More Thanksgiving Vacation Deals
As more people discover the fun and value of vacationing over the holiday, demand for Thanksgiving travel deals continues to grow. We have a few tips on how to score the perfect vacation deal!
Flexible Travel Dates
Fly on Thanksgiving, or lengthen your trip to fly on off-peak days. Thanksgiving week is one of the busiest times to fly during the year. If you have flexibility, you are more likely to find cheaper flights (or packages) if you can leave on the days before or after peak dates. You may even be able to book a longer vacation which begins the week before Thanksgiving, and still save money over peak pricing right before the holiday!
You'll find that a diverse array of destinations rely on summer and spring break travel, resulting in impressive Thanksgiving travel deals everywhere from Peru to Ireland. In some cases, you might need to bundle up a little more than you'd prefer, but who minds a little sweater weather when you're visiting spots straight off your travel bucket list?
Look for Off-Peak Destinations
Since Thanksgiving occurs in late fall, the timing is considered off-peak for many worldwide locations, resulting in some terrific Thanksgiving travel deals. You may even have the opportunity to stay at upscale hotels and resorts that may normally be outside of your price range.
But if you can’t leave early, consider flying to your destination on Thanksgiving Day. Most people would prefer not to fly on the holiday, leaving discounted seats for you.
Travel to Europe
November is the beginning of the low season throughout much of Europe. And since Europeans don’t celebrate the holiday, they’re not traveling within this time frame, give you more discounted airfares and packages. Traveling at this time of year can mean less crowds and a more relaxed pace.
Destinations like Central Europe -- think Prague, Budapest and even Germany -- and Italy -- Tuscany, Rome and all those other dream destinations -- all offer tremendous value and lower crowds in November.
Escorted Tours offer great value during this period, and since they include accommodations, tours, transfers and most meals, they're easy to book last minute -- no complicated planning required!
