Plan for a great March Break getaway
(NC)—Delayed flights, restless kids, lost luggage – family vacations aren't always stress-free. As a travel enthusiast, Stephen Menon, associate vice president, credit cards at TD Canada Trust says planning ahead for your March Break getaway can help you manage potential travel hiccups and let you focus on having fun.
• Book an early flight to avoid rush hour traffic and long lines at check-in. As delays tend to happen as the day goes on, booking an early flight limits the chance of getting stuck at the airport and missing well-deserved vacation time.
• Make sure your family is protected while on vacation. Look for a travel rewards credit card that offers complementary trip cancellation insurance, emergency travel assistance services and even travel medical insurance.
• Don't miss out on a day of vacation just because your luggage was lost. Pack a change of clothes and some essentials for your family in your carry-on. A good travel rewards card will offer complementary lost and delayed baggage insurance.
• When booking your hotel, make sure to confirm whether the room can accommodate your entire family or if you will need to book an additional room or cot to avoid unexpected expenses upon arrival.
