Holiday Traveling Tips


All of us know that traveling during the holidays can be stressful, but it is something we must do in order to be with our families and friends on such special days. Whether you’re driving or taking a plane, there are certain tips that can help you have a safe and less stressful traveling experience.
If your loved ones live in another state, and you’re planning on taking a plane, it would be helpful to book your flight well in advance and avoid booking a flight on peak traveling dates. To avoid financial stress of an expensive flight, take the time to shop around to find the best deals. Be sure to leave your home as early as you can to avoid the stress of missing your flight. To keep the kids entertained during the flight, make sure to bring activities such as: coloring books, IPods, games, picture books, and portable DVD players. In order to avoid extra expenses because of your luggage, pack as lightly as you can.
Your loved ones may not be located too far away but just long enough for a hectic car ride. Before you leave, have your car checked out to make sure that there are no issues with your vehicle. When leaving the warm state of Florida, make sure your tires are ready to drive in colder weather conditions, especially if you are going somewhere with snow. Make sure you know where you are going and where the closest rest stops are to avoid getting lost or taking long detours. Remember, the colder you are, the more tired you will most likely be. If driving in cold weather, bring snacks and water to keep you awake and alert. 
No matter where you are traveling this holiday season, we at Westgate-Jones Insurance Agency want to wish you happy holidays and safe travels!
