29: Money Doesn't Grow on Christmas Trees: Holiday Travel Hacks
Updated: Nov 29, 2022
Travel During Odd Hours. Consider taking the insane 5 a.m. flight.
Track Fares. Look at Google Flights.
Travel Insurance. We like it this time of year but check what it covers! Check cancellation and change policies. COVID kids get sick etc. Want flexibility during that time.
Get a Ride. Ask for a ride to the airport
Pack Snacks. Save on long lines and money!
TSA PreCheck. If you don’t have them, get them. Also, look at CLEAR (get it for free through an American Express card). You can gift the TSA Pre-check to a family member!
Credit Cards are GREAT for Travel. Chase Sapphire and Capital One.
Hotel During Holidays. Look for hotels with free parking and free breakfast.
Favorite Websites: Home exchange. Airbnb. VRBO. CheapOair, Kayak, autoslash, Turo, Hopper
Decorate with Flair. Don’t get caught up in over-priced decorations. You can look around your yard or just do less.
LED Holiday Lights. Can save on electricity.
Holiday Card. Send it a holiday card online. Saves on shipping and printing.
