If you plan on traveling this holiday season, now is the time to make plans. Travelers who don’t plan ahead often run into more problems than those who do and that can raise stress levels. That’s something no traveler needs this holiday season which is why we’re here to help! Here are some holiday-saving Thanksgiving travel tips from us here at El Dorado Mazda.
- Technology – Use all of the available technology to your advantage. Check out websites and apps that help find the cheapest tickets and plan the fastest routes. See whether you should balance fuel economy or travel time and plan accordingly. Best of all, real-time traffic updates are sent to navigation systems and apps that can help you avoid problems on the road.
- Packing – How you pack can change the way you travel. Packing light will ensure that you don’t pay as much in the way of baggage fees while drivers will find a lighter load eases their mind. Instead of bringing everything along for the ride, send it to your destination through a mail carrier.
- Planning – Flyers would do well to arrive at the airport a few hours early. Check in and find your gate. Arriving early is better than arriving late, after all. Drivers should plan their route and allow some extra time for unforeseen obstacles. Brings snacks and fuel up before leaving to ensure less frequent stops.
