Travel expert Mark Murphy gives tips on how to travel with less hassle. Murphy works with travel agents.
He advises to fly out for Thanksgiving by Monday. Extend your holiday as much as possible.
According to Murphy, the average person goes to 22 websites before he makes a travel booking. People can actually hand off these bookings to an agent and get the booking done for them.
Murphy tells Mike and Sheinelle to not worry about the government shutdown affecting air travel because air traffic control is still at full capacity. Murphy says that if the shutdown does drag on for months, then maybe non-essential employees might be affected, but there will be way more issues than that if the shutdown does drag on for months.
Cruises could be another option too. Murphy recommends Homeport Cruising.
