The holiday season is a wonderful time of the year but it can also be incredibly stressful. Many people don’t travel throughout the year save for the holidays and that can cause some problems. Travelers that aren’t used to congested roadways or crowded airports can slow things down. Here are some helpful holiday travel tips from us here at Nissan of Lake Charles that will help make starting the most wonderful time of the year less stressful.
- Pack Light – Heading home for the holidays? Consider shipping your extra clothes and presents through the mail instead of packing them. Doing so will ensure you get through security quicker and leave drivers will less to pack into the car. Flyers could also avoid hefty baggage fees by bringing a single carry-on.
- Eat – No matter how much of a hurry you’re in, grab a bite to eat along the way. Many travelers choose to forego eating until they reach their destination in order to save time. As a result, they often grow irritable, and that isn’t good when stress levels are already running high.
- Research – Do your research on which airlines offers the best deals. Drivers should plan their route ahead of time. Make sure to use the technology made available by smartphones, tablets, and navigation systems as well!
