Yep, the holidays are almost here. So this week, Pauline Frommer gave tips on preparing for and surviving travel during the busiest time of the year. Join Pauline as she discusses:

  • How to find the cheapest rates and which airlines will give you refunds if prices go lower
  • The benefits and perils of itineraries that require a transfer
  • What you need to pack -- beyond the gift -- if you'll be driving to your holiday destination
  • Burglar-proofing your house before you go

And more.
