Stay safe and relaxed when traveling for the holidays!
The holidays are here! Spending time with friends and family this holiday season, sometimes requires a bit of travel! Stay safe and relaxed during holiday travel with these holiday travel safety tips.
Give yourself plenty of travel time.
During the holidays it seems as if everyone is traveling! When planning your holiday travel allow plenty of travel time to get to and from your destination. Additionally, winter weather creates added delays. Be prepared for any traffic delays, road closures, or canceled flights, and leave early!
With tight car space and crowded airports, traveling light will make your life easier. You can skip the hassle of the baggage claim at the airport and carry your luggage onboard the plane. Just remember that TSA restrictions prevent you from bringing fluids or gels over 3oz. through security.
Secure your home.
Going out of town increases your risk of experiencing a home burglary. Make sure to set your porch light and a lamp or two inside on a timer to make it seem like you never left. Burglars will be less likely to break and enter if they think someone is home. Also, make sure to take care of your mail and newspapers while you’re away. Ask a trusted friend or neighbor to pick them up or call to hold the service until you return.
The holiday season is also the beginning of peak flu season! Holiday travel means you’ll have contact with lots of people. Make sure to keep your distance from sick people and keep lots of hand sanitizer with you. Wash your hands frequently! Hand hygiene is your best defense against germs!
