Traveling during the holidays can trigger stress and anxiety but it doesn’t have to be that way, especially if you are planning on heading to the island of Maui this Thanksgiving or Christmas.

You have already made the smart decision to head for warmer weather, so now all you have to do is figure out how to get there in one piece. Well, we have a few tips for traveling to Maui during the holidays that will get you on the plane to Hawaii with ease!

Give Yourself Enough Time
Why does it always seem during the holidays you never have enough time? With packing, getting together an itinerary, planning for connections and a ride to the airport, time can get a little tight during this time of the year. So make sure you layout enough time to do all the things you have to before heading out the door to the airport.

Travel Early or Late in the Day
Here’s a tip that will help save you some hassle. Typically airports will be less congested during times when most people would prefer to be at home sleeping. So plan your trip to head out at night or early in the morning and you may be happy with the results as delays are far less likely.

Pack Light
You are heading to Hawaii, do you really need that winter coat and ugg boots? Probably not. We know how hard it is to prepare for a long journey but take it easy on yourself and your back by packing as light as possible. Make a list to ensure you are only bringing the necessities and leave any of the items you can purchase on the island at home.

Check Your Airports
This is a great move for those of you who are looking to save an extra penny. Checking smaller airports for travel during the holidays can pay off big time, including better deals on rental cars, parking, and overnight stays at nearby hotels.

Do your Research
Planning ahead always pays off so do your research and make sure that you’re not traveling during peak travel days. A website like Google Flights can monitor airline prices for you and you can grab the tickets when the cost works for your budget. And have fun!
