BILLINGS, Mont., Dec. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- According to AAA, close to 47 million Americans packed up and hit the road this past Thanksgiving, traveling over 40 miles to friends' and relatives' homes throughout the U.S. and beyond. For the majority, the best way to get there was by driving. An estimated 42 million packed up the car and drove to their destination, thanks to cheap gas prices and long lines at airports around the country.
Now that Thanksgiving is over, millions more are gearing up to head out once again to destinations in the U.S. and abroad. As we approach the busy holiday travel season, what can we expect to see? Coconut Club Vacations reviews what to expect and tips to help travelers enjoy the season.
For many, lines, weather related delays and higher prices will be common this holiday, but for those who plan accordingly, even travel during the busiest time of the year can be simple.
The first thing to remember is that millions of travelers are all out for the same reason, to celebrate the holidays with loved ones. Understanding this is a busy time, it is simpler for smart travelers to avoid the largest issues relating to holiday travel, including the longest lines. Travelers are advised to avoid peak travel dates to save time and hassles. This year, travelers can expect to see the biggest lines and delays for holiday travel on December 23rd and 24th as well as the 27th. At the New Year, avoid travel on December 30th. Travelers can expect to see long lines and delays on these days.
Another thing to consider before traveling is the gifts. As always, it is important to remember the screening process and rules regarding carry-on bags can make certain gifts a big no. Travelers are advised to either ship gifts ahead, check them or make sure they follow all TSA rules regarding carry-ons. Do not wrap gifts and follow the rules.
