Tips for Planning a Late Summer Vacation

It’s never too late to plan a vacation! Below are some tips for planning a late summer vacation from my favorite Shermans Travel.

Tip #1: Book a flight-and-hotel package together. You can save as much as 40% over booking each individually on sites like Orbitz.com, Travelocity.com, and Hotels.com.

Tip #2: Try your luck on a last-minute trip. If you’re flexible on your destination, you can find good deals as late as 2 weeks or even 1 week out.

Tip #3: Take off on a Thursday and/or come back on a Monday – Friday and Sunday flights are usually more expensive.

Tip #4: Look for early-morning flights (you can sleep on the plane) for the best rates.

Tip #5: Stay close to home. Shorter jaunts mean lower fuel costs and less-expensive flights.

Tip #6: Head to off-season destinations like Phoenix, Miami, Jamaica, Cancun, and more, to capitalize on substantial hotel discounts.
