    Booking in advance is always better because at least you are sure that you will have a place to spend your day
     at. Booking a cheap hotel makes it possible to slash down the accommodation expenses to a large extent.

   The holiday season is nearly upon us, and with more and more people gearing up this year to travel
during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season, the thought of doing so yourself can be a
daunting prospect. Fortunately, if you can keep a few things in mind, the upcoming holiday travel
season doesn't have to be quite as overwhelming as in years past.

Directions Are Everything

Sure, there are all the stereotypes about men not wanting to ask for directions, and the validity of those
stereotypes is for another time. That being said, getting quality directions that you can trust and that
you know will get you there is paramount to making your trip as smooth as possible. Calling your
destination, be that a brother, grandmother, uncle, or hotel, for directions is a good first step. Not only
will they more than likely know the best way to get you there, but they will also probably know go
detours in the event of traffic, accidents, or construction.

In the event that your destination doesn't have good directions for you, there are seemingly endless
websites online that will give you turn by turn directions, distances, times, and even maps. Take those
with a grain of salt as they may not be completely up to date due to construction changes to traffic
patterns, addition or subtraction of exits, or the addition or removal of traffic signs saying which roads
you're allowed to travel on.

Games, Movies, Books, and Snacks

The kids don't like the 13 hour drive any more than you do, but at least you get to drive. Video games,
card games, personal video players, even books (if motion sickness isn't an issue) are a great way to
help make the drive pass for kids. Many of your local electronics stores sell VHS and DVD players that
have small monitors already attached for a very reasonable price and allow you to avoid having an
entire home entertainment center installed into your car just for road trips.

Make Sure Your Car is Working Fine

Checking your tires for air pressure and tread and checking the oil and coolant in your engine is an
easy way to make sure that you're not one of those families on the side of the road waiting for a tow
truck. Every year families find themselves on the side of the road with flat tires from worn tread or bad

air pressure or with engines billowing smoke from something that would have cost next to nothing to
have checked and fixed ahead of time. Spending a little bit of time and effort up front can save you
spending a lot of time and money later.

Check Your Insurance

While you certainly don't want anything bad to happen, in the event that something bad does happen, it
helps to have your insurance information with you. Pretty much any state you're travelling through will
require you to have some sort of car insurance, even if it's just cheap car insurance. Making sure that
you have your insurance information, whether it's North Carolina car insurance, Virginia car insurance,
or another state, is a good way to make sure that if the worst happens, you know what you're covered
against.

Before you set out you should also check to see what your insurance covers in the way of towing,
roadside assistance, and rentals in the event something does happen to your car and you need help or
another way to continue your vacation. Getting stuck at Grandma's house because your insurance
doesn't cover a rental and your car exploded is no way to spend the Thanksgiving and Christmas
holiday.

Be Prepared

This is the holiday driving season, when the seeming entirety of the United States driving population
will converge on the roads at the same time. Plan ahead to give yourself plenty of time, factoring in
stops for food, gas, and just to stretch your legs. Leave early and expect to get to your destination
early. Remember that for every great driver out there that will let you merge in front of them there's
somebody that will cut you off and cause an accident if you're not paying attention. Stay on your toes,
relax, and enjoy your vacation this holiday season.

                                        Tips For Booking Your Holiday Travel
                                                       By Alex J Smith



 Holiday season is in the air. We could already breathe in and feel it. Everybody wishes to have a
break, unwind and have a vacation from the exhausting everyday activities and chores of work. Truly,
we deserve to have a time out.

Make this holiday season different from what you have before. Why not take a travel?

Many people say that it is really expensive and it will really cost a lot to have a travel. May it be a land,
water or air holiday travel; surely it will have a cost. Nowadays, there are plenty of ways to have a
vacation you dream and crave of having at a cheap cost.

Here are some of the tips:

Early birds catch the early worm! Book your trips early. Spare some time to call your travel company or
agency. The more early you booked your holiday travel, the greater amount you will save. Consider
that the demands for travel and flights are greater as the holiday season approaches. Note that travel
companies have a number of flights per month. They cannot and will not provide a flight just for you.

Another advantage of having early booking is that you will have the opportunity to have great deals and
options.

Set your itinerary. Choose exactly the places that you want to visit. List your itinerary in a piece of
paper and also, do not forget to book and reserve your visit especially if you want to go to museums
etc.

Reserve the hotel where you will spend your days. Do this as soon as you booked your flight.

It is advised that you have your travel agency. Most of these agencies now have promos and discounts
for their customers for the holiday season. Most of them give travel packages that are budget friendly.
Others give freebies and other items for gimmickries to attract customers and tourists. Use this as an
opportunity to save and have cheap deals.

Being flexible is also a key in a more convenient and cheap holiday travel. If you are flexible enough,
you can get into different flights that are available. Make sure that your schedule is open and flexible to
all sorts of situations that may come along. Also, by being flexible you need to be choosy and things
will easily go without minding the hassle.

Booking at the peak of the holiday season should be avoided in order for you to have a cheap travel.

Holiday season is created for us to stop and pause for a while and to appreciate the hardships that we
had in the previous months. This is just once in a lifetime experience; make the most out of your travel.
