Travel Tips

Here's some help navigating the crowds like a pro.

Weather: To avoid travel delays when the weather is frightful take non-stop flights when you're able (they're delightful!)

Travel Days: The holidays are some of the busiest travel days at the airport; the Sunday after Thanksgiving is consistently ranked as the busiest travel day of the year. Avoid the busiest days by traveling on the actual holidays.

Start Early: Get an early start to avoid the heaviest traffic. Leaving before noon usually means less congestion on the road.

Holiday Travel Hacks

Scheduled Rides: Have an early morning flight? Schedule your Lyft ride in advance with Scheduled Rides! You can sleep soundly knowing that your driver will be ready to get you to your destination, no matter the time. 

Lyft Plus: Need extra space? Request a Lyft Plus to make room for all of your luggage and passengers. A Lyft Plus vehicle will pair you up with a larger vehicle that can fit up to six riders.

Lyft Lux: Want to travel in style? Lyft Lux (in select markets) is there when you need it, where you need it with a nicer ride with only top-of-the-line vehicles.
