Oh my, what a year 2020 was!
But now it's 2021, and things are changing. According to Chris Elliott, author, advocate, journalist and the person we rely on to interpret the data and solve problems in the travel sphere, patience may not be the best idea right now when it comes to travel plans. In his words:
"We've seen very aggressive discounts at the beginning of 2021, such as Southwest Airlines' $29 fare sale. But those low prices will soon yield to reality, which is that in a post-vaccine world, people will be paying more to travel, including higher nightly rates for their vacation rentals. It's just a matter of time before hotel rates, car rental prices, and yes, even cruise fares, catch up."
Chris is not suggesting you travel right now but, his "Bottom line: Don't wait too long to book your next vacation. Patience doesn't always pay." Read his full article here.
Take good care,
