Holiday Travel Myths

Don’t look now, but we are already halfway through the month of October. That means the holidays are right around the corner, and for many that means travel season. People all across the nation will be heading home to be with loved ones, but without the right planning, they will end up paying way too much. Starting the planning process early can really help you save some money during the holiday travel season. However, it is important to realize that there are holiday travel myths that are costing you money, as shared by Forbes.

  • Beach – Many people believe that beach vacation costs skyrocket during the winter. But, KAYAK found that Ft. Lauderdale and Miami hotel prices are actually considerably lower in November. As long as you can avoid the days directly surrounding Thanksgiving, you can get in a great trip.
  • Costs – Some will say that you need to be prepared to pay double or triple the normal travel rate if you want airfare during the holidays. Fortunately, if you are able to be a bit flexible in your planning, you should be able to score a reasonable deal.
  • Specifics – You have probably heard something about booking your travel on a certain day of the week to save money. But, a study has found that the exact day of the week is a pretty moot point when it comes to planning. The best thing to do is plan as far in advance as possible.

Do you have your holiday travel plans finalized? If not, it would be wise to start the planning process much sooner than later. However, whether you plan things out months in advance, or even just days, Trending Travel is happy to help. They can provide travel vouchers, discounted travel rates, general travel expertise and more. Contact Trending Travel, today, and ask them any questions that you have about your next trip.

October Travel Ideas

Has the time come for you and your loved ones to get away? There is only so long that everyone can take the same old routine. However, not everybody has the chance to get away all that often. If you have some time off this month, it is always worth checking out spots that will be noteworthy. CN Traveler recently wrote a blog, discussing the best places to travel during the month of October.

  • Key West, FL – If you are looking for an interesting Halloween spot, Key West is for you. Fantasy Fest is a ten day festival, concluding with a parade that is generally watched by about 70,000.
  • New Orleans, LA – Sticking with the Halloween theme, why not check out what’s called America’s most haunted city? October is also a very dry month for New Orleans, so you won’t have to bring an umbrella everywhere.
  • San Francisco, CA – Many people claim that the biggest negative of San Francisco is the climate. However, September and October are considered the exceptions, making this a great time to check this area out.

If you have some time to travel the globe, October is a great month to do so. Everybody will be traveling for the holidays, and October represents an opportunity to avoid major crowds.
