He’s Coming to Town! CheapOair Gives Exclusive Insight into Santa’s Post Christmas Vacation

Christmas is hours away and CheapOair® knows that old St. Nick and his elves have a big evening ahead of them. After a night of spreading joy to boys and girls across the world, Santa Claus will deserve a little rest and relaxation. Luckily, CheapOair’s Holiday Cheer Team has great advice for the jolly Christmas icon.

“Santa has a heavy load of toys for the children, has to climb down millions of chimneys, and will probably be half-frozen flying over at such a high altitude. It only makes sense that he would seek out a little bit of tropical getaway for himself and Mrs. Claus,” remarked Tom Spagnola, Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations at Fareportal.

According to CheapOair’s data, while Santa doesn’t experience time the way most people do, he follows a loose path starting with the Pacific Ocean in the southern hemisphere and makes his way west toward North America. This would make several Caribbean islands such as Saint Martin, Grand Cayman, Turks & Caicos, and Antigua the perfect spots for Kris Kringle to soak in some post-sleigh sun.

“I would expect him to take off his Santa suit, throw on some candy cane boardshorts, and see him lying on the beach with sand between his toes and a summer drink in his hand,” added Spagnola.

CheapOair Predicts 6% Global Travel Increase In 2020

Leading Online Travel Agency Shares Predictions and Popular Destinations for the New Year

According to CheapOair, 2020 will be a very strong year for the airline industry. After analyzing year-over-year data, the flight-focused online travel agency has announced that they expect to see a global passenger increase of 4-6% while considering factors such as fuel cost, traveler demographics, and the economy.

“We’re looking forward to another booming year for the travel industry,” said Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations. “In 2019, we saw more and more airlines add ‘Basic Economy’ fares to their offerings. However, in the 2020 year ahead, airlines will focus on ‘Premium Economy’ seating that will increase revenue per ticket without sacrificing affordable airfare.”

Additionally, the budget fare boom has led to many travelers opting for more “off-the-grid” destinations for their extended trips and escapes in 2020. As a result of this increased consumer interest in under-the-radar retreats, and with it, fewer crowds, smaller cities are firmly putting themselves on the map.

“Smaller wine country spots in California are experiencing tremendous forward bookings in 2020. San Luis Obispo, Paso Robles, and Mariposa are beautiful wineries with breathtaking views and much smaller crowds,” said Spagnola. “Upstate New York is also showing an increase in ticket sales as tourists are searching for quieter areas to enjoy their vacations with a quick and accessible route back to Manhattan.”

Internationally, destinations including Colombia, India, New Zealand, Australia, and Europe are home to many of these undiscovered cities. Each of these locations is within two hours from beach and city life, affording visitors both an immersive tropical sanctuary and bustling culture metropolis, all at a highly affordable price point.

It’s Vacation Time! Mexico Tops Holiday Season’s International Getaway List

While there’s no place like home for the holidays, there’s also nothing quite like an incredible winter getaway. CheapOair®, the budget-friendly online travel agency, has named its top ten international destinations to take the perfect holiday vacation.

For a second consecutive year, Mexico topped the list with a 9% increase in travelers from 2018 to 2019. Additionally, India and the Philippines rounded out the top three spots with a steady increase in passenger volume over the last few years.

“This year we saw a spike in travelers taking advantage of visiting exotic destinations around the world to see and experience various cultures. If you’re not visiting friends or family this December, the lower airfare is very enticing to consumers who are looking to get a last-minute trip in before the New Year begins,”  said Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations.

Jamaica, which is known for its rich culture, saw a 77% increase in bookings year-over-year as more tourists are flocking to take part in the numerous festivities that begin in December and run through New Year’s Day.

CheapOair’s findings also found that although many customers were heading for warmer weather, some savvy snowbirds sought out cold-weather destinations as their preferred holiday vacation.

“Warm weather travel is always at its peak during the holiday season, however many travelers are still making plans to visit the cooler regions like England and Toronto. If you’re looking to celebrate the holidays around the world, international travel to Asia or Europe has extremely attractive costs right now as they’re considered to be in their low season,” added Spagnola.
