Flying with Kids During the Holiday Season

Traveling during the holiday season is never easy: Think traffic jams, winter weather, delayed flights, and crowded airports. When you add squirming kids into the equation, you may be tempted to simply hunker down at home.

Before You Go: 
Make it a family affair! Don't wait until the last minute to get your kids psyched for your holiday journey. If you involve them in the planning process, they're likely to be more invested in the trip.

If You're Driving: 
Beat rush hour. You can't avoid traffic jams caused by accidents or emergency roadwork, but you can plan your trip so you're not in big cities during the morning or evening rush.

If You're Flying: 
Get the luggage lowdown. Find out how many bags you're allowed to carry on and to check, and if there are any weight restrictions.
