Are you planning on making the most of your time off by heading away from home? Here are our top-tips for planning, and surviving, your holiday getaway.
Avoid peak travel datesÂ
As a rule, itâ€™s cheaper to fly on Christmas Day. Most people plan to already be at their destination for the big day, but if youâ€™re looking to save dollars this is a no brainer.
You can snag some great last minute travel deals, but book your â€śmust dosâ€ť early so you’re not heartbroken if they book out.

Plan for unplannedÂ
Donâ€™t book every second of your time before you arrive. Leave space in your schedule for the unplanned secret hideaways that the locals will let you in on.
Itâ€™s the busiest time for travel so they will happen. Just accept it and pack a good book.
Pack an empty suitcaseÂ
Invest in hand sanitizerÂ
Thereâ€™s nothing worse than finally clocking off for the year only to spend your entire holiday with Mr Sniffles.
Being an irate traveller never gets you anywhere faster.
