Four Tips To Make Holiday Air Travel Easier

Are you traveling by air this week in order to celebrate Thanksgiving where you belong…or at least where you feel obligated to be. USA Today published a list of holiday travel tips…they’re all good general travel tips, but especially helpful when airports are crowded and stress is high.

Here are the most useful ones:

  • Pack carefully–light enough that you don’t need to check any bags, but carefully enough so you don’t hog the entire overhead bin.
  • If possible, leave your liquids, weapons, and gel insoles at home.
  • Check in at home and print your boarding pass to save time.
  • Be polite to airline employees, especially when things go wrong. Niceness can go a long way when you experience problems.
