Top holiday travel planning tips

The holidays are just around the corner, so get ready with our holiday travel planning tips.

We can’t deny it any longer. The holidays are coming and it’s time to start holiday travel planning. Although the holidays are a special time to rest and reconnect with family (and eat all the food), holiday travel means crowds, weather, and waiting. With a little holiday travel planning, you can reduce some of the anxiety and focus on the festivities. Check out our best tips below.

Where To Travel

When you’re holiday travel planning, you’re often locked into their destinations. If you’re going to Grandma’s house and Grandma lives in Toledo, then you’re headed to Toledo. Or maybe you’re one of the lucky few who uses their timeshare over the holidays, in which case you have no flexibility. But you do have some control over connecting airports. Since you know you’ll be facing crowds, connect through airports with lots of space, places to eat, sit, and charge your devices. Also connect through airports with good track records for on-time flights. The last thing you want to do is wait around with your kids complaining for hours on end. And don’t forget to give yourself generous connection times. A missed connection this time of year can truly derail your holiday.

If your location is flexible, then it’s time to shop around for that perfect holiday getaway. Find deals using sites like Kayak, Trip Advisor, or Google Flights. You can search rates for flexible dates and flexible destinations to maximize your holiday gift to yourself!

No matter where you’re headed, severe weather may be lurking. You can’t really plan for that, but it’s a good idea to avoid connecting through known weather zones if you can. And if you’re choosing your destination, make it about sunshine rather than snow. However, if you have your heart set on a Christmas ski vacation, then get ready for whatever Mother Nature has in store. Luckily, you’ll already have your coat and boots in your bags!

When To Travel

The holiday season is also the busiest travel season in the United States. So, if you’re traveling this time of year, crowds are unavoidable. However, you can avoid the worst of it if you steer clear of the biggest days. At Thanksgiving, Wednesday is the worst. If it’s an option, consider flying on Thanksgiving. You’ll avoid the crowds and you may even find some big discounts. The same goes for returning on Monday. Take advantage of the airplane Wi-Fi to do your Christmas shopping online while you cruise home. Christmas and New Year’s travelers will face different challenges depending on what day of the week the holidays fall. Try to optimize long-weekends and take some extra time to research fares and dates.

What To Pay

We love great deals on airfare and hotels. And we certainly love travel hacking and optimizing airline rewards. For many holiday travelers, price is a secondary concern to dates and destinations. Still, it’s always a good idea to shop around to find the best deals in holiday travel planning.

However, if you’re planning to cash in on your frequent flyer miles and airline rewards, you may be disappointed. You’ll likely face blackout dates where can’t use your points or miles. (Unless of course, you’re flying Southwest, which has no blackout dates. Just don’t forget to check in!) But if you take advantage of diverse rewards programs, you can find ways to put that money to work. Or, if you have a credit card with flexible points or benefits, use them on holiday travel. However, booking in advance and being flexible about dates and times are the best ways to find deals on airfare when doing your holiday travel planning.

Relieve Yourself of the Unwanted Timeshare Burden

Your information is 100% secure and encrypted. We will never sell or share your information with anyone.

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. If your timeshare is free and clear with no mortgage, then the process may only take 3-9 months.

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, timeshares are loath to give back the money they’ve already taken.

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 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 go above and beyond for our customers by helping you to protect your credit and even repair your credit if needed. 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 is assigned a case manager whose job is to keep you in the loop throughout the entire cancellation process. Your case manager is 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.
