Crowds are expected to return in 2023, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer.
Houston—We all want to get away. It was seen during the holiday travel season when travel numbers rebounded to pre-pandemic levels.
As of early 2022, travel was still difficult, according to the Washington Post. At the time, a new coronavirus variant was still causing problems, and reservations had to roll the dice.
Rapid increase in travel demand
In 2022, everything eased as travel demand surged. Experts say the so-called “revenge trip” isn’t going away.
Travel site Hopper says 96% of its users plan to travel in 2023. Experts predict that many of these people will be heading out for spring break, with numbers surpassing last year and even he in 2019.
2023 travel hotspots
Popular domestic destinations include common suspects. Think Las Vegas, Orlando, Los Angeles. However, Hopper reported that tickets to places like Cancun, London and Barcelona are soaring, with international travel also getting a big boost.
When to book air travel in 2023
All of this means that spring break travel can be hectic. The longer you wait, the higher it gets. Also, avoid the busy season. You may have to sacrifice a few days at your destination to save yourself from the chaos.
Lighten your load, get a tracker
If there’s anything you’ve learned from the Southwest’s holiday meltdown, lighten your pack and put a tracker like the Apple Air Tag out there.
