- Learn about the country you’re visiting – it is always best to come prepared at all times and all circumstances. Therefore, you should study about the city or country you’re visiting including the weather, some strict policies, prices of hotels and of course, the places you should (and should not) visit.
- Book your flight early – avoid any airport drama by making sure to book your flight early and arriving on time for your flight. Flights are mostly fully booked for the holidays so you do not want to miss your flights or else, you might end up celebrating Christmas in the air or worst, in an airport.
