If your family and friends live out of town, you’re probably faced with the daunting task of Thanksgiving travel. Indeed, thousands and thousands of Americans will hit the road—and the sky—this fall to be with their loved ones this Thanksgiving. If you’re heading out, use these tips from Simi Valley Buick GMC for good planning.
On the Road
It’s nearly impossible to avoid traffic when you’re traveling over Thanksgiving weekend. With that in mind, you should be sure to bring plenty of snacks and entertainment, such as podcasts and CDs, in case you get stuck in traffic. However, you might be able to avoid the worst of it if you leave before Wednesday, or if you plan your route ahead of time and find a way to avoid major highways.
In the Air
If you’re flying for Thanksgiving, you’re not alone. Tickets will go fast, and prices will be high, so the earlier you can buy your ticket, the better. When planning your arrival and departure, give yourself plenty of extra time in case of delays. If you weren’t able to save money on your tickets themselves, you can at least avoid paying extra for luggage by packing light. You might want some extra room in your suitcase, anyway, just in case there’s some leftover pie to take home with you!
