Ease the stress of holiday travel this year by making a list and checking it twice! While you’re at it why not make a list of all the things you’re looking for in homes for sale in LaGrange, GA. DanRic Homes will make checking off that list easy with their attractive, affordable homes built with the latest amenities and modern features. Here are tips to ease your Holiday Travel and for that other list, come take a tour!
Be Flexible It is a luxury to have flexibility this time of year but traveling one or two days off from your plan may save you a bundle and reduce the crowd you’ll be fighting for elbow space. If you can travel during “dead weeks” in between the holidays when prices are significantly lower, you can save time as well as money by savoring a turkey dinner and opening gifts all at once!
Consider Smaller Airports The payoff is likely to be much greater than the extra distance the airport may be from your final destination. Smaller airports generally see fewer delays and fewer people which means less competition when it comes to parking, rental vehicles, nearby hotels and traffic getting in and out.
Book Early Flights, accommodations, and rental cars will sell out quickly in the holiday season. Reserve yours well in advance for the best selection!
Ship Gifts Allow plenty of time for arrival since the holidays can be hectic for delivery services too. If you do not send your gifts ahead, pack collapsible bags to wrap in once you arrive. Nicely packaged gifts will not travel well by air and the bright colors & bows seen through the windows of your car could be bait for holiday mischief.
The Extras Be sure you’re traveling with a car charger for your phone, snacks and extra batteries for the portable DVD player or game system. Don’t forget to take your photos of the homes for sale in LaGrange, GA you’ve been touring. Your family and friends will love being a part of your search for a new home!
Think Ahead Be prepared for inclement weather if you’re traveling by car. Take your car in for a tune-up, store jumper cables and blankets in your trunk and don’t remove the spare tire to make room for luggage. If you’re traveling by air, check the TSA luggage restrictions, check-in online or early, allow for extra time in traveling to and from the airport as well as making it through security check points.
Secure Your Home There are ready-to-move-in homes for sale in LaGrange, GA but let’s not leave yours looking vacant! Leave your home with that lived-in look by leaving on a light or two and having a neighbor collect your mail. You may not want to broadcast on your answering machine or facebook wall that you’ll be out of town for a few days.
Pass the Potatoes Whether you’re going home for the holidays or taking a merry vacation, be sure to include this in your list and enjoy spending time with those you love!
