3 Tips for Last-Minute Plus Size Travel

Vacation in your future? It’s not too late to get a good deal on airline or hotel reservations. And, it’s never too late to do a few things to make your plus size travel adventure super comfortable.

Here’s how:
1. Waiting until a vacation period to book your hotel room can save you as much as $60-$100 a night. Tip: Check out the high-end hotels that usually cater to business executives. They are typically looking for travelers to fill empty rooms during holiday and vacation times (such as in December or July) when business travel slows down. For the best rates, call the hotel directly, not the hotel’s central 800#.
2. Schedule your travel when most people are home celebrating. Tip: Fly on the day of the holiday. On Thanksgiving or Christmas day the rates can be reduced as much as 30-50%…and you’ll have more seat choices (go for an aisle for the most room!) with less chance of having to squish into a crowded airplane.
3. If a car trip is in your travel plans, don’t forget to take your seat belt extender so that you can be comfortable AND safe. Tip: Order a car or airplane seat belt extender from Amazon for quick delivery. Your local car dealer usually has to order seat belt extenders…which could take several weeks. Read More
