Stamford, CT (PRWEB) December 29, 2005
Travel reservations during the holidays can be trying. For some, the thought of crowded airports, packed flights, and unpredictable weather delays may seem like motivation to cancel your holiday travel reservations and stay home. Those concerns can be easily addressed, assures DealPass, so you can comfortably jet through the skies and spend the holidays with your family and friends.
DealPass, a popular shopping portal, provides consumers easy access to savings on virtually all their spending needs, including travel reservations.
DealPass Travel Reservations* offers great deals on hotels, vacation and cruise packages, car rentals, last-minute trips, show tickets and popular attractions.** Even at the eleventh hour before the busiest travel season of the year, terrific travel deals can be found and only take moments to book online at DealPass.
Much more than a powerful booking engine, visitors to DealPass Travel Reservations can also use the site’s handy travel tools -- such as flight trackers, currency converters, and travel guides -- so that planning their trip is fun, easy, and economical.
Before holiday travelers take to the skyways, DealPass Travel Reservations offers these pointers that will smooth out the wrinkles of even the busiest travel days:
-- Make your air travel reservations for early or late in the day. There tend to be less flight delays and backups early in the day. Later in the day, the airport crowds (and lines) start to thin out.
-- Be prepared to get up and go. Organize your travel gear and pack the night before your flight. Remember to gas up the night before, as well. Time lost getting out the door and to the airport can easily cause a stressful chain reaction of delays throughout your travel day.
-- But before you head out the door, check your flight status online at DealPass Travel Reservations. If your flight is delayed, you may as well relax at home rather than hang out at the airport.
-- Allow plenty of time to get to your departure gate. Most passengers miss flights due to ground delays such as traffic jams, filled parking lots, and long security lines.
-- Travel light. Full flights mean stuffed overhead bins. Ship your gifts to your destination and check your luggage. Many airports offer curbside check-in, which is usually quicker to get through than the full-service check-in lines inside.
-- But don’t travel too light. Keep your medications and other essential items with you at all times. And remember to bring along reading material, a crossword puzzle, or other diversion. Snacks are another critical item for your carry-on. While airport shops offer all these items, they will cost considerably more.
-- If you have a connecting flight, plan for the worst. Have a contingency plan in place just in case you find yourself stranded partway to your destination. Pack a change of clothes and basic toiletries in your carry-on. Stake out possible hotels where you can get last minute travel reservations or touch base with people you know who live at your connecting city.
And above all else, stress-free air travel begins with your state of mind. You’ll be better equipped to handle delays or other unanticipated travel problems if you remain calm. Harried airport staff are much more inclined to go out of their way to assist courteous passengers who retain their sense of humor.
Remember, family and friends eagerly await your arrival to celebrate the holidays — a trip well-worth your travel reservations.
