CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - AAA predicts 46 million Americans will go somewhere this Thanksgiving week.

So what do you need to know before heading out? Agents at 1st Class Travel in Cape Girardeau offered some advice.

For drivers:
  • Leave early. Avoiding peak travel periods like Wednesday afternoon could save time and frustration in the end.
  • An engine break down could spell disaster for any trip. Make sure your vehicle is running properly before heading out.
  • Experts want to remind people phone GPS may not always point you in the right direction. Having a route planned ahead of time and a headache later.
For air travelers:
  • Leave extra time. It will probably take more time to get through security with the influx of travelers.
  • FAA guidelines for what is allowed on board apply to Thanksgiving dishes as well, including liquid limits.
  • Go into it with the mindset it is going to be busy and prepare for delays
