Christmas is less than 6 weeks away. If you’re yet to plan your getaway, don’t panic! Jovago.com travel experts have a few tips for you to escape the madness that is last minute holiday planning.
1. Avoid peak travel dates
Depending on what days Christmas and New Year’s fall on, there are certain days to avoid. Try to travel on dates further away from holiday dates to avoid the last-minute travel crowd.
2. Book as early as possible
It’s never too late to book a hotel but it can be too late to book the hotel of your preference. The earlier you book, the surer you are of getting your desired stay. Booking early means getting exactly what you want
3. Shop around and browse for deals and packages
This time of year promises endless travel packages for every budget. Go online and look for what best suits your travel needs and expectations. Consider taking into account customer reviews to help you make an informed decision.
4. Pack wisely
It is a lot easier to get through security and airport check-in with a backpack than with two suitcases, a duffel bag and two carry-ons. It’s been proven that we only ever use about 40% of what we pack for a trip. Cut out the excess, sail through the airport and save time.
5. Choose your travel times wisely
It is recommended to travel either very early in the morning or very late at night. These are times most travelers avoid. This is ideal so that you can miss the holiday crowd for a hassle-free travel.
