How to Survive Holiday Weekend Travel

Travel tips for the holiday weekend

In a couple weeks, millions of Americans will hit the open road (or skies) and head to one of their favorite spots to celebrate July 4th with their friends and family. To help you survive the trip, we’ve shared a few tips from Jamie A. for Nature World News below. Safe travels!


Book lodging in advance

Jamie A. says that on holiday weekends you can expect many hotels and rentals to be filled up, so book in advance. Also, rates typically increase on dates closer to the holiday weekend, so don’t wait until the last minute to reserve a room or rental.


Be unusually early

Jamie A. recommends getting to the airport at least 2-3 hours before your flight to get through the long lines and to your gate before takeoff.

Checking Car Tire Pressure

Check tires

If you’re planning on driving, Jamie A. recommends having your tires checked.

Watch Speed Limit When Traveling

Check speed

If you’re driving to your destination, be sure to watch your speed, Jamie A. says. Police will be patrolling highways with heavy traffic, so be cautious and stay within the speed limit to avoid a ticket.


Fully charge all devices and stay connected

Jamie A. says that regardless if you are traveling by car, boat, train or plane, your mobile devices and phones should be fully charged and connected in case of an emergency.
