Five Travel tips for The Christmas Holidays

Travelling during the Christmas holidays is a tradition for some people to spend time with family while some decide to take a vacation to rest from the year’s stress. But the decision to travel during this time should be accompanied with a plan or the whole process will turn out to be a nightmare giving you more stress for that short time than the whole year’s stress.

Here are tips that will make your trip a smooth one.


Do not travel at Peak time

There are peak days around the holiday. Avoid travelling on these dates because you will spend twice as much as you would have and this is not good news for your pockets because you may end up sacrificing important things because of the extra travel cost.

Leave Early

Apapa gridlock

Do not take things for granted and think that the road will be free. Leave for the airport or bus station early because there might be heavy gridlock and queues that will delay you.

Pack wisely

It is true you want to show off that you are doing well and are in sync with fashion but pack only a few things that you need. Because you might likely get a gift where you are going and carrying extra luggage to and fro is not a good idea.

Take advantage of deals

Once a travel agent is offering a deal, take advantage of it but research to have information of the terms and conditions before jumping on it.

Be Calm

Travelling is stressful, it sometimes frays the nerves. Some airline and bus station workers are very unhelpful and annoying and wield so much power during travel periods. Ensure you keep calm and ignore them if they want to aggravate you.
