‘Tis the season for early Cyber Monday deals, extra sweet holiday drinks, and making sure that you book your planet tickets before all the flights back to your hometown are gone. As you get your schedules set for the beginning of the Holiday season, here are a few travel tips to keep handy so you can head to your destination with ease and comfort.
PLAN IN ADVANCE
Whether you need to download the Airline app to scan your boarding pass, print your boarding pass, or make sure that you get to the airport with enough time to check in, be sure to plan for enough time to allow for any last-minute issues. If getting to the airport with an hour to spare is how you roll, then we all need to strive to be like you.
MINIMIZE YOUR LUGGAGE
When you’re going back home to see your extended family, do you really need to bring seven outfits and four pairs of boots? The answer is probably no. There are a multitude of ways to lightly pack several outfits, two pair of shoes and your toiletries. Even if you’re planning a tropical vacation, you could find ways to decrease your luggage to one checked bag and one carry on. Trust me. You will enjoy the lack of stress. Well, I’m not talking about Aunt Mildred or Uncle Frank.
BRING TRAVEL SNACKS
I’ve been on quick flights up the coast and International flights across the ocean, but few things are more annoying than not having a good snack when you’re only halfway to your destination and your stomach starts growling. When the prepackaged airplane meal or the sad pack of salted peanuts isn’t doing it for you, you’ll be happy that you brought a stash of healthy Kind bars, almonds, freshly cut fruit, or even some trail mix.
MOISTURIZE FOR THE PLANE RIDE
Few things in the world will leech moisture from your skin as quick as a being up in the air in an enclosed space. This is why you MUST carry a moisturizer that contains hyaluronic acid or perhaps a glowy sheet mask that will allow you to retain your skin’s natural moisture barrier. Don’t we all just want to land at our destination looking like a supermodel? Well. Sort of.
CONSOLIDATE YOUR BAGGAGE
A useful gadget like Click & Carry will allow you to consolidate your bags on one easy-to-carry grip handle so you won’t be forced to get wire markings on your wrists. Trust me. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
