Everyone loves the holidays, but hardly anyone loves the travel problems that we encounter.
Bad weather, delays, higher prices, and long lines are the curse of the holiday traveler. Today, we’re going to talk about the worst days to travel. Hopefully, we can help alleviate some stress by helping you figure out which days to avoid.
The day before Thanksgiving is notorious for flight delays. If you want to make it home for Thanksgiving, try your best to schedule your flight a few days before so you can avoid the high-traffic traveling.
Christmas is one of the busiest times of year, and many times bad weather, flight cancellations, and snowstorms negatively impact travel routes. While being with family is important, so is safety. If you’re traveling around Christmas time, try to fly out a few days before the holiday and preferably during a time where the weather is calm.
New Year’s Eve is another day for lots of people flying and riding to see loved ones. Airlines are particularly affected by the high amount of travelers. New Year’s Eve is also a big night for drunk drivers. If you have to be out driving, make sure you are aware and observant of others that share the roads.
Other bad travel days include Fridays during the summer, Memorial Day, spring break, the Fourth of July, Labor Day, Easter, and Mardi Gras.
