PLAN EARLY! Your total cost and stress levels for airfares, rental cars, and hotels are much lower when you book early. LATE NEWS – Airlines are announcing SURCHARGES for high density days like the Super Bowl. Shop and compare!
WATCH OUT FOR HIDDEN COSTS like unaccompanied minor fees, baggage fees, hotel parking fees, etc.
Cancellation Policies. Make sure you are clear what they are! If there’s a chance plans could change, consider paying more for the right to do so – or buy trip cancellation insurance.
Allow Plenty of Time. Late arrivals and missed connections will dramatically raise travel costs and stress levels. LEAVE EARLY; remember long lines and delays are “normal” for Holiday travel!
