What you need to know about going home for t holidays later, can splurge or swap out of all of thatnforgettable feast without goinbroke. You're watching consumer >> This year 113 million travelers are expected to hit the road and the skies for holiday trips. That means busier airports and higher travel costs due to inflation. Here to help us navigate the season ahead is Alicia precautions, the associate editorial director at Travel and Leisure Magazine. Alicia, Welcome. Thank you for being here. Thank you for adding that. Everyone wants to know what are your top tips to make travel this holiday season as stress? Free as possible? >> Yes. So these days, new travel regulations and
short-staffed airports can really lead to long lines when checking bags are going through airport security. So I always say it's best to err on the side of caution and arrive at the airport early. And, you know, getting to the airport, at least 2 hours in advance is always a good idea. But that's especially true during the holiday season to avoid any added stress. A similarly, if you're driving to see loved
ones, you know, you'll want to allot extra travel time for traffic apps like Waze can be incredibly useful tools for gauging traffic conditions. I'm not only before you hit the road, but once you're driving. So definitely recommend downloading that as well. Now, if you haven't already booked your flight com, I do recommend opting for an early morning flight on as well as a direct flight. This will help
you avoid any delays with layovers. And in the event that your flight does get canceled, there will be hopefully plenty of options for the U for you to rebook on throughout the day. >> A couple of questions. We're all going to be together. So any tips for dealing with crowds specifically and then what happens if your flight is delayed or canceled? Walk me through the process of getting your money back.
>> Sure. So if you are truly looking to escape those crowds this holiday season, it pays to be flexible with your travel date. So, you know, looking to arrive a day or 2 earlier and returning a day early early can really help you save money as well as avoid those crowds and don't want to peak days. Exactly. You might also want to opt for a smaller airport that's nearby rather than a hub. So, you know, for example,
fly into Long Beach Airport instead of LA ad, these smaller airports tend to have less demand. So they offer lower prices and fewer crowds. But either way, if you're flying, download the my TSA app which offers information on airport security wait times. So, you know, you can monitor
for the hubs that you'll be flying and then plan accordingly. What people need to know when their flight is delayed or canceled. Yeah, great question. So, you know, hopefully all runs smoothly. However, first and foremost, you'll want to consider 3rd party sites like flight aware to monitor your flight for any potential delays or cancellations. You know, in the event that your flight is unfortunately canceled, your airline will likely rebook you on a new flight if for some reason that route doesn't work for your travel schedule, though, call your airline, you know, talking to a customer service agent really provides you with flexibility to get the rebooking that you want. And one tip I really love is Kyle your airline's international hotline. And most part of that, yes, most U.S.
passengers will call the main line up. And while that's a great option, you'll likely indoor longer waits. And so try calling your foreign office and, you know, the agents there, you'll likely get through faster and agents there will be able to help you. >> Just the same rate, they speak English. What's going to talk about here? What are the best of pieces of luggage or bag when Elijah travel with? >> Yes, well, first and foremost, all say I am team carry on. So if you can pack a carry on a lie to reduce your
chances of losing any luggage along the way, you know, it's also a great idea so that you can buy pass the baggage carousel on your way out. So you can breeze right through the airport when you land. But if you are checking a bag, take a picture of your suitcase on this can really help you get compensated in the event that your bag does get lost or, you know, does arrive at your destination but arrives damaged. I have about 30 seconds. What's your best tip for booking hotels? Yes. So I would say if you having a
pup to hotels, compare prices on sites like booking dot com and Expedia to find a price that's right for you and your budget. Interestingly, the platform you use can also make a difference. So, you know, if you're on mobile weather app or browser prices might appear lower there, then they would when you're on desktop interest. And yeah, and that's because some aggregator sites will offer app only promotions in order to entice their users to download and use their apps and definitely consider that as well. Alicia precaution with Travel Leisure. Thank you so much, Alicia. Thank you for having me.
>> And when we come back, Cyber Monday, Black Friday, those are bargain hunting days. But are you really getting a deal and scam splurge or swap where to go big at the grocery aisle for your holiday feast, consumer confidential is coming right back. If you have started your holiday shopping, chances are you have already seen signs for deep discounts, but >> she just snap up those deals right away. Kevin Brasler is
the executive editor at Consumer Checkbook. It's a nonprofit with a mission to help consumers get the best service and lowest prices. Kevin, that's music to our ears, especially right. Welcome. So let's talk about this study that you all did. It's not even Thanksgiving, but we've been seeing since October that many stores have been comparing their deals to Black Friday sale saying shop early shop off and you're going to get great discounts. What do
you actually find when you compared prices across? >> A bunch of stores actually. When I woke up this morning, there were 2 junk e-mails waiting for me. Same Black Friday starts now. A few major retailers. I really urge folks to not worry so much about the timing of these things. Don't think I'd better jump on this quote, unquote, deal. Now we're going to go away. We've been tracking prices at major
retailers for years. We recently completed a study where we look that I mean, 25 major retailers over 33 weeks. We checked in on their prices wound and found that almost all of them these days are guilty of holding what we call misleading sales, where, you know, the sales, these supposed discounts never. And this week after week when we checked in these prices that these products for were listed as being on sale. But what they're doing is essentially they're crossing out a price, a list or regular price that they rarely if ever charge out so that they can tell you that they're selling it for 20% off, 40% off 60% off.
>> So it's like a per must sail. It's always happening and you think McCain getting a better deal. But in some cases it never was at that regular priced. Right? And in many cases, the stores never charge that list. Price for only charged for 10 minutes or for a few hours or something. If these are misleading sales and fake sales for temps to get you to not shop around. Thank you. Think oh, yeah. Now I buy
now. And by that, you know, if it's if it says it's 60% off, what's your your inclination is to say, well, they're actually giving it away. Why would I bother shop? There is a real psychology to its case. You found that you look at 25 stores, 33 weeks. What is the best way then to know if a sale really is the sale? And if this really is the good time to buy that item. >> Right. But don't be pressured. Don't think okay.
If I don't do this right now, this deal is going to go away because that's really the case. We rarely found that, you know, prices dipped below a certain threshold for very long and that the relief you just if you have jumped on something, you would have lost out, you know, stores, some of meat on their websites have countdown clocks. Now that you too, to turn things it to make sure that you need to you by then and there without shopping around. So the key is to shop around what? Make sure you can't get a better price somewhere else to it. Do a quick Internet search to see if if other major retailers are offering it for less. Sometimes I'll just search it right there in the store. There you go.
And if you're in the store, you can even use apps that let you scan barcodes and we'll do some shopping for you. There are price shopping bots out there. There's a few that that we've tried that seem to work. OK? Price grabber has one Yahoo. Shopping as one. There are, you know, extensions. You can add to your Web browser that what I called honey, it will look around to see if their coupon codes comply or maybe better deals, other places. I'll tell you, none of these things are perfect, but none of them work great. But overall, the key is to just make sure
you do some shopping around before you buy, especially if it's a big ticket item. >> Ken, what are you finding in terms of stores and their willingness to do 2 important things? One price match our stores generally willing to price match. You find a better price. You can show it to them and to are they willing to do price adjustments more now than they have in the past? >> Yeah, both those things, yes, especially if you're in a store and you find that a competitor is is charging less money for that item and most stores will price match and it sounds like a pain. But we found our researchers have found that when they've tried to do it, it's quite easy.
Got somebody at the register can do it. Sometimes it's good customer service. We found was a pretty simple, straightforward process. Another thing you can do is and this is you also kind of a pain is that after you bought something of prices go down and so you could have bought it for less of that retailer. You can usually go back and they'll go ahead and make an adjustment here. You're building up and
goes a long way. It does. Yeah, you know, and a lot of these stores they're set up. They're used to it surprisingly. I mean, I just don't think many people did this, but it was all right now to to get these adjustments.
>> Kevin Brasler with consumers check with. Thank you so much for your time, Kevin C? Well, next up, take the pressure off of your holiday meal. Enjoy the feast without the bus. We're going to show you how to save time and money. Consumer confidential comes right back.

prices we know are up 73% from last year. It's expensive. So what are your best tips and terms of how you can save on the staples and still have a wonderful meal where Tillis camp, where should we splurge? Where should we swap? >> Sir, I don't buy the b*****. Don't buy the whole bird by the legs. So we actually our main event this year. I know it's a
little bit crazy. And I remember talking with the directors like this is not a flex. They're much cheaper because they're less than them. And they're totally delicious is. Yeah, I mean, yeah, absolutely. And we have a great recipe for them and they can be just as delicious as anything else. I'd just say if that's where you're going to save right there, if you go for the legs and also they're also like a pound each or panic. Yeah, it's basically takes what some
of the hard matter right here. You know how many people it's a light one life or personal. I love that. Okay. Stuffing. Don't worry about using dried spices. You actually can use
right ways. You can use the spices that are you're covered right now. Just anything I know. A lot of recipes call for fresh, right? And you feel like I got now you can use drive one tablespoon of fresh people's one teaspoon of dried. Got it. I was very careful not to people voicing their relatives has actually so. And if you want to get fresh, absolutely,
don't worry about wasting because there are ways to preserve them and say that he basically cut them like fresh cut flowers, the one left overs and put them in a glass on the counter and they can stay for a couple of days. Just change the water every day. And then, you know, if you're worried about still not using them to stop him up and put him in an ice cube tray with all of this trip track, put it in the freezer and then you've got these little flavor bombs you can put in soon and stews and sauces. Yes, okay. That's a great set. One about beverages. Those tend to add up to get pricey. What are your tips on saving there? So don't feel like you have to have of arrival of one for every single person like Uncle Doug really looks like to run well that he can bring it here. Job is to get one red and one white crowd pleasers.
They don't have to be expensive. If you talk to use the your winds up, they'll have the bottle is for like 12 bucks a bottle and the more you buy the cheaper it is. If you get a case if you have a big crowd by one red onion body read that goes nicely with your turkey. One white, let's say a sponsor.
This is 6 on Sarah's of unemployment because they say the attorney and they get to choose and you're done. I like that. You know, people did that for weddings, too, because if you have an open bar can be really crazy. But if you just
use a few select rings, nobody really even feels like they're missing out. Totally. Let's talk about the grocery store. Where can we cut cars? What should we be keeping an eye on when it comes to pardons? So the big thing about saving other grocers are, you know, it's it's it's tough out there. I mean, and prices are skyrocketing. So plan early
play. I like to say stop early. Stop off at that. First. Set your menu. Let's stop what you're not. We're going to have to buy. Perishables was non perishables not hospitals are going off on right now. We're talking about we've got a

>> 1992 her majesty has self describing it to go out as a horrible. Yeah. >> It just turned out to be an annus horribilis. >> Why in some of the most famous people in the world is high pressure. No more so than for Elizabeth typical who is
portraying Princess Diana. Do you stand in front of America and kind of trying to get the my name is right or is that not the right way to go about it? >> I think that when people were asked about it, we feel a lot of responsibility what we do as hectic as actors in the show. But we'll so know that we're not trying to get a like trying to capture the >> This is how the crowd depicts the moment. Charles and Diana told the Queen it's over. This is really what you want.

Yeah. >> These a tumultuous times within the family and that's very units which is frost play these the difficulty is.
>> I have been difficult months for Netflix openly criticized. >> But the line between fact and fiction, including but people close to King Charles and Queen Camilla, like acclaimed British actress Dame Judi Dench. I think that public are well aware that it's a drama is on a documentary.
Some of the criticism is coming from people who are friends of Charles and Camilla. But they also has put those particular criticisms came from not having same a second all film. Yeah, this is why it was like speaking out like that when the I mean that the assumption is that they didn't that friend the Prince Charles would be damaged in some way. But we're presenting the crown is what happened.
>> I'm in this office. He happened to meet it as we've been senstive since the Queen's death. Of course it has you. Everyone's been affected including office and when the queen died, we were filming. That's why I think people are
hyper sensitive at the moment. I think that this was coming out if this had come out 2 years ago, I didn't think that would be on these comments. >> Your rhetoric on a royal Ghana and you come face-to-face with the king will make up the creek as well.

It really was a pleasure to talk to them. And coming up, we'll have even more with this exciting new cops. We're sticking to it.
pumps topless with more from the season 5 cough. They spoke to us recently about what viewers can expect it. >> Views of the crown can expect in season 5. It's the 1990's and the Mauna Kea was going through it time.
Various members of the royal family were finding it difficult, their own a bit old inevitably and yet that coming up against it in terms of the way that they're affected by some of that private lives, personal decisions. >> You must do to king duty. >> We will never understand how it straight up. >> Well, I think this season 5, what people will take from the SoCal behind the scenes is that these are all events that happened in the early 90's that the the world knows about and sending British society knows about. And part of the fascination of the crown is that they do go behind closed doors, provide some kind of understanding of the royals and how they dealt with these issues that practically or emotionally. And that's the new reason the crown exists is to show you behind the doors.
>> I think empathy is very much in this series and has been from the very first season. But they did. That's the point of the drum. If you show encounters with the they're real or not sure you're inviting the audience to look at it with kind eyes or at least try to understand the dilemma is of these characters. And I think the 2 movies,
right? He knows that to happen. >> For years I've called for Mauna Kea that reflects the world outside and things might behavior that's threatening its survival. >> What is love? How does love exist in in a system like the royal family? >> I think it's not obvious in any family in should be in every family. And I think that when you think of the royal
family, it's kind of sometimes you can so to think that somehow different and separate and most like a different breed of Paris, but then all to know that that the human beings with with hossam feelings and broken hearts and regrets and pain and grief exactly the same as you and I are the causes that it's sometimes we have to remind us that that's what the the Crown scripts can do. They can take us into the thoughts and feelings of them and show them as people separate from being royals is a lovely scene late running at when Prince a small been Queen. Elizabeth have a kind of a bit of a showdown together.
And you know, that is that is not a scene about a month and a princess. It's a scene about 2 systems. What counts a presentation incident, the yuan not now extending to add that is different. How is it different? I'm not swaps crucial about to end that. That's a full would seem to go dramatically to a lot of
very interesting places as far as the queen is concerned. >> And for kids, Phillip, when they met with the new ways to manage me, but the they were very much in love. And I think that was very lucky. But they both knew the responsibilities that they had it going forward in their lives as the queen and Prince Philip said to have none of us has a very good baseline, I think helps them lose. >> I think it's the only way they could have existed for so long jet actually being loud problem. Just be tolerating each other for 70 is you make a better person.
>> And you with me, it's not the point of marriage. >> You through these these difficult times which was seen season 5 of so many people on lives have difficult periods. These highlighted because in England to the queen and Prince Philip in the Moore family been in our lives are all lies and you just taken for granted and they say, oh, yeah, they do this to do that. And it was you didn't really look at them seeing these will consider what they're going through, what their lives are. Not really. Peter Morgan's trying to just give a little glimpse
into what it might have been like to be faced with tragedy with divorces with various situations. That's what's very exciting and about this particular season. Great to hear from more of them. And we just getting started coming up. Some terrific crown memories from today. Vote. Don't go anywhere it. Each season of the series showcases the Mauna Kea a different moment in time. I was lucky enough to visit the
