Thinking about squeezing in a Labor Day weekend road trip? It's nice to end the summer with a relaxing vacation before the kids head back to school, however, Labor Day weekend is known for its horrendous highway traffic. But don't fret—we've got you covered! Here's a list of ways you can avoid the headache and hassle of Labor Day travel.

1. Choose a less popular area. Lots of people will be visiting the popular summer spots. But you can have just as much fun somewhere else, with less of a crowd. Make sure to book your hotel on Tingo, and if the price of your reservation goes down, you'll automatically be refunded the difference.

2. Prepare your vehicle. Before you leave for your trip, inspect your vehicle and take care of any necessary maintenance. Make sure you leave with a full tank of gas and a car emergency kit, just in case something happens along the way.
