(NAPSI)—You don’t have to take Santa’s sleigh to enjoy traveling this holiday season—or at any time—if you heed a few hints:

• Pack wisely: Put such essentials as phone chargers, important travel documents, music player, medications and snacks in your carry-on bag.

• Maximize membership rewards: Using something like American Express Membership Rewards points can offset travel costs for a portion or all of a flight, prepaid hotel, rental car, cruise or vacation booking. In addition, unlike many rewards programs, there are no blackout dates.
