DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Planning a road trip or a flight to your destination for the holiday season? AAA has some tips for holiday travel plans.

According to Kara Hitchens with AAA, the planning starts far before you hit the road. For those taking to the skies, she said prices of flights will likely only go upwards from here, so if you haven’t bought your tickets yet, the time is now!

She suggested downloading the airline’s app, as it will give you the quickest updates to notify you of any changes for your flight. Additionally, get a tracker for your luggage in case your suitcase gets separated from you on a connecting flight.

For families and individuals traveling by car, Kara said to get your car checked out before you start traveling. She suggested getting an app to check the lowest gas prices around your area to save money.

Additionally, she said to ensure that you have a roadside emergency kit. She mentioned gloves, a hat, and a blanket for warmth. She said to bring jumper cables and kitty litter to assist in getting out of any snowy ditch.
