How to survive holiday travel

imagesThere’s not much good news for fliers this Thanksgiving. Airports will be packed, planes will have few — if any — empty seats and you might sit apart from a loved one, unless you pay extra.

During the 12-day Thanksgiving travel period, 25.1 million people are projected to fly, an increase of 1.5 percent from last year, according to Airlines for America, the industry’s trade and lobbying group.

That would make this the busiest year since 2007, when an estimated 26 million people flew over the holiday period.

The busiest travel day will be Sunday, Dec. 1, with an estimated 2.56 million passengers, followed by Wednesday, Nov. 27, with 2.42 million passengers. In case you were wondering, the slowest travel day is Thanksgiving itself, with just 1.44 million people expected to fly.

But don’t fret, there are some things you can do — in some cases paying a little extra — to make your trip more pleasant, or to at least buffer the damage if something goes wrong.

Travel Secrets!

can't-keep-a-Secret

This book could save you hundreds of dollars on your next trip.  Here is what author James Steubing has to say about his book: ” I get so mad when I try to book a flight or plan a vacation. I don’t know about you, but the cost of a decent vacation is a lot more than I can usually afford, but I know we need vacations to recharge our batteries and enjoy one on one time with our family.

In addition to the outrageous hotel, airfare and cruise prices, you still have to wade through a sea of bogus claims, confusing package deals and tons of travel sites just to find a price you can live with. It’s enough to make you pull your hair out!
Well, after three years of exhaustive research, I have compiled a “tell all” guide that will show you, in great detail, how to travel for much less than normal (up to 50% to 90% off, sometimes even for free) and get more bang for your hard-earned buck.”
