Making the Holiday Travel as Painless As It Can Be

“With the holidays coming it also means only one thing: that holiday travel is also fast at hand. Nothing dampers the idea of the holidays quite like the pain of thinking about the travel. It doesn’t matter how far you have to go. If you’re traveling, it’s going to be a nightmare and there’s pretty much nothing you can do about it. It’s going to ruin the whole time. Not only do you have to travel there, but then once the holidays are over, you have to travel back. And that travel back is the worst because you don’t even have the anticipation of getting to see everyone, you’re returning to your boring old life that you ate anyway. So what’s the point? Shouldn’t you just skip the holidays? No – you can actually make the holiday travel great! Here are some tips!

Treat Yourself and Fly

Sometimes families think about how a long road trip, while painful, is actually the way to go because of the cost of flying these days. But sometimes a little extra money spent is well worth it to avoid an experience you know will ruin the whole week or long weekend. Sometimes there are ways to get cheaper flights, and that can really be the best way to make sure that your travel experience is okay. Also, don’t fly on the big travel days. You want to allow yourself a day before and after the big travel days, that way, you can be less stressed, and it’ll be much better.

Drive Someone Else’s Car

One thing that causes holiday travel stress is the wear and tear you know you’re going to put on your vehicle. And not only that but you have a small car and you have to cram in your whole family and all the presents you’re bringing for everyone. Not only that but you’ll have to bring them all back with you – you can’t leave Junior at grandmother’s house for a month like you accidentally did last year! She’s on to you! So you can make it more fun. For example, you can rent a van so that you have all the space you need to stretch out and be comfortable. A rental may seem like a lot, but it isn’t. Check the prices here: Then think of the wear and tear you’re saving, and also the fun of having a roomy vehicle to get around in.

A lot of bigger cars these days come with ways of watching movies while on the road. It’s a fun thing for the whole family. If you’re the one stuck driving, make sure you put on movies that you’ve seen a lot of times so that you can follow along with just the dialogue. That way you get to use your imagination while hugging the road and avoiding pot holes. It’ll be a great way to pass the time and get to that holiday pot roast quicker. “
