This year has been a year filled with many unforgettable adventures. And with the next fast approaching, we at Downunder Travel want to wish you a happy holiday season! We appreciate your support over the past year. If you’ve spoken with our travel agents about purchasing one of our vacation packages from Canada, thank you!

Since the holidays are in full effect, you probably have some travel plans in the works. If so, we’ve got you covered. Keep reading to learn 3 essential travel tips for the holiday season and vacation packages to avoid the winter!

1. Plan Ahead

Preparation is the key to a smooth holiday trip. Ensure you bring backup chargers, pack enough snacks, map out routes, and obtain the proper travel documentation. Travelling can be complicated and stressful. This packing-wise process is all about saving yourself from unnecessary stress. The better you prepare, the better your ability to manage unanticipated pitfalls.

2. Be Flexible

The unspoken rules of travel are flexibility and patience. And these rules become even more critical during the busy holiday season! When things go awry and frustration ensues, try breathing exercises and practice being calm and patient with the situation (and people). This process will help you become more flexible in the demanding situations that inevitably occur during your travels.

3. Give Yourself Enough Time

Leave (ridiculously) early for your flight. This way, you won’t miss your flight even if an unexpected situation arises! Few things are more stressful than nearly missing your flight. Giving yourself enough time creates a buffer between yourself and life. And especially during the holidays, this is well worth the effort.
