CheapOair.com Reveals Top Trips Americans Are Taking with 2019 Tax Refunds

Tax refunds are arriving just in time for the spring travel season and CheapOair®, an online travel agency and leading provider of cheap flights, has analyzed trends and booking data to reveal the top destinations that travelers are jet-setting to with their extra cash. This year, travelers from different age groups are planning getaways to big cities, warm weather destinations, European hot spots, and more.

Travelers in Generation Z, aged 18-23, are cashing in their tax refunds to travel to some adventurous international destinations, including Paris, Barcelona, Cancun, and even Bangkok. Domestically, young globe trotters are heading to Orlando, Los Angeles, Ft. Lauderdale, New York City, and Miami .

This year, a top destination for millennial travelers aged 24-38 is Zagreb, Croatia, among other European hotspots like London and Rome. CheapOair also found that millennials are traveling internationally more than any other generation, specifically to big cities across Europe and Asia, including Bangkok and Tokyo .

While the younger generations are jet-setting off to big cities, CheapOair found that Generation X and Baby Boomers, travelers aged 39-73, are taking this opportunity to relax and travel to popular warm-weather destinations. These destinations include many cities in Florida, like Orlando, Miami, and Fort Myers, in addition to international destinations like Cancun, Madrid, and the Philippines .

“This year, travel is a very popular way for Americans to spend their tax refunds, as they’re receiving them right in the middle of the spring travel season,” said Tom Spagnola, Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations at CheapOair. “Many parents are also using this opportunity to plan a spring break vacation for their families, while younger generations are using their extra funds for spring break trips to big cities and popular beach destinations within the U.S. and the Caribbean.”

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.

Fareportal Founder to Be Honored by NYU Winthrop Hospital at the 22nd Annual “A Cause to Celebrate” Fundraiser

The Jain family will be recognized for their continued support of the Children’s Medical Center’s Child Life Program

Sam S. Jain, the Founder and CEO of Fareportal, along with his wife Vera Jain are set to be honored on March 21, 2019 at the 22nd Annual “A Cause to Celebrate” fundraiser benefiting the Child Life Program at NYU Winthrop Hospital’s Children’s Medical Center.

The Child Life Program provides hospitalized children and their families with the assistance of certified Child Life Specialists who work to ease the fear and anxiety of hospitalization by helping pediatric patients to better understand their medical treatments.

“As a parent, I understand how the complexities of a hospital stay can cause confusion for the whole family,” said Mrs. Jain. “Child Life Specialists are incredibly helpful, stepping in to assist during stressful times when there’s an inability to think straight.”

The Jains are dedicated benefactors of the NYU Winthrop Hospital community and are long-time supporters of both the Children’s Medical Center as well as the Emergency Medicine program. As immigrants, both Mr. and Mrs. Jain are advocates for having quality medical care available to all patients in need.

“We wanted to be involved with the community – and NYU Winthrop’s Hempstead Pediatric Clinic is an excellent venue through which we can contribute,” said Mr. Jain. “As a family of immigrants, the clinic is close to our hearts since it provides care to many under served immigrant populations.”

Mr. Jain has carried his personal passion for philanthropy over into his travel technology company, Fareportal. The company has a longstanding commitment to helping communities in need through charitable donations and volunteer work.

Family Spring Breakers Head to the Tropics, Europe for March Getaways

Across the U.S., students from kindergarten to 12th grade are beginning the countdown to spring break. In states like Texas and Florida, spring break is coming as soon as March 15th while others like New York, will have to wait until the tail end of April for their reprieve. CheapOair®, an online travel agency and leading provider of cheap flights, has analyzed the latest travel trends to determine the top destinations for elementary, middle, and high school families with spring break in March1.

Florida dominates this year’s domestic travel list with five destinations landing in the top 10 – Orlando, Tampa, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, and Ft. Myers. Internationally, there are several destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean in the top 10, but there are also a few European cities.

“With the rise of international low-cost carriers, traveling to a number of major cities in Europe has become very affordable compared to past years,” said Tom Spagnola, SVP of Supplier Relations at CheapOair. “In some cases, taking a family trip to England or France in March – the off-season for those destinations – may end up being cheaper than a trip to one of the tropical destinations.”

For March spring breaks, average domestic airfare this year is $387 while international airfare is averaging around $600. The cheapest domestic destination is Los Angeles, CA with an airfare of $278. Internationally, Barcelona is surprisingly the cheapest destination even compared to closer cities in Mexico or the Caribbean.

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.
