With the holiday season set to start, we thought it would be a good idea to pass along a few travel tips.

First of all, always know the weather forecast. Knowing, or at least having an idea of what the weather is going to do will go a long way towards planning your trip.

If you plan on driving this holiday season, knowing the road conditions is going to help you a lot. The Colorado trip planner will help you figure out the best route to where you are going. It will tell you of road closures as well as how long your trip should take you so you can let those you're going to visit know when to expect you. You can also stay in contact with AAA and keep yourself safe.

If you plan on flying, knowing what to expect at the airport is going to be of paramount importance, and DIA keeps you informed of all flights. Checking in with the Grand Junction Regional Airport will be your first step if you're flying out of Grand Junction.

And finally, make sure you have everything you need to travel. If in your car, have blankets, water and plenty of gas in your tank. And know your tires.

No matter how you plan to travel this holiday season, please take your time and get there safely.
