Take the nuissance out of holiday travel with our top 5 tips:

Book all flights when it’s less hectic. The best days to fly are 2 days before and after Christmas and New Year’s.

Check in early. Domestic travelers should be at the airport 2 hours before departure and international travelers should arrive 3 hours early.

Choose a smaller airport. They may have cheaper flights and shorter lines.

Do not pack wrapped gifts. They may be checked for security reasons. Instead pack wrapping paper, boxes or bags, or ship gifts beforehand.

Keep your driver’s license or passport handy until you board the plane.
