Take Flight with These Thanksgiving Travel Tips

National  + Weekender  | 

Thanksgiving is around the corner, and that means people are gearing up their travel plans to spend the indulgent holiday with family and friends around the country.

If you’re finalizing your flight plans, here are a few useful tips to save time, money, and stress on your journey:

1. Don’t Procrastinate Booking: According to Hopper, prices tend to increase $10 a day between now and the big day, so if you know where you’re headed, book immediately
2. Price Airplane Seats Together and Apart: Airlines price seats differently, and if you’re searching for a pair, the seats may be located in a more expensive row. Try price seats apart if you’re okay sitting solo.
3. Flexible Flying Dates: If you can, fly on Thanksgiving Day, since demand is lower, prices will be lower, too. Given flexibility, avoid returning on Sunday, November 26. Hopper says you can save $161 by flying on Wednesday, November 29 instead.
4. Pick Big Airports: Despite busier crowds, the larger airports may offer less expensive flights because of the increased demand and competition. It also means more direct flights. Less layovers, less hassle!
5. Keep Calm, (Travel with) Carry On: Avoid overpacking (easier said than done), but try to fly with only a carry-on, skip the baggage line and fee. Or, fly Southwest, the only major airline that offers two free checked luggage.
