Last month, we analyzed the 2014 November and December median price for travel around the world to determine the most budget-friendly day to book for holiday hotel rooms. What did we find?
December 1 was the day when prices fell up to 18% in the United States, and 15% worldwide. We also saw a significant reduction in prices from December 1 through December 10, as well as in the week before Christmas.
The good news is that if you still haven’t booked your holiday travel, you can be slightly adventurous and wait until the week before Christmas to book that flight to Grandma’s or the hotel room in your hometown and still enjoy big savings.
So, now you know what the best time to book is. And if you’re looking to escape the cold weather and get some vitamin D, here is our list of the seven most affordable warm weather destinations in December.
- Los Angeles, California
- Phoenix, Arizona
- Playa del Carmen
- Dallas, Texas
- Houston, Texas
- Atlanta, Georgia
- New Orleans, Louisiana
