By ALISSA GRICE

weren't familiar with where they were
going, they should consult a travel
"You're able to sit down and ask
(travel agents) as many questions as
you wish," Padgett said.
Travel agents in the Chapel Hill
area are helping students plan their
Christmas traveling itinerary.
Marie Katlett, an agent at Small
World Travel Agency of Chapel Hill
Inc. on East Franklin Street, said the
Christmas season is not as bad as
Thanksgiving because students have

booked flights yet, there is hope, but
they will probably have to pay higher
"All airlines raise their Super Saver
rates from $20 to $50 over Christmas,
except weVe noticed that Piedmont
has kept to their regular prices,"

Katlett said that making travel
arrangements is easier this holiday.
In the past, customers made reser
vations 30 days in advance but paid
for the tickets a couple of days before

you have to buy them within 24
hours, so that has helped us," she said.
"Before, people would change reser

counselor at Viking Travel Service at

"The New York-Boston market is
heavy," Keichline said. "IVe done a
lot of bookings to L.A. and San

"Also, people waste a lot of time
calling each individual airline when
they could come to us and get
information on all airlines and all
availability and the lowest fares
available with no service charge,"
Barbara Kiser, office manager of
Continental Travel agency on East
Franklin Street, said that prices of
flights vary from day to day.
"What airlines try to do is make
prices lower on days that people don't

fly on those less-traveled days," Kiser

Travel agents say students
"Make sure, when possible, that
you get your seating assignment and
boarding passes," she said. "Get to
the airport early; give them (person
nel) at least an hour in advance.
Recheck your schedule with the agent
or airline about two weeks before you
leave, to check for schedule changes."
Travelers are also advised to pack
light and to get a ride to the airport
because parking will be difficult.
Students should have flexibility with
departure and return dates if they do
not already have reservations.
