Happy Thanksgiving: 3 Travel Tips

HAPPY THANKSGIVING from Airlines Parking! 

Some people just hop in their car and drive 15 minutes to Grandmas, but many Americans have relatives and friends in other states or part of the world. If you are a part of this elite group and you have to get your travel on Thanksgiving, remember these three tips:

1.     Longer Lines are for your Safety! We all love safety, especially on holidays, right? With the recent terror attacks/threats, TSA and airport security will be heightened, so expect to wait a bit longer. With your expectations already low, your slightly-longer-than-normal security wait won’t seem so bad!
2.    Bad Weather Backup! Bad weather almost always plays a factor in thanksgiving travel. Look up alternate flight routes/other carriers that fly to your same destination, and be prepared to act fast if your flight is delayed for a long period of time and/or cancelled.
3.    Leave Early! We usually recommend arriving at our Detroit Airport Parking facility 2-2.5 hours in advance of when your flight leaves. If you are traveling on Thanksgiving, we suggest leaving 3-3.5 hours of time. After all, sitting at your gate drinking Starbucks is a whole lot better than calling your airline because you missed your flight.

Be safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
