The countdown has already started and 2019 is right around the corner! Everyone without exception is excited to celebrate this special time of the year. People are making plans, setting up new goals, and giving themselves a second chance to welcome new beginnings, experiences, and adventures.
While all this sounds great and promising, no one can actually deny that holidays can be a real hassle, especially if you are planning to book your flight ticket, hit the airport, and fly to a destination you have always craved to visit!
So, if traveling is among your to-do list, then, be prepared for long stressful lines, cramped planes, backed-up highways, and much more! However, you can always make your travel experience more fun, enjoyable, and less stressful by avoiding these 8 common mistakes!
Never Travel At The Same Time As Everyone Else
This is one of the most common mistakes that almost all travelers make! By doing this, you will risk being stuck in the long and stressful security lines and the traffic jams. Therefore, it is always wise to be flexible about your travel dates and times.
So, deciding to drive or fly back home the next Sunday after Thanksgiving is definitely a big NO! Instead, try to shorten your weekend by a day and travel back home early to avoid the worst of the holiday crowds!
Never Fly With Wrapped Gifts
We can fully understand how stressful it is to do everything at the very last moment that’s why it’s wise to prepare things in advance such as packing your travel bag. However, this doesn’t apply to gifts you’ve purchased for your loved ones.
In fact, you should never wrap your gifts before you leave as if the TSA agent finds your gifts suspicious, they might end up ripping into your well-wrapped gifts to make sure that it’s a gift and not something else!
