During the holidays,travel agencies for making holiday travel arrangements are probably closed. To eliminate headaches,and save money,use your I phone or computor to book online. Store front shops may be off for the holidays, but the internet is open for business 24/7. Off course,calling the hotels or airlines directly is always a good idea!
Don’t wait till the last minute.
Most everyone takes the holidays off,you should not assume someone will be open during the holidays. The holidays ,are definately,the busiest time of the year. Work on the phone, Stay online 24/7 if necessary,get the reservations in order,because even in the best laid plans there is always problems.
Try and think of everything.
Make a checklist. Especially if you’ve booking a vacation home, cottage, or other accommodations that does not have room service. Bring nonperishible foods,cash,medicine,fishing tackle,bring whatever you we need to make your stay more enjoyable and save money.With most businesses being closed for the holidays,you can’t depend on convenience stores. Before you head-out on your holiday vacation,make sure you have all the supplies you will need for your stay..
Get an early start.
During the holidays traffic is absolutely horrible and that’s an known fact. Get a jump on the traffic by leaving early. If you are late departing you are going to get caught in that traffic jam ! We’ve all been there! So plan on departing early.
If you are driving to your holiday vacation,have a professional check your car,or if you do your own maintainence ,make sure to check,belts,engine oil,fluids,and proper inflation in your tires. fill the tank with gas to eliminate unnecessary stops. Check the routes you will be taking ,before hand.If you don’t have a GPS,use maps to determine the best routes.
Calculate the number of rest stops required for your trip.Make sure you plan every aspect of your trip, so you will eliminate the chance of making a wrong turn and getting lost.I have driven to Florida many times and learned that if you do turn onto the wrong highway,don’t panic ,turn around and go back to the place where you made the wrong turn.
Renting a car is a popular way to travel for you holidays, choose a suitable vehicle for your vacation needs. Renting a sports coupe may make a great choice for couple on a weekend getaway, but it’s not the perfect vehicle if you’re going on a long run or traveling with a lot of gear.
If you are going to rent a car, make sure to read the fine print before signing any contracts for your car. Be sure to inquire about insurance for the vehicle,if something bad happens,you won’t be liable.
