Tip #58 - Surviving Holiday Travel
Traveling during the holidays can be stressful, but you can make it easier on yourself with a little planning. Ship presents ahead of time, that way you ensure they don't get lost on a flight. It is against TSA regulations to put wrapped packages in your carry on and your checked bags. If you travel on the actual holiday, airports are typically less crowded on Thanksgiving and Christmas, as are freeways. Always check with those picking you up before you book, and make sure traveling on the actual day of celebration isn't going to put a crimp in the festivities.
