5 Tips for Traveling Smart in 2017

New Years is right around the corner and 2017 will greet us before we blank our eyes! We gathered 5 tips on airfare and traveling – pushing you one step closer to your new years resolutions!

The day you book matters!

Fares are like frogs; they hop all over the place. But you can improve your chances of snagging a low fare by following a few guidelines, based on Expedia’s findings and MSN reporting:

●Book on a Sunday, when fares can be 16 percent cheaper. (Conversely, don’t book on a Friday, even if the martini told you to.)

●Reserve more than 21 days in advance. Sample savings: Book early, and you could pay $1,462 for a European holiday; wait too long, and the price spikes to $2,226.

Include a Saturday-night stay in your itinerary. (Exceptions to the rule: China and North Asia.)

Travel during low season: Expedia says to visit Africa, North America and the Caribbean in January; the Middle East in February; and the Asia-Pacific region in June. The company’s data also discovered the best months to nab a low economy fare: January for trips to Southeast Asia, February for Australia and September for Europe.

The year 2017 isn’t just the Year of the Rooster. According to an Enterprise survey, it might also be the End of the Staycation.

Your resolution just let out a cheer.
