What is the Outlook for the winter travel season?
This winter will likely involve more domestic travel as travelers are cautious about
perceptions of unrest abroad. As a result, the more adventurous traveler may find
exceptional deals on flights and accommodations. With the warmer weather trends in
early-winter, there will be more travel to places like Chicago, New York, and Denver,
as many look for their "winter fix" for the upcoming holiday season.
What are the best travel options for families?
Theme parks win out for the younger family members, and the warmer weather adds to
the allure for other members (grandparents, aunts, and uncles) to join the family
getaway. At the same time, many families seek out the bunny slopes for their munchkins,
tying in a robust workout as part of their holiday. Cruises will be a big winner this
