While excessive traffic and expensive plane tickets are unavoidable to some extent, Thanksgiving travel doesn’t have to be all bad. Use these tips from Blackburn CDJR for the best possible travel experience this season.
If you’re flying this year, try to buy your tickets as early as possible. This will give you a bigger chance of finding arrival and departure times that work for you. However, if you can be flexible with the time and date that you leave, you’ll be able to find a better deal. Still, tickets will be pricy because of the holiday, so cut back on extra costs like snacks and luggage by packing light and bringing your own food with you.
When you’re driving, you’ll have no way of avoiding traffic, as this season has the highest traffic of the entire year. However, you can do your best to stay away from the worst of it by planning your route ahead of time. Try to find a way to get to your destination that will avoid major highways. If you can, leave before Wednesday and return before or after the Sunday following Thanksgiving. As with flying, you should pack plenty of snacks and entertainment to keep you satiated, just in case you do find yourself at a standstill on the highway.
