Leading Online Travel Agency Shares Top Destinations for Travelers during the Holiday Weekend
NEW YORK, NY – Jun 17, 2015 – CheapOair, the first flights-focused hybrid online travel agency, announced today the top ten destinations travelers are booking for the Independence Day holiday. CheapOair’s data shows that airfare to these top destinations is significantly lower than the average airfare for all booked flights for the same weekend.
“This year, we have seen an uptick in bookings for mid-week July 1st departures, as many consumers will be celebrating Independence Day over a long weekend,” explains Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations. “Americans are taking advantage of the low cost of airfare this year during the holiday weekend by traveling coast to coast.”
Key findings include that consumers are traveling mostly within the continental United States; San Juan, Puerto Rico and Cancun, Mexico, were the only overseas spots making it into the top 10. Chicago, Illinois, San Francisco, California, and Las Vegas, Nevada have moved back into the top 10 this year. Airfare to the top five destinations all land at below $400 roundtrip, an attainable price for vacation seekers across the United States.
