Travel Tips for a Stress Free Holiday Season

Posted On: 11/05/2018

November is finally here, and we all know what that means — cold weather, hot drinks, and plenty of holidays to plan for. As Thanksgiving and Christmas are fast-approaching, there are several things you’ll need to start thinking about. From where you’re staying to how you’ll get there, we’ve put together a few tips to keep your holidays as stress free as possible.

The first tip is definitely to start planning as soon as possible, Flights, hotel rooms, and train tickets book up around the holiday seasons, making them particularly expensive days to travel on. The earlier you start, the more likely you’ll be able to book what you want and at a reasonable price. Make sure you think about not only hotel rooms and flights, but transportation to and from them. Booking ahead will take the added stress of finding a taxi or figuring out public transportation away.

Next, pack smart. This may seem like an obvious tip, but packing both lightly and strategically will ensure you can squeeze in everything you need, from thick sweaters and gifts for in-laws to formal wear and swimsuits. Check the weather, think ahead of what events you’ll be attending, and don’t bring anything unnecessary — it’ll save you time and room when you’re in-transit.

Finally, do your research. From clean hotels with great locations to the most reliable transportation services, reading through customer reviews and policies are important in figuring out how to ensure your holiday season travel stays stress-free. Keep in mind if you have any special requirements, such as handicap accessibility, child seats, or allergies.

Have safe and stress-free holidays, and most importantly enjoy your time with your loved ones. You can rely on GO Boston to get you to wherever you need to be as safely and comfortably as possible. Be sure to make a reservation for your holiday travel soon!
