Halloween has kicked off the holiday season and, with November already here, it’s time to start making plans for your Thanksgiving travels. Traveling around Thanksgiving can leave many drivers and passengers stressed out. Taking a step back and assessing the situation is sometimes the best way to determine the best course of action. Here at Tom Naquin Nissan, we have some excellent Thanksgiving travel tips to help you arrive at your destination this holiday season.
- Plan – Thanksgiving is the busiest time to travel out of the entire year which means proper planning goes a long way. Schedule flights well ahead of time and arrive a few hours, if not more, early to avoid getting stuck in long lines. Make sure you have everything you need as well. The last thing any traveler wants is to have to head home to grab the plane tickets.
- Drive – Driving is still a viable option for many travelers, but it’s gotten a bit more technical in the past few years. Navigation systems and smartphones can help avoid road hazards like accidents and traffic jams, making the trip go by much quicker. Use technology to your advantage this holiday season.
- Pack – No matter how you plan on traveling, try to pack light. Doing so lowers the stress of forgetting something as there’s less to keep track of. If needed, ship your other items, like extra clothes, through the mail to avoid baggage fees.
