Holiday Travel, Huh?, Butterball Turkey Talk Line

6:15- Holiday Travel is more expensive this year. Well, you could opt to NOT go over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house but we know that's not an option. Ouch.
If you haven’t booked your holiday travel yet, you may want to call your family and apologize in advance for your absence. Flight prices for Thanksgiving travel are up more than 9% this year, with Christmas fares trailing only slightly behind at 7.3%. So if you’re waiting on last-minute deals, don’t get your hopes up- even those responsible folks who booked well in advance probably paid through the nose. If staying put isn’t an option, travel experts advise avoiding flying on the Sunday after Thanksgiving (December 1) and the Sunday after Christmas (January 5)- since those are the days most people want to or have to travel, fares will be especially steep
