Traveling Prices Increase As The Holiday Season Approaches
The fall season is underway and that means millions are traveling for Thanksgiving and gearing up for Christmas. Nearly 24 million passengers are expected to fly this Thanksgiving, an increase of about 150,000 passengers from last year.
Theses days fewer planes are flying and airplanes could be close to 90% full with the busiest travel days between Friday, November 16, and Tuesday, November 27. Millions of people will be wanting to fly out on each day between November 16th though the 27th. Even with most of the planes nearly full travelers still have not booked their airline, hotel or car rentals yet.
That being said, airfare and hotel prices are likely to increase even more as we get closer to the holiday. Travelers who haven’t yet bought their plane ticket will find their best bet is to fly on Thanksgiving day, one the slowest days of the holiday season. Saving money is important and waiting til the last minute will end up costing you.
Have plans to fly this holiday season or for a vacation? If that’s the case, have you bought your tickets and booked hotel rooms yet?
