Wherever you’re heading this holiday, and whether you travel by plane, train, bus, or car, Allianz Global Assistance offers with the report these tips for holiday travel:

  1. Before flying or taking the train, type your airline, rail and/or hotel confirmation numbers in your phone.
  2. Pack only a carry-on to save space in the car or save time of not having to wait for a checked bag.
  3. The day before traveling by car, pack the car and fill your gas tank that way you’ll be sure to have no delays when leaving the next day.
  4. As always, allow plenty of time, especially if you are traveling on Thanksgiving Eve.
  5. If you can travel on Thanksgiving Day, it’s usually less stressful, cheaper and the crowds tend to be less at airports and train or bus stations.
  6. Thanksgiving week can also present some amazing international airfares, since many Americans travel domestically. Hello last minute trip to Europe!


“As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, we strongly suggest buying travel insurance at the same time travelers book their trips,” said Joe Mason, chief marketing officer at Allianz Global Assistance USA. “Travelers may be refunded if they have to cancel their trip for a reason covered by their travel insurance policy. And while Thanksgiving is a popular time for families, Allianz’s classic policy provides great benefits since kids are covered for free and parents don’t pay extra for children 17 years old or younger.“
