TORONTO, Dec. 16 /CNW/ - Whether flying to a sunny southern destination
or driving out of town to visit family, CAA South Central Ontario (CAA
SCO) wants you to have a stress-free holiday vacation. And being
prepared is the best way to avoid any kind of holiday headache.
"Stricter travel regulations for out of country adventures, winter
weather and overall increased levels of stress this time of year need
to be considered and planned for if you and your family are taking any
type of vacation," said Meg Murgatroyd, director of product development
with CAA travel.
"We want all holiday travellers, including our members, to be safe and
enjoy their vacations, and the best way to do that is to let a travel
expert, like ours at CAA, help them plan for every possible scenario,"
CAA SCO recommends these tips for winter holiday travel:
When traveling by air:
Pack light to avoid extra luggage fees
Pack fragile gifts — unwrapped and liquid free — in your carry on
Ensure your passport is valid
Stay in the know with CAAs eTravel advisories
Secure appropriate family travel and medical insurance
When traveling by car:
Ensure you have a clearly planned route with alternative roads
Check all fluids and tire pressure on your car
Plan in-car activities like cards, DVDs or music to occupy kids
Pack an emergency roadside kit including a fully charged cell phone
Popular CAA holiday travel destinations for sun seekers include the
Caribbean, Florida and Mexico.
