Everyone loves to get away when a long holiday week-end rolls around. Chances are, you are one of those folks. We have some tips to help you stay sane while traveling over one of these holiday week-ends. Holidays are a great reason to get out of town and a time to reconnect with family and friends and Tuckaway still has some availability for Easter next month.
Make Reservations Early
Did you know that many rooms are booked months in advance for holiday week-ends? So, once you have decided to travel over a holiday week-end, decide on your location and book your room as soon as possible. This will avoid any disappointment as the time gets closer.
Know Your Travel Budget
One of the quickest ways to lose your sanity while on vacation is to find out you are flat out broke! Make a travel budget before you leave home, preferably when you book your vacation. This will allow you to plan and know what extra activities you will be able to afford to do. Trail Wallet is a user friendly budget app for iPhone users, one worth checking out.
If your budget is tight, check with the Convention and Visitors Bureau of your destination to see what free events are happening over the holiday week-end. Many local communities do have free events during peak travel times. To stay sane, connect with them before you leave home! This can help you and your family save some money, yet have a great time on your holiday week-end.
Pack Your Patience
Patience is one of those things that you must have along with you when you venture out on any holiday week-end. Airports are busy and highways are packed! If you can drive at odd times of the day, such as 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., that will help. Congestion on highways is not fun and can easily make the road trip a disaster in a short period of time. Pack healthy snacks and plenty of bottled water to keep everyone content and sane. Be sure to arrive at the airport at least two hours before your flight takes off. Security lines can be long and stressful for everyone. Again, pack your patience!
When you book early, know your budget and pack your patience, you can stay sane while traveling over a holiday week-end. After all, wouldn’t you agree that your travel time will make views like this worth all your travel woes?
