Data Shows the Most Popular Travel Days, Trends and Average Price Points for Vacationers this Season
CheapOair, the first flights-focused hybrid travel agency, announced today the top ten international and domestic destinations consumers are traveling to for spring break, between March 2nd and March 27th. This year, an overall trend that CheapOair is seeing with consumers booking air travel, is that in addition to full week getaways, some travelers are booking weekend trips, with departure days on Thursdays and return flights on Mondays.
“After analyzing our data booking trends for this year’s spring break travel, we’ve found that, due to the decrease in many airfare prices in recent years, travelers now have more flexibility to take weekend trips. However, a common mistake for travelers is to book a trip from Friday to Sunday, which are the most popular days to travel,” said Tom Spagnola, Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations for CheapOair. “Booking a longer weekend trip from Thursday to Monday allows travelers to get in a full five-day vacation, while also saving costs on hotel and flight rates, and even vacation days. It’s win-win.”
Among this year’s top domestic destinations for Spring Break, Orlando, Florida is the most popular city, with an average roundtrip airfare of $295. Additionally, Florida stole six out of the ten spots on the top destinations list, as airfare has decreased year-over-year to its many of its cities. Ultimately, this has driven more travelers to Florida, to take shorter trips to its popular cities more often than usual. Following Florida’s destination cities, on the list this year was also Las Vegas, NV, Denver, CO, San Juan, Puerto Rico and Cancun, Mexico.
