CheapOair.com Reveals 2019’s Hottest Spring Break Destinations for College-aged Travelers

With spring just around the corner, college-aged travelers are already planning their warm weather escapes for spring break. CheapOair®, an online travel agency and leading provider of cheap flights, has compared data and analyzed trends on new, up-and-coming destinations that travelers ages 18-25 years old are heading to this year.

While many are still traveling to popular spring break destinations, such as Mexico and Florida, booking data shows a significant increase in European destinations among travelers ages 18-25. England, France, Ireland, Spain, and Croatia are among the most popular destinations for international travel, while Florida, California, and Colorado are the top domestic destinations1.

“For spring break, travelers are still spending an average of 5-6 days in popular destinations such as Florida and Mexico,” said Tom Spagnola, Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations at CheapOair. “An overall trend we’re seeing with this age group is that they’re taking longer international trips of 10-12 days in destinations such as Spain and Netherlands, and up to 22 days in destinations such as Thailand.”

Exactly half of the top domestic destinations among spring breakers are within Florida as we see Orlando, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, and Fort Myers topping the charts with roundtrip airfare averaging at $311 within the Sunshine State2.

The beginning of March will be the busiest travel time among 18-25-year-old travelers as nearly 70% of them will be traveling before March 15th. Additionally, CheapOair found that these travelers are booking domestic airfare an average of 88 days ahead of their trip, while lead time for international travel is an average of 112 days1.

By consistently monitoring travel trends, CheapOair’s mission is to educate and aid consumers and travel professionals in both planning their travel accommodations and staying current on the most popular destinations.

Travel Easier with these CheapOair Booking Hacks and Travel Tips for 2019

Take advantage of these travel insights to save you money and have a carefree vacation

Planning a vacation requires a lot of organization and important details can easily get overlooked. CheapOair®, an online travel agency and leading provider of cheap flights, is proud to share its top travel tips and hacks for 2019. With these insights, travelers can enjoy their next vacations even more by securing great deals, saving money, and traveling both smarter and safer.

Booking Hacks:

Two countries for the price of one
Many travelers may not like the idea of long layovers, but this hack can give you extra days in another country, often without any added airfare costs. As an added bonus, you may be eligible for free hotel stays, tours, and/or airport transfers provided by the airline. Check with your airline for stopover specifics.

Mix and match airlines to save
Booking your departure and return flights on different airlines can often save you money. Two one-way tickets on separate airlines can sometimes be cheaper than a single round-trip ticket on one airline. CheapOair’s flight search does this automatically by pairing one-way flight options to help you find their cheapest price.

Book in advance
The early bird gets the deal! You might be familiar with the term “last-minute travel deals” but booking as far as three months in advance can often save you much more. Additionally, you’ll guarantee yourself accommodations, have access to the best selection of seats on your flights, and have your choice of excursions and tours.

Travel Tips:

Make copies of your passport
If your passport is lost or stolen, you might find yourself stuck at the airport or border and could even be denied entry into your home country. Make at least two copies of your passport before traveling. Keep one copy with you and give the other copy to a friend or family member whom you can get in touch with while you’re away. You can keep yours as a printed copy or it can be digital if you’ll have access to email or your smartphone.

Plan out your payments
When traveling, certain establishments may only accept certain credit cards. Having at least two different cards from different financial institutions will help to ensure you’re able to complete your transactions. If you’re not comfortable carrying credit cards, cash is always the best way to ensure you aren’t stuck in a difficult situation. It’s recommended to inform your bank of your specific travel plans because if a purchase or cash withdrawal is made in another country the bank may freeze the account as a security precaution.

Always negotiate prices first
Utilizing fun local transportation options such as cabs, tuk tuks, or rickshaws are great ways to immerse yourself in a new country. Before you get in, make sure to negotiate the price, especially if there isn’t a meter. Check directions as well to inform your driver of the closest intersection, notable landmarks, and expected travel time. The more you know about your trip, the less likely a driver will be able to take advantage of you.

Be prepared and carry a small first aid kit
You never know what may happen on your journey; that’s why it’s best to have a small first aid kit on you to speed up your recovery should you become sick or injured when traveling. It is recommended to pack bandages, antibacterial wipes, aspirin, safety pins, tweezers, and pain relief creams. You can make a DIY kit or buy one at your local pharmacy.
