Tips that can save you up to 57 percent.
If you haven't made your plans to go over the river and
through the woods this holiday season, it's not too late.
With these tips, you
might even find some great bargains.
Skip the beach This is a great time to take the family on an urban
adventure.
"Because most travelers think of resort destinations for the
holidays," says Jon Gray, HomeAway's chief revenue officer, "prices in cities
tend to drop." In San Francisco, two- and three-bedroom listings (all rated
four or five stars by HomeAway users) during Christmas week average
$219.
Similar places in Chicago go for $293.
Even warm-weather cities can be a
bargain.
Last Christmas, hotels in San Diego averaged $136 a night, 33 percent
less than in the summer, according to Trivago; L.A.
hotels cost $185, about 9
percent less than during the summer.
Pop your cork Want to get away for New Year's? Skip crowded,
ball-dropping New York City (where rooms average $432, according to STR) and
try Celebrate San Antonio, a free festival of spicy food, live music, and
riverside pyrotechnics.
Hotel rooms average $174 a night.
In Seattle, the
fireworks burst over the Space Needle, and hotels go for $190 a night,
according to Hotels.com.
Be flexible about when you fly To snag a hefty airfare deal, you usually
have to book months in advance, but there are ways to save on late bookings
too, says Adam Goldstein, co-founder and CEO of Hipmunk.
The key: Fly when
most people won't.
For instance, don't go on Dec.
23, when prices are 5
percent to 6 percent higher than those on Dec.
24, Goldstein suggests.
And
flying Dec.
21 (a Monday) can lead to a savings of up to 30 percent, according
to fare predictor Hopper.
Traveling on New Year's Eve or Jan.
1 may save you
25 percent on what it would cost a few days later.
Go between the holidays If you're set on a popular tropical getaway,
going between Thanksgiving and Christmas can pay off.
Orlando is the most
popular Christmas destination for Americans, according to Orbitz, but rooms at
the plush Waldorf Astoria Orlando start at $199 from Dec.
8 to 21.
The price
on Dec.
22: $369.
In Aruba, rooms at the 355-room Hilton Aruba start at $199 a
night before Dec.
23, 45 percent less than Christmas-week rates.
You'll find
deals between Christmas and New Year's too: $71 a night on average in Las
Vegas, and $89 in New Orleans on Hotwire.com.
