BECKLEY, W.Va (WVNS) — Travel experts say for Mountaineer and Herd fans flying out to their respective bowl games, make sure to book with reputable and trustworthy travel vendors – whether it would be through a travel agent or directly with an airline. In addition, they recommend paying with a credit card as identity theft protection so you can deny a charge if it is fraudulent. Most of all, Autumn Bess of AAA in Beckley says the best traveller is an informed traveller.
“Make sure that you are doing your research,” Bess said. “You want to make sure that you are booking with a reputable company and that you understand the full terms and conditions of the package, such as their cancellation policy.”
While referring to gas prices being at historic lows, experts advise drivers to plan their routes in advance, be aware of changing weather conditions, and completely inspect their vehicles.
