Preparing for Thanksgiving Travel 2022

Post by : Admin on Nov 10,2022

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, now is the time you should prepare yourself for the crowded and chaotic journey to your holiday weekend destination. 

Roughly 70% of Americans have plans to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday. You can expect to see more travelers on the road and in the skies as people make up for missed holidays during the pandemic. For most of these holiday travelers, it is their first time traveling since the pandemic began. Following a summer of major travel headaches, delays, and cancellations, this holiday season will likely deliver the same. We recommend you plan now! Airlines are pretty much sold out. Car services are seeing heavy demand for airport service.

The Sunday before Thanksgiving is expected to be the busiest traveling day with an estimated 3.3 million people on the move that day. The Sunday after Thanksgiving will see 3.4 million people returning home. Travelers should prepare themselves for long lines and potential delays. You can avoid the hassle of searching for airport parking by arriving in style and practicality. Whether you need a sedan for two, an SUV for the family or a Sprinter van for a large group, getting dropped off at the curb and checking your luggage with a curbside skycap will make your arrival at the airport a breeze. When you come, skip the dreaded wait for an Uber or Lyft and meet your chauffeur in baggage claim for luggage assistance. 

Wondering which airports are the busiest? Atlanta (ATL), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and Denver (DEN) are predicted to be the busiest airports during the entire week.

Here are a few tips to prepare yourself for flight disruptions over Thanksgiving:

  • Book the first flight out of the day if you can. You’re less likely to be impacted by delays from earlier in the day.
  • Arrive to the airport early, TSA lines will be long. 
  • Check the weather when making travel plans, especially cold destinations that could be impacted by snow or ice.
  • Consider adding a day to your travel plans so you have time to get to your destination.
