Festive Season is almost here. Years ago I heard the term Festive Season and adopted it. It is so very inclusive. There is still time to plan a family or friends visit for the holidays. I have done a few tickets lately and there is still good availability, price wise.
We have all heard about the recent airline cancellations. So many flights canceled. As long as the flying public is not consistent there will be staffing issues. And when the weather becomes involved all is multiplied! Yes, more people are flying than in the past year, but not enough to fill all the planes most of the time. Next week I will go to Seattle on an Airbus 318. Currently the plane is half full/empty! This small plane, 130 – 170 passengers, was designed for short hull flights. Delta is using it to cross the county. That is how few people are flying.
So now is the time to plan, especially during popular times! There is plenty of availability at resorts too! If you want to go off times, January is a great time to escape. Most people are back from their festive activities and have spent their money on gifts. So January there are far less people traveling. Therefore, you may feel more comfortable exploring the world. Yes, Mexico or the Caribbean are great places to explore in January. But so are cities. I have been to both Paris and Rome in January. Neither are particularly cold. Museums and other venues are open. Music halls and opera houses are open. There is so much to see and do in cities. And when the weather is cool, it is a great time to just walk and walk. Stop for a beverage and then walk onward. Walking beyond the tourist areas, allows you to experience the city and its people. Sometimes I have walked until I could not take another step and wave down a taxi! More than once!
So whether you want to explore beach or city there is plenty of availability for you. So call me soon and we can make your plans.
