10 Brilliant Tips For Traveling This Thanksgiving Weekend


Are you traveling this Thanksgiving weekend? Here are our tips to make your plans go more smoothly and to make this Thanksgiving weekend (or the next one) even better.

Tip 1

Enjoy your family and friends. Cheesy but true. Isn’t this what Thanksgiving is all about?

Tip 2

Start planning for next Thanksgiving. No, I’m not kidding. Many airlines and hotels release their hotel rooms and flights around a year in advance. By booking in advance, you will usually make much better savings than booking last minute. It’s never too early to start making plans.

Book your hotel via our luxury travel concierge. We offer free upgrades, free breakfasts, and free perks at hotels, including the Four Seasons, Park Hyatt, Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, InterContinental, and more at no extra cost.

As an example, if you book into a Four Seasons hotel with us, you will get the following free benefits:

  • Daily full American breakfast for two people per bedroom, served through In-Room Dining or in the hotel restaurant (including buffets)
  • Food and beverage or Spa credit of $100 USD
  • Upgrade of one category, based on availability at time of check-in (excluding signature suites, villas, and private residences)
  • Welcome note at check-in acknowledging you and the amenities that are being extended
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

Tip 3

Take advantage of Black Friday deals so that you can treat your family with something nice at Christmas. Here are some of the best we have come across:

Best Black Friday Hotel Deal (WorldWide): Whatever your plans, if you’re looking for a luxury hotel for next-to-nothing, take a look at the brilliant bargains in our own travel auctions, which start at just £0.99 GBP (or approx $1.28 USD). The worldwide properties in our auction include Aman, Four Seasons, and more…

Best Hotel And Flight Deals (UK only): HeadforPoints always has this covered, so take a read of their current rundown.

Best Toy Deals (Worldwide): It’s not like the old days when you had to go out to the shops. I just bung my gift ideas into Google and search for the cheapest choice. If you have a Fortnite fan in your family, I think we’ve found the ultimate gift. Peely was an icon of 2019 and is surely the greatest gift for a Fortnite fan. I’ve bought two for my boy and his best friend, who spent many hours as these characters over the summer.

Tip 4

It’s never too late to get away. Even if you haven’t booked anything yet, book a night away. I’m going to the Four Seasons Hampshire this weekend on a whim. Why? It forces me to come offline and spend time with my family.

Tip 5 To 10
