Don't Let Someone Else Pick Your Seats or Room

Always, always, always choose airline seats at the moment you book the tickets, and pay extra if you must. If you leave seat selection for later, there's a decent chance your family will be divided into three separate rows, what with flights increasingly being sold out or overbooked. And call the hotel with room requests, double-checking your preferences at check-in, or else you may have to listen to rowdy guests exit the hotel elevator well after kids' bedtimes.
