There are a record 30 million people traveling to friends’ and relatives’ houses across the country this year. If you’re flying into South Florida this Thanksgiving here are some tips on how to travel better.
If Possible, Avoid Peak Travel Days

Whether you’re using booking sites like Expedia or metasearch sites such as Kayak, comparison shopping has never been easier than it is right now. During holiday travel season, casting the net as wide as possible will help you understand all of your options.
Use Technology That Airports Have Available
The latest self-service developments in online travel can be tremendous time-savers during peak travel times. Whenever possible, print your boarding passes at home or pull up your boarding pass on your smartphone.
