December is one of the busiest travel months of the year. When you add the normal stresses of travel to the holiday rush, you can feel a lot more manic than merry.

If just thinking about holiday travel makes you tense, take heart. There are some things you can do to minimize the stress.

If you’re flying to your holiday destination:

1. Aim for the middle



Booking flights midweek (on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays) can mean a better price. Traveling midweek means smaller crowds to deal with than on the Saturday or Sunday after the holiday. If you can, book the first flight out on the Monday morning after the holiday.

2. Be an early bird
