With gas prices continuing to climb, this only means one thing for travel costs...prices will go up.
If these high fuel prices are here to stay, the airlines are going to inevitably make changes to fares. Right now, if you buy flights for later this year, you will see you can still find some good deals.
But, those won't last much longer.
With higher fuel costs, this also makes food and other goods come at a higher cost as well. Resorts and restaurants will eventually start passing that on to consumers, making the entire cost of your vacation exponentially higher.
Rising gas prices highlight a key piece of advice for families: be realistic when it comes to travel. Gone are the days where you could fly to Florida for $200. That's just not going to be the case anymore unless you are extremely lucky. We have already seen average fares increase about 2% in the first part of this year. That will continue to rise in the near future.
While prices for Domestic and Caribbean travel rise, Europe and Asia will stay stagnant or decrease.
Traveling abroad may now be cheaper, due to concerns over the Russia/Ukraine conflict. Experts say European airlines are locking in their jet fuel prices so travel to Europe likely won't increase, plus lower demand to Europe during a war could also lower prices. Traveling overseas will likely have it's issues with airlines making more stops to avoid Russian airspace-expect longer travel times. If you are planning to travel to Europe this summer or the fall, it might be a good opportunity to actually lock in those fares now.
Pro tip: When looking for less expensive flights, always book early and add flexibility to your travel dates. Try to fly on a Tuesday or Wednesday. When you book with us, we will also look to see if using one airline for departure and another airline for your return will give you a better price.
Being flexible is the key to savings.
Don't wait to book your vacation, you can lock in the price now before things go up. Most of the vacation packages we sell offer a low deposit and easy cancellation terms if your plans change.
