14 winter travel tips for flights and road trips

Successful winter travel is all about successfully navigating the weather.

In winter, most travelers hope to get to and from their destinations with minimum trouble and maximum enjoyment — and, most importantly, to always arrive safe and sound, no matter what sort of snow, ice, sleet, or freezing rain you may encounter.

The American Automobile Association predicts record-breaking numbers on the road and in the air this year. A total of 55.3 million travelers are expected to travel from Wednesday, Nov. 27, through Sunday, Dec. 1 by car, plane, train, bus and cruise ship. That makes for a 1.6 million-person increase from last year, the second-highest since AAA began recording data in 2000.

To that end, SmarterTravel.com has put together winter travel tips and tactics to help you avoid spending the season stuck in airports or on roadsides.
