Aside from Christmas and New Year's week, Thanksgiving is the busiest holiday for travel (busier than Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day). In 2019, CNN reported record-setting air travel plans for turkey day, which were expected to increase year-over-year. For those who plan to spend time with loved ones away from home, this isn't great news. When you take time away from the daily grind to relax and feast with the people you care about, the last things you want to deal with are inflated fares, packed airports, and delays. Unfortunately, if you plan to travel during the busiest time of year, this is precisely what you will get. Luckily, Thanksgiving travel is not all doom and gloom. Here's how you can make the most of your holiday travel this year.
