PHOENIX -- Thanksgiving is traditionally the busiest family travel time of the year. And we all know that holiday travel can be stressful. So on Tuesday's Good Morning Arizona, Our Gina Maravilla got some tips from our expert, "The Travel Mom," Emily Kaufman.

The most important tip she had to share with us? Be prepared!

-Double check your driving direction
-Check weather and road conditions
-Carry an emergency kit
-Make sure you have enough gas
-Bring activities and electronics for the kids

She also advises parents to stay organized by using Ziploc bags. This way you can keep outfits and activities labeled and organized.

Another suggestion? Use disposable shower caps to carry your shoes and avoid spreading dirt and germs.
