It’s the most wonderful time of the year, except when it comes to traveling during the holidays it can sometimes make it feel not so festive. "The holidays are stressful in it in themselves, and when you add on having to travel that just elevates the stress levels," said Jeanette Casselano, a spokesperson for AAA. Millions of people every year will either go by plane, train, or automobile to spend the holidays with their loved ones. "If you’re travelling for the holidays, pack your patience because there’s going to be a lot of people traveling alongside you," Casselano said. And to help you feel more like a cheermeister rather than a Grinch this season, here are some important travel trips from AAA. "If you’re heading to the airport, make sure you’re going early," Casselano said.  "You want to avoid long lines at TSA." And if your travels will be by roadtrip? "Top off the oil, make sure your windshield wiper fluid is full, tire pressure, thread, those are super important," Casselano said.  "And when you’re driving make sure you’re not distracted -- your phones are away, you’re focused on the road." Just remember -- while many things are in your control, Mother Nature can make it quite difficult at times to get from point A to point B. "Make sure your car has an emergency kit," Casselano said.  "So you’ve got water, you’ve got food, you’ve got chargers. Things to help you in the event that you are stranded." By preparing for your trip in advance, having an alternate plan in place in case of weather woes, and checking in with us here at WeatherNation for the latest updates, the forecast looks merry and bright for your holiday travel outlook.
