Travelocity’s Guide to Fourth of July Travel Savings
I love a good infographic. Don’t you? And when it comes Fourth of July travel, this infographic’s got everything you need to know to score the best deal! Here are the key things to keep in mind:
- For the best deals book your Fourth of July travel this week where the average domestic airfare is $342. Fare will steadily rise each following week.
- The averge domestic airfare is up six percent over last year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find a deal on a cheap getaway. For the best deals, try traveling the weekend before the holiday (which falls on a Wednesday this year). This could save you as much as $235!
- Bundle your fight and hotel booking into a vacation package to save as much as $525 on your booking, or use Top Secret Hotels to save.
My most beloved place in the whole world is: The Motherland, Italy. I never could have predicted how intense my love for Italy would become or how much I would revel in speaking the language. I've probably visited close to 100 Italian cities by now and I never tire of it. Need Italy tips? I'm your gal. Greatest travel lesson learned: You are your best company. I wish more people realized that. Traveling with large groups is fun, but the thrill of landing in a foreign city alone with no rules or schedules to abide by is pure adrenaline. Fondest travel memory: One of my fondest, sweetest memories was meeting my new in-laws for the first time after a 16-hour road trip from Montenegro to Belgrade. It was three in the morning and they were wide awake with anticipation, sitting at the kitchen table with traditional Serbian meats and a glass of red wine for me. A warm welcome, indeed. First thing I do in a new place: Follow the scent of a fresh-roasted bean and head to the nearest, most local-yocal coffee shop. A quick shot of caffeine, a chat with a few locals and then it's off to the races. First thing I do when I get home: Kiss my dachshund, Vucko, then pour over all the photos I've taken. Then wish I could do it all over again. Travel ambition: To inspire more people to get out of their cubicles and into the world.
