Travel expert and author, Mark Murphy, is back and he's debunking a few common holiday travel myths.

Are those tales about high hotel prices, dangerous driving and cheapest flight days really true? Mark's got all the details.

MYTH #1: Hotel Prices are outrageous during the holiday season.

MYTH #2: New Year's Eve is the most dangerous day to drive.

The days right before Christmas can be more dangerous. If you need to rent a car use smaller rental car companies like Payless and Sixt.

MYTH #3: Christmas Day is always the cheapest day to fly during the holidays.

For a good price checker check out Cheapair.com. Also, use meta-search sites like Kayak and Hipmunk.

MYTH #4: The TSA will not let you travel with wrapped packages.
