How to Save Money on Holiday Travel

We all know that carrying on luggage can save you anywhere from $50 to hundreds of dollars on baggage fees, but where will you put all those gifts? Marco Del Rosario, COO of VacationRenter.com, recommends shipping your gifts directly to your destination, especially if you purchase them online. "Don't waste your money by checking these presents in your bags or lugging them throughout the airport in your carry-on," he told POPSUGAR. "Instead, ship your gifts to your destination ahead of time — wrapped if they offer it. If not, ship wrapping paper as well! Just make sure the folks you're shipping to know not to open the boxes."
