Christmas Season Travel Planning

Travel PlanningThe airports and the highways will soon be clogged with eager travelers hoping to spend the Christmas holiday with loved ones and families or to see a part of the world they haven’t seen before.

Although rest and relaxation await us all, holiday travel is a major source of stress. If you are fortunate to have a working relationship with a travel professional, then he/she will be handling your travel arrangements with little to no effort on your part. However, If you prefer the do-it-yourself route, then the process itself can get overwhelming. You may find yourself asking questions such as ‘Who do I trust?,’ ‘Are there any hidden fees?,’ ‘How do I know I am getting the best possible price?,’ ‘What’s on sale?,’ ‘What if I change my mind?,’ ‘How will I get there?,’ and ‘Where is the nearest bus to the airport?’

Travel during the Christmas season in some parts of the United States can be difficult given the unpredictable weather that often includes heavy snow and ice. Every year, hundreds of travelers spend their holidays stranded in a far-away airport or iced-over roads. How do you plan for these scenarios? If Plan A failed, what would be your Plan B? Given the load of stress involved, is taking time off during the holidays worth it?

Even if you do not travel during the Christmas season, you are likely going to request some time off from work commitments.

How do you spend time off, whether it be for the holidays or just any random day?  Allowing time for proper rest and relaxation is essential to your well-being.  Hiring someone to run your errands or other time-consuming tasks is a bonus.  The benefits, both mentally and physically, are numerous.  Family and friends love to have your full attention.

If you are able to take a day or a week off this Christmas season, turn off the email and electronics and fully take a vacation.  You will return home a recharged, refreshed, and renewed person!
