Do you know when is the best time to drive during the Xmas and New Year Holidays?

Waze has come up with a list of the best and worst travel times for the upcoming holiday season

The holiday season is upon us and many of us will take the opportunity to go on a short trip, balik kampung or just wander around in the mall. That means a lot of driving and time spent on the road. To make the most out of your well-deserved break, do you know when is the best time to drive to avoid the Xmas and New Year traffic?

Using the wealth of traffic data from its large community of drivers like you and me, Waze has come up with a list of recommended travel times for Christmas eve, Christmas day, New Year’s eve and on New Year’s day.

You can use this as a general guide for when you want to head out during the holiday period or for a more accurate, close to real-time update on road conditions, you can always use Waze’s Planned Drive function to plan the best times to drive before you head out.

Here are the best and worst times to drive on Christmas eve and Christmas day:

While we’re at it, I would like to take this opportunity to wish those who celebrate it a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone! Stay safe on the roads and hope you’ll be able to avoid the jams with some help from Waze.
