Plenty of hotels and online travel agencies are dishing out holiday discounts for end-of-year getaways, whether you still need a spot to put up your cousin or you’re trying to avoid family altogether.

There are sales both close to home and around the globe, as international destinations continue to trend for holiday travelers looking to avoid heated dinner table conversations about the state of American politics — or who are simply ready to splurge on their first getaway in years. Of course, if you just can't wait that long and need to get away this weekend, these deals cover last-minute adventures, too. 

We’ve rounded up the best holiday travel deals, from rental car discounts to cheap hotels, plus other airport hacks for saving time and money — so you can spend more of your energy this month being merry and bright.

Stitch Fix

If you’ve ever arrived at an airport and discovered your luggage had been lost in transit, you know it’s not a feeling you want to feel again. If (knock on wood) that happens to you this holiday season, one company wants to come to the rescue. Stitch Fix, known for its personalized boxes of clothing and accessories, is now offering Travel Style Insurance (whether you’re a member or not).

The company will send a limited number of $500 promo codes or free expedited boxes of clothes to folks whose luggage goes missing. To apply, send a copy of your lost baggage form to Travel-Style-Insurance@stitchfix.com through December.

CLEAR Plus

Did you know there's a way to cut to the front of the airport security line? Right now, Kayak is offering a free three-month trial of the CLEAR Plus membership, which is “a faster way to verify your identity so you don’t have to wait in crowded lines to have your ID checked,” according to the website. (It’s different from TSA PreCheck, which “expedites the physical screening process,” the team adds.)

"Members use CLEAR's network of dedicated lanes to verify their identity with their eyes or fingers, replacing the need to take out their wallet and driver's license," the team explained in a recent press release announcing a partnership with Boise Airport. Nab the trial for the holiday season; the annual fee is $189.
