Are you one of the 46.3 million Americans AAA says will take a road or plane trip for Thanksgiving?
You should already know to buckle up and drive safely, and if you're flying somewhere, you probably don't need to be told to get to the airport well ahead of your flight time.
Tossing those traditional tip lists aside, we challenged three experts to give us their best offbeat advice for Thanksgiving travelers. Here's what they shared:
• No carry-on cranberry sauce
Seems obvious, but Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said TSA officers encounter many fliers this time of year who try to carry on all kinds of holiday food: cranberry sauce, gravy and creamy dips, to name a few.
"The rule of thumb is if you can spill it, spread it, smear it, squeeze it, spray it, pump it, or pour it, that would be defined as a liquid, gel or aerosol," she said.According to TSA rules, liquids/gels/aerosols must be in containers that are 3.4 ounces or less if you want to bring them in your carry-on bag, she said. Those goodies are likely in larger containers and are required to be in checked luggage, she said.
Passengers are allowed to bring cakes and pies to their seats, but be prepared for your dessert to be subjected to extra screening for explosives. Farbstein assures the additional measures won't harm your pie, though.
• First road trip in a new car? Make sure it has a spare tire
If you're driving a 2014 model, there's a good chance it didn't come with a spare tire, said AAA New York spokesman Robert Sinclair.
Under pressure to meet fuel efficiency requirements, car manufacturers are ditching spares in new cars, unless you ask for them and pay extra. And just because you are driving a new car, doesn't mean you can't get a flat.
"If you bought a new car recently and you haven't had an opportunity to check, make sure it has a spare," Sinclair said. "And if it doesn't, go buy it."
• Be a clever driver
This means being willing to wake up before dawn so you can hit the road before everyone else, said Christopher Elliott, author of "How to Be the World's Smartest Traveler (and Save Time, Money, and Hassle)."
"Everyone kind of reflexively gets on the road the Wednesday morning before Thanksgiving, and, of course, the highway is a parking lot," he said. "I like to look at how the professionals do it — the truck drivers. You will see them on the road at the times of day when most drivers aren't."
Also, if you're driving to a new place for the first time, make sure you are prepared with directions from more than one source. Elliott said the Apple smartphone's navigator, Siri, is often wrong. "Don't trust Siri," he said.
Before you leave, consult Google maps, MapQuest and/or a GPS device to make sure the directions are similar.
And when all else fails, you can usually count on an old-fashioned paper map, he said.
