New York, NY (PRWEB) November 13, 2012
With homeowners and travel goers recent battle with Hurricane Sandy RoadFish has released their top tips for traveling during the holidays.
Roadfish’s editor stated, “Many people decide to visit home during the holidays and that means traveling far from home or to areas that have inclement weather. We wanted to put together a list of tips and tricks that would help when dealing with travel during a time when money is tight and travel is the activity many splurge on.”
A few of the tips RoadFish discusses are below:
Travel Insurance: Many airlines do not cover hotel accommodations if a flight is cancelled or delayed due to natural causes. Investing in good trip insurance can help to cover those costs that may have otherwise come out of the traveler’s pocket.
Checking Bags: Provided each traveler does not have more than one large piece of luggage checking bags at the gate provides a higher probability they will get on the right plane. If the plane is rather full attendants may even offer to check bags at no cost to free up room in the overhead compartments.
Security: When going through security be nice to the TSA agents. A smile, hello, and how ya doing go a long way when it comes to getting through without much fuss. Also, be prepared to remove shoes quickly, have computers in a separate bin and liquids visible and in a quart-sized bag.
Car Rentals: Travelers looking to rent a car at their destination should check with their insurance and companies they hold credit cards with to see if they cover rental cars should the driver get in an accident or incur damage to the vehicle. Most credit card companies and car insurance carriers do which means the car insurance at the rental company can be declined.
