Gabe Saglie, Senior Editor for Travelzoo, joined “The Rhode Show” to share some tips and deals for our upcoming holiday travel plans.

Thanksgiving’s Over – 6 Tips for Navigating Travel Now!

  • Window of opportunity: for those with time to spare and desire to travel, the 3 weeks between Thanksgiving & Christmas mean a lull in travel demand and, therefore, a nice drop off in prices
  • Book 2023 now: most sales you see this season will target travel next year, so December becomes a great time to map out next year’s travels and nab deals
  • Alternate airports: price flights into/out of competing local airports (EWR/LGA/JFK, DAL/DFW, LAX/BUR/SNA, etc) – fares, and convenience factors, can vary widely
  • Take work with you: post-Covid flexibility trend allows you to bring work with you, allowing you to be choosier with travel dates and to avoid peak periods
  • Go Where the Crowds Aren’t: pick your destination based on demand to get better pricing – Vegas, for example, is at a premium on NYE but a bargain over Christmas
  • Pre-purchase: paying for your amenities like airport parking and airport club passes ahead of time is a solid guarantee – spacing is limited!
