NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Nov 23, 2016) - Traveling during the most wonderful time of the year can be fun and festive if you know how to travel smart. 

Protect Your Trip with travel insurance
You've invested a lot of time, energy and money into your trip. Protect that investment with travel insurance. A small investment that can protect big ticket travel purchases with coverage and assistance for things like trip cancellations, lost or stolen luggage, and even illness of an immediate family member. It's available for any vacation and trip type and Allianz Travel Insurance offers a plan finder to find a plan that is right for your trip.

Don't Deal with Hangry Travelers
Prepare snack bags ahead of time with healthy food items and high protein options to avoid grumbly bellies. Choices like Premier Protein 30 gram Bars not only pack easily but give everyone energy to their own snack bags lets you focus on the tasks at hand and keeps everyone happily fed. Premier Protein bars boast 30g of protein and now have no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors and in my opinion, no weird after-taste.
