Thanksgiving Travel Cheat Sheet


Thanksgiving Travel Cheat Sheet

As security measures ramp up around the holidays with higher volumes of travelers, and with pat-downs and new scans, navigating packed airports and overbooked flights just got a bit dicier. Expect that you'll have lots of company in your quest to share a turkey dinner with relatives

Best place to go during the Thanksgiving Holiday? Overseas. There, they don't care about Thanksgiving. If you travel directly, you are likely to experience minute crowds compared to domestic travel.

DO:

Call to confirm
Delayed or canceled flights are a major cause of holiday stress. Call the airlines within 24 hours of departure to confirm your flight information. You can also sign up for text and email alerts about flight delays and cancellations from your airline.

How To Never Be Late Again When Traveling


How To Never Be Late Again When Traveling

Traveling for business, you know you have to be up at certain times to make your meetings. Or make sure you are notified of an upcoming meeting. This is especially important if you are traveling across time zones as your internal clock will be thrown off.

Traveling for leisure, you might think I am on vacation, why do I need to get with an alarm. On most days, I would hope you do not. If you have any activities planned, looking to do some sightseeing, or have reservations, you will need to keep track of the time.

Traveling During the Cold Season - What to Take and Do


Traveling During the Cold Season -
What to Take and Do


Every year in America alone, there will be more than 1 billion colds reported, resulting in more than 50 million missed workdays along with 60 million school days. And you see the news reports, school notices, and health alerts about cold and flu season. Why is it this time of the year? The answer is in how cold and flu viruses spread.
The “cold season” begins in November when the number of reported colds and flu illnesses rises sharply and remains elevated until late April. This is the case for North America. In the opposite hemisphere, the season has just passed. We keep passing colds back and forth across the hemispheres like the great, big, global family that we are. The main reason for it could be airplane travel.
A Harvard study found that domestic airline travel volume in November, especially around the Thanksgiving holiday, was an accurate indicator of how rapidly a flu virus would spread. The more air travelers there are, the higher are the rates for colds. The combination of drier air and people spending more time indoors enables the germs to survive during these times of the year and to migrate.
Cold weather doesn’t give you a cold. However, spending more time indoors causes you to breathe more germ-infested air, which likely contributes to why you get sick more often in the winter.
