1. Pack Only What You Need

It may be tempting to overpack but packing as light as possible is advisable. Think about how many days you’ll be out of town and plan your outfits according to the weather. Consider any extra weight you’ll be adding with gifts, don’t get stuck at the counter with luggage weight over the limit for your airline.

2. Check Available Online Check-in Options

Get through the airport easily by checking in online. Most airlines allow you this option so you can reserve a better seat or get through to security faster, which can be a time-consuming ordeal with long holiday lines. If your airline offers curbside luggage drops, take advantage and skip the counter.

3. Plan Hotel Accommodations

The rush of travelers may make it difficult to find accommodations that fit your family, budget, and location needs. Book your hotel accommodations ahead of time and make reservations for activities or dining experiences, as demand is on the rise with everyone itching to get out.

4. Get to the Airport on Time

There are plenty of factors that may cause delays which you need to consider when traveling to the airport. Make sure to be prepared with all of your luggage and any snacks and documents you might need. Check your specific airline’s website for any safety requirements. Consider heavy traffic closer to the holidays, arrive early if possible.

5. Reserve Reliable Airport Transportation

Depending on the length of your stay, airport parking may be out of the question when it comes to cost and convenience. Especially when you are traveling with a family or have many pieces of luggage, lugging everything (or everyone) onto a shuttle bus or train from airport parking areas is a huge challenge.
