Planning holiday travel is an exhilarating time, from visiting family and friends to taking a trip to just relax before the new year, the holidays are an entire season of celebration! So in preparation for the upcoming season, we’ve come up with the perfect holiday travel checklist!
Book The Trip
First things first, you need to book your trip! If you are looking for a flight that won’t put a huge dent in your bank account, a great place to start looking for flights is during the work week according to this Google study.
Buy Travel Insurance
It might be tempting to just add travel insurance to your plane ticket, but before you hit the ‘buy’ button, take a look at a separate insurance provider like battleface. Chances are, you’ll have more coverage that you would with a traditional airline, and battleface actually allows you to customize your policy based on your individual travel needs. Plus, if you get in a bind during your trip, you have a whole team of professionals able to help you navigate the situation. What could be better than that?
Traveling internationally means you’ll definitely need your passport, so make sure your passport is up-to-date. If it isn’t get it updated pronto! You’ll be glad you didn’t wait until the last minute.
Plan For Everything
Now that you have an idea of how you are getting to your destination, it is time to begin planning your trip. While you might want to dive right into booking your accommodations, finding your means of transportation, and creating an epic bucket list of sites to see, this is also the perfect time to ensure you are accounting for things like visa requirements, COVID-19 restrictions by using this travel tool and common language phrases.
Tie-Up Loose Ends
If you are going to be gone for more than a week, make sure to put a hold on your mail, pay any bills that might be due, and tell your family members and friends how to contact you. If you have any pets, get a pet sitter, make an appointment at the kennel, or make arrangements for your pet to stay with a close friend or family member.
No matter your destination, we recommend packing as light as possibly. Packing only what you need, will decrease the clutter, keep your suitcase within airline weight restrictions, and lessen travel stress.
