Things to Know About Holiday Travel

Must read

If you are looking to go on a holiday, there are a few things that you should know. For one, COVID-19 travel restrictions will have a major impact on your plans. Another thing is that roads will be congested, and last-minute deals are essentially nonexistent.

For a start, the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport saw a 4.5 million passenger pass through in 2021, a sizable jump from the 3.5 million passengers who passed through its halls of commerce during the same time period in 2014. As with any other industry, airline travel is a good, bad, and ugly. Its not all doom and gloom, though, as the airport is on the rise, and with more than a dozen new hotel and restaurant openings on the horizon, the travel industry is looking to the future as the sands of time beckon. In fact, the airport has been a harbinger of the best of the betters since its inception, as airlines from around the world flock to the Alaskan desert in search of cheap flights, hot deals and last minute fares. The scalability of the airline industry has been a boon for the area’s hotels and restaurants, who in turn have boosted room rates to the stratosphere.

If you plan to travel during the holiday season, be prepared to experience traffic congestion. This is expected to be one of the busiest travel periods in the past two decades. Infix is predicting major congestion in the major metro areas of Los Angeles, New York and Houston.

The best way to avoid traffic is to schedule your trip early. Travelers should avoid traveling between 4pm and 8pm on weekends.

Travelers should also be careful of road closures. During this time, some roads will remain closed for construction. Also, drivers should be alert for work equipment.

Congestion can cause road rage. It can be a source of mechanical failures, overheating of vehicles during the summer and slippery surfaces.

AAA says the holidays will be very busy. The agency predicts that more than 49 million Americans will take a holiday road trip. That number is more than three million more than last year.

Drivers should keep in mind that gas prices will be higher this year. Prices are 38 cents higher than the same time last year.
