AAA travel agent helping increased number of clients during cold snap

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - With all this cold, sometimes the best way to beat it is to get out of it completely.

That is exactly what one Sioux Falls travel agent said many people have been doing the last week.

According to AAA Agent Terry Tencate, the number of calls went up during the cold snap last week with people clamoring to get to some place warm.

"'Where can I go that's warm, and how fast can I get there?' We'll do everything we possibly can to try to get them to their destination, but they want to get out as fast as they can," she said.

Tencate said that if people are re-routed to a different airport other than Sioux Falls, to be careful on the roads.
