It’s almost Thanksgiving, which means family, friends, lots of food, and travel. While it can be a lovely time of the year, it is also one that can quite easily lead to stress. To keep yourself sane on the road, consider these useful Thanksgiving travel tips and leave your worries at home.
Minimize the headaches that come with travel by making a packing checklist, getting your budget squared away, and finding a pet sitter in advance. You can even call your bank and let them know you’re traveling ahead of time so they don’t shut down your credit cards for what they might deem suspicious activity.
Use Apps to Navigate
Turns out there’s a lot of convenience packed into your smartphone. Use GasBuddy to find the cheapest gas prices near you, or any of many other restaurant, hotel, and event apps to find local activities at your destination.
Overloading your vehicle reduces fuel economy. Plus, you don’t need to bring all that with you just for a few days out of town, do you? Try to think about what you and your family really need to bring along.
Travel Early, Leave Late
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Friday after are some of the busiest days for travel. Avoid the traffic by planning ahead when to head out on your journey so that you miss the bulk of the rush both ways.
