Our top holiday packing tips

Don’t let your luggage weigh you down this year! Instead, follow our essential holiday packing tips.

You’ve planned your holiday trip and are ready for the long lines at TSA. Now it’s time to pack your bags. Of course, that’s easier said than done when you need to be ready for family events, weather, and gift-giving. Check out these holiday packing tips for easy travel throughout the busiest time of the year.

Skip Checking Your Luggage

If your luggage is going to get lost, you know it’s going to be on the busiest travel days of the year. You’ll get to your parents’ house with no clothes and the stores are closed and you’ll end up wearing your mom’s old blouse and blazer for Thanksgiving dinner. Then the pictures will haunt you forever. We say don’t risk it. Instead, fit everything into your carry-on and personal item bags. If you’re traveling with your family, don’t forget that each of you gets a carry-on and personal item. So, feel free to scrounge up extra space from your toddler’s bag. It’s the least he can do for you!

Pack Smart

When you’re squeezing everything into your carry-on, you’ll need these holiday packing tips. Try rolling clothes instead of stacking them to save space. Use vacuum-sealed bags to compress bulky items like coats and sweaters. If possible, wear the items that take up the most space on your travel day. Of course, you must observe all TSA rules for what to bring or risk losing it forever.

Ship Gifts to Your Destination

If possible, don’t travel with gifts! They’re unlikely to fit in your carry-on so you’ll have to check them, which takes extra time. Plus, you’ll risk loss or damage in transit. Instead, have gifts shipped to your destination. You can have them gift-wrapped or also have gift wrap and tape shipped to your destination! If you can’t avoid bringing them with you, then definitely don’t wrap them in advance. TSA doesn’t like what it can’t see and may unwrap them to make sure they’re not dangerous. Also, be sure to wrap breakables well to protect them from damage. You don’t want to spend your precious holiday time filing claims at the airport.

Be Ready to Check Your Carry-on at the Gate

You can pretty much guarantee that your plane will be full. And full planes often mean full overhead compartments. When those bins fill up, travelers have to check their carry-ons at the gate. Of course, this always makes everyone freak out because nobody wants to check their precious carry-on. That resistance slows the line down and it’s a whole big thing. Obviously, you don’t want to check that bag, but if you have to, make things easier on everyone by being prepared.

To get ready, keep a smaller bag of essential items easily accessible in your carry-on. In that bag, pack your prescription medications, contacts & glasses, toothbrush and key toiletries, any expensive jewelry, and maybe even a spare pair of socks and underwear. You can just toss that into your personal item bag and surrender your carry-on without a second thought. Don’t be that guy or gal arguing with the flight attendant and slowing everything down.

With a little preparation, you’ll be ready for anything on travel day. For even more packing tips, click here. Happy travels!

Frequently Asked Questions ?

How does PMG get me out of my timeshare contract?

PMG is not a resale, transfer, or donation company. We are consumer advocates—we help to negotiate the release of your timeshare contract obligation. We do not buy, sell, or rent your timeshare. Simply put, we help you to get out of your timeshare contract forever.

How long does the process usually take?

Usually less than 12 months, but it all depends on your situation. Let us help you. Speak to your advisor about the time, and what delays the resorts have put into place to prevent timeshare owners from departing their ownership. If you have a mortgage or past due maintenance fee, the process takes more time.

How much is my timeshare worth?

This is probably going to hurt, but whether you paid $5,000 or $50,000 for your timeshare, the IRS values all timeshares as worthless investments. In addition, that timeshare would have negative value due to the annual maintenance fee bill which compounds year after year. That is until PMG helps you cancel your timeshare.

Can I use your service if I still have a balance owed on my mortgage?

Yes. Whether you bought your timeshare 20 days ago or 20 years ago, PMG has a solution for you and is here to help.

Will my name be off the timeshare?

Yes! Permanently! GUARANTEED!

In addition to getting me out of my timeshare, can you recover the money I’ve already spent on mortgage payments and maintenance fees?

While we are able to recover money in rare cases, beware of any timeshare cancellation company that entices you with the promise of fund recovery. The truth is, the resorts are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken for timeshares.

Are your consumer advocates really “consumer advocates”, or is that just a fancy word for salesperson?

Because most of our clients have had their trust betrayed by timeshare salespeople, we understand how some consumers can become a bit jaded. When you call us for a consultation, that’s exactly what you get, a consultation. At PMG, our job is not to sell you; our job is to help you get out of your timeshare. Which is why we have numerous 5-star reviews and an “A” (excellent) rating from the BCA.

Why should I choose PMG to get me out of my timeshare?

We go above and beyond for our customers by helping to protect you, and have the best success rate in the industry, rated 5-stars by clients. We pride ourselves on providing our customers with the best customer service in the industry. When you contact our company, you speak to a live person, not an automated system or voicemail. We offer a 100% money back guarantee, and we can provide documented proof of our success in helping customers just like you.

What happens after I sign up with you? Will I be apprised of your progress?

At PMG, we pride ourselves on our hands-on, boutique-style customer service, so every new client will work with our expert, experienced team whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. We are always just a phone call away.

How much is your fee?

Not all timeshare experiences are created equal. Some are more complicated than others, and every situation is different. That’s why our trained timeshare elimination consultants will ask you a series of questions designed to determine exactly what needs to be done to terminate your timeshare, how long it will take, and how they can best advocate for you. We will always seek the most cost-effective route for you.

What if I still have more questions?

Canceling a timeshare contract is not a cookie cutter process. With each situation being unique, once you complete the form below an experienced consumer advocate will call you today to discuss your options.
