Holiday Season Travel Guide

Tips for Traveling During the Holiday Season
1. Keep an eye out for holiday deals. Although this is peak travel season in many destinations, there are also great deals and discounts celebrating the Yuletide season.
2. Take early or late flights. This is a good way to save money, even during the packed holiday season. Fewer people are on the move during odd hours, so travelers can avoid packed airports and flights by taking early morning or late-night flights.
3. Avoid bringing bulky gifts. Traveling light is always a good idea. If you have to take presents, don’t wrap them as you may be required to unwrap the gifts for security.
4. Embrace local culture. While you may have your own traditions in Christmastime, the beauty of traveling is taking you out of your comfort zone. Make the most of your holiday trip by indulging in local traditions, whether that involves attending a Las Posadas procession in Mexico, making advent calendars in Switzerland, or watching fireworks display in Central America.
