Halloween is over, Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. Lots of families are planning holiday trips, but will the travel be a joy or pain in the….baggage? The forecasts for air travel this year are not so joyous, per Air travel expert and Wichita State University associate professor Dean Headley. Two of his simple to follow tips are to book early, and to plan on traveling on Tuesday or Wednesday.
One other suggestion shared by many travel experts is to ship your bags via FedEx or UPS ahead of time to avoid baggage issues at the airport. If that isn’t practical for you, make sure each piece of luggage has a bright, easily identified luggage tag firmly attached to the handle — and make sure a duplicate tag is tucked inside each bag as well. You can get them for only $2.00 each at Travel ID Cards.
What about baggage fees? You need to measure your luggage and weigh each piece as well before heading off to the airport. And don’t forget to compare baggage fees just as you compare ticket prices! The difference can be substantial, especially for a family with multiple pieces.
Many people now take their pets with them on trips, but forward planning for your pet is critical. The baggage fee link above shows pet flight fees that vary from $35 to $250. But that isn’t the whole story. Many flights limit the number of animals on each plane, so you need to be sure yours isn’t bumped because the limit has been reached. And make sure you have thoroughly researched the requirements for your carrier. Lots of information and a good chart on pets is on iFly.com, including the cost each way.
Don’t forget your identification. You can get ID’s for adults with special information on any medical conditions or emergency contacts, children, teens, and pets at Travel ID Cards — and special discounts for the holidays.
