Is Spring Break Going to Cost You More?

Travelocity Top 10 Spring Break Destinations

Spring break vacations may come with a hefty price tag this year. Travelocity released its annual spring break travel data, which indicates a 14.7% year-over-year increase in domestic airfare while international airfare for spring break is flat year-over-year (.1% decrease). The traditional spring break travel period in the U.S. falls between March 1 and April 15. From a top destinations standpoint, Travelocity data reveals an affinity for Hawaii, continued love of South Florida and increasing desire to head to Las Vegas this spring. But it’s not all bad news.

“Though travelers are likely to face higher ticket prices for spring break, smart shoppers can still escape the harsh winter and find travel deals,” said Travelocity senior editor, Courtney Scott. “Travelers should try to travel on off-peak days, bundle flight and hotel bookings into vacation packages and search flights in surrounding airports.”

And, with international airfare staying relatively stagnant, maybe a trip abroad is the way to go this spring break.

“This might be the year to venture abroad for Spring Break,” said Scott. “Several international destinations have been trending in popularity over the past three years including Belize City, Aruba, San Juan, and the Netherlands Antilles.”
