Before your flight out of Sky Harbor Airport (PHX), Tucson International Airport (TUS), or any of the smaller Arizona airports, learn some pro travel tips to get you where you need to be, smoothly.

1. Check Weather Forecasts

Be sure to check your destination’s weather forecasts as you plan out your outfits when you are packing for your trip. Consider the layers you’ll need if you’re headed to cold climates. Carry on or wear your heavy coat if you need more space or weight allowance for presents or other items. Packing your heavier items like pants, jackets, and other items in your carry-on rather than your checked baggage can allow you to fit more in your check-in.

2. Research Restrictions

With COVID-19 measures still at airports, airlines having their own specific rules and some cities requiring vaccination records, it’s important to look into restrictions to make sure you don’t run into any challenges while enjoying your trip. For example, when traveling to New York you will need a proof of vaccination to enter most establishments.

3. Arrange Transportation

Depending on your destination, you’ll need to make sure you have a ride to and from the airports you’ll be flying through. Whether you are leaving through an Arizona airport, or arriving, arrange your ride ahead of time by booking with VIP Taxi. It will be extremely busy because of holiday travel, so booking ahead of time will ensure availability. 

Simply book via phone, text, online, or by downloading the VIP Taxi mobile app, where you can easily manage and track your ride.

4. Make Reservations Ahead of Time

Whatever city you are heading to, consider the fact that many visitors are thinking of doing the same activities you are planning. Expect hotels and restaurants to be booked and with some restrictions on capacity they might even get booked weeks ahead of time. Making a reservation is highly recommended especially if you might be celebrating the season with a large group.

5. Keep a Checklist

Before even departing, write down what you need such as documents, medications, gadgets, chargers, toiletries, presents for whom you’re visiting, and more. You or your family may have specific needs that you don’t want to forget.
