Planning to travel this summer? Be prepared to spend more money!
By Lourdes Martin | 3-29-23: If you’re planning to travel during the summer, be aware that the cost of vacations has gone up considerably compared to previous years. Summer is traditionally a popular time for travel, with many people taking advantage of the warmer weather and longer days to explore new destinations or relax on a beach. However, if you’re planning to travel this summer, it’s important to be aware that the cost of vacations has increased considerably compared to previous years.
There are several reasons for the increase in travel costs this year. One major factor is that the industry is still recovering from the pandemic, which has led to a number of supply chain disruptions and shortages in the travel industry. For example, many airlines have had to reduce their capacity due to decreased demand during the pandemic, which has resulted in higher ticket prices. In addition, hotels and vacation rentals are experiencing high demand, leading to higher costs for accommodations.
Another factor contributing to the increase in travel costs is the current state of the economy. As the global economy recovers from the pandemic, many countries are experiencing inflation and rising prices for goods and services. This can make travel more expensive, as the cost of everything from food to transportation may be higher than in previous years.
Despite the higher costs, there are still ways to save money on your summer vacation. Here are two tips that can save you money:
- A price guarantee program is currently being tested by Google for Google Flights, which offers compensation if the flight price decreases after booking through their service. Learn more about it here.
- Fly on off-peak days and times to help offset the cost of your flight. According to Justine Goodman, the travel and weddings editor of Refinery29, better deals can usually be found by flying on Monday or Tuesday as opposed to Thursday or Friday. Additionally, the second flight of the day tends to be less costly than the first.
In conclusion, if you’re planning to travel this summer, be aware that the cost of vacations has gone up considerably compared to previous years. However, by being flexible with your travel plans, looking for deals and discounts, and being strategic with your spending, you can still enjoy a memorable and affordable vacation.
