Planning to travel during New Year? Make sure you pack all your things, know your airports, and bring enough food for when you’re waiting in line. Some tips that can help you with your travel during New Year are:
Avoid Peak Dates
Although it might be too late for changing the date now, make sure your next New Year travel is not around the peak moment. Try to travel two or three days before New Year so that you’re not going to get stuck in long queues.
Make sure you’re prepared to wait long hours at the airport when traveling during New Year. One thing you can do in the meantime is shopping! This is a great opportunity for you to find gifts for people or to treat yourself.
Know Your Stuff
Check your airports, check your departure time, check your passport, and all official papers. You’ll save quite some time if you have everything well prepared in advance.
Plot Connections Carefully
One thing that I always do when traveling is to increase my connections. Make sure you know some people from the country you’re traveling to. They may even come to the airport to wait for you and pick you up. This is great, especially during peak travel times, and you also make new friends and have a place to stay.
I always advise people to leave early when they have to take the plane. Make sure you leave as early as possible to avoid lots of security checks, full parking lots, absent shuttles, and so on.
When packing, keep in mind that most airlines are now charging travelers a fee for checking any bags on domestic flights, so trim your luggage load and pack smartly.
Consider Package Deals
Peak travel periods can be the best time to buy package deals (such as air/hotel), even for folks who would normally never buy one, as the bundled pricing offered by packages can be very competitive.
Keep Your Calm
The main thing during your travel is to keep your calm! Don’t be stressed and keep your smile. Everything will be fine.
Some bonus tips involve:
• Gas up the night before you travel
• Have emergency phone numbers saved on your mobile such as hotel, car rental agency
• Don’t over-pack your luggage
• Charge your mobile phone
• Make sure your pets are well taken care of before you leave
