Spring Break Travel Trends 2014
By Dale Spencer, @DaleSpencerwork
I’ve noticed a recent trend in bad cold weather jokes referencing the Disney movie, Frozen. Check out this parody: YouTube vid, Just Don’t Go. I’m sure there are plenty of other fun ones out there. I especially find the South versus the North snow day jokes in the US to be hilarious. I can’t wait for spring to arrive, which is why I wanted to discuss this year’s spring break. So, whether you need a getaway to work, relax, and/or party, I think these 2014 spring break travel trends below may interest you.
Here’s a good site to check out: The 2014 travel trend predictions from Budget Travel. My favorite booking site mentioned on Budget Travel’s website is homeaway.com. It offers rental stays in condos, townhomes, and houses. If the increase in hotel pricing is true this year, then you may want to look into this alternative especially if you plan to travel with a large group of people. For those who are under 25 and/or plan to travel with children and/or pets, make sure to check the restriction requirements per each listing.
If you’re looking for spring break deals, check out: Market Watch’s How to Get the Best Spring Break Travel Deals 2014. The site discusses the best times to book your travel since the costs are expected to rise this year. It even provides the hottest U.S. travel destinations of 2014. Cheapair.com and Travelocity.com have a top spring break list, too. Also, keep in mind that websites, apps, Facebook and other social media sites sometimes offer discount deals.
Are you planning a family getaway? Try: Fox New’s 5 Ways to Save on Spring Break Vacation. This site offers some good steal deals. My favorite is the Royal Caribbean cruise offer.
For your convenience, I’ve listed some other helpful travel sites:
