The weather is changing, decorations are being hung, and events with family and friends are happening by the dozens. It’s hard to believe it, but the holiday season is here again! That means that peak travel season is also upon us. If you want to travel like a pro and have a great experience on your next long-distance motorcoach journey, follow these tips:
Pack Light: Send gifts in the mail instead of trying to pack them all with you and try to pare down your wardrobe options. We know it’s easy to feel like you need 15 shirts for a seven-day trip, but trust us on this one, you don’t! The lighter you pack, the easier it will be to hop on the bus, make transfers, and keep track of all of your stuff. This will make for a much calmer and much more enjoyable trip.
Shop Around for Deals: Traveling during the holidays can be expensive, especially for a group. That’s where busrates.com comes in! We help you compare pricing, amenities, and more so you can get the best bang for your buck with reputable companies.
Avoid Peak Travel Days: Days like the Wednesday right before Thanksgiving are going to be ultra busy and extra expensive. Avoid the rush and book “off days” that will maximize your buying power and have smaller crowds.
Bring Comfort Items: Neck pillows, light blankets, and wardrobe layers are all great things to bring in your personal item. They’ll keep you warm, comfortable, and travel nap ready!
Bring Entertainment: Tablets, phones, and books will help to pass the time on your long journey. Many buses today even offer optional wifi and streaming options so bringing something that can connect to the Internet will give you an almost endless amount of entertainment options to enjoy.
Traveling during the holidays can be stressful, but it’s worth it if it means being with family and friends. Use our tips to decrease stress and increase your holiday spirit!
