TODAY IN GOING PLACES,
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, NOW IS A
GREAT TIME TO GET A HEAD START
ON HOLIDAY TRAVEL.
JOYING US IS SENIOR EDITOR AT
TRAVEL ZOO.
GOOD MORNING, GABE.
HEY, MARY GOOD TO TALK TO
YOU.
I CAN'T EVEN BELIEVE IT IS
TIME TO PLAN FOR NOVEMBER AND
DECEMBER TRAVEL.
TELL US.
ABSOLUTELY.
WE ARE JUST INTO AUTUMN AND NOW
IT'S TIME TO START THINKING
ABOUT FLYING.
WE'RE SEEING NO CLUES THAT AIR
FLAIR IS GOING TO BE COMING DOWN
BETWEEN NOW AND THANKSGIVING.
IT IS ALREADY TRENDING 6% HIGHER
THAN IT WAS LAST YEAR.
IF YOU ARE NOT THAT FLEXIBLE
WITH WHEN YOU CAN FLY, YOU HAVE
TO FLY OUT TUESDAY OR WEDNESDAY
BEFORE THANK GIVING, AND SOME
BACK THE SUNDAY AFTER, YOU HAVE
TO BUY YOUR AIRFARE NOW.
IF YOU ARE TRAVELING FOR
CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEARS, IT'S
TIME TO START COMPARING, AND I
WOULD LOCK THAT IN IN THE NEXT
THREE TO FOUR WEEKS.
PEOPLE SHOULD START BOOKING
THOSE TRIPS.
LET'S START TALKING ABOUT THE
SPOTS.
THE GOOD NEWS IS ON THE
[ INAUDIBLE ] A LOT OF THESE
RESORTS ARE OFFERING GREAT
DECEMBER NEIGHS.
MAINE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE.
THE NORTHEAST DESTINATIONS WILL
GO UP IN PRICE AS WE HIT THE SKI
SEASON.
THERE'S THE YORK HARBOR INN, IN
MAINE.
A BEAUTIFUL GET AWAY ON THE
WATER.
RATES DOWN TO $69 PER MONTH FOR
TWO.
PRICES ARE EXPECTED TO GO UP
CHRISTMAS WEEK AND BEYOND.
THAT LOOKS GORGEOUS.
NOW ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES TO
HEAD FOR THE HOLIDAYS IS
NEW YORK.
AND I HEAR THERE ARE DEALS.
YEAH, ANY BIG CITY, NEW YORK
CITY, CHICAGO WILL BE SEEING
MAJOR SALES OVER THE SEASON.
YOU AND I ARE GOING HOME FOR THE
HOLIDAYS AND SO ALL OF A SUDDEN
THESE PLACES HAVE A LOT OF
AVAILABILITY.
THIS IS A HOTEL OPENED LAST
YEAR, IT'S PART OF THE JAPANESE
EDGY, HIGH-TECH HOTEL.
RATES DROPPING TO 169 FOR THE
THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS
PERIOD, AND DROPS DOWN TO 129
AFTER THE FIRST OF ANY YEAR FOR
JANUARY AND FEBRUARY TRAVEL.
FOR A CITY LIKE NEW YORK THAT'S
REGULARLY RATHER HIGH TOTEL
PRICES, THE HOLIDAY SEASON WILL
BRING SOME GREAT DEALS.
I ALSO HEARD THERE IS A DEAL
IN PRAGUE.
EUROPE GETS EXPENSIVE OVER
THE SUMMER MONTHS, BUT IF YOU
ARE LOOKING AT A GET AWAY FOR
THANKSGIVING, ANY INTERNATIONAL
DESIGNATION THAT DOES NOT
CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING LIKE WE
DO HERE IN THE STATES WILL OFFER
REALLY ATTRACTIVE DEALS.
THIS IS A PACKAGE WITH A
SIX-NIGHT STAY IN PRAGUE FOR
1125.
YOU GET BREAKFAST DAILY WITH THE
DEAL.
IT'S FROM A COMPANY CALLED GO
TODAY.
THE STORY HERE IS, PARTICULARLY
IF YOU CAN LEAVE ON SAY THE
WEDNESDAY OR THURSDAY BEFORE
THANKSGIVING, YOU CAN FIND
REALLY NICE BARGAINS.
GABE I MAY NEED TO GO
SOMEWHERE WARM.
CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THE PORTE
PLAZA DEAL?
YES, STARTING RIGHT AROUND
CHRISTMAS INTO THE FIRST NEW
MONTHS OF THE YEAR, PRICES WILL
GO UP IN THE CARIBBEAN.
THIS IS A PLACE IN THE DOMINICAN
REPUBLIC, IT IS ALL INCLUSIVE,
AND DOWN TO $39 PER PERSON PER
NIGHT.
A COUPLE CAN STAY HERE AND EAT
AND DRINK ALL YOU WANT FOR ABOUT
$78 A NIGHT.
AIR FLAIR WILL BE ABOUT 6 TO 700
PER PERSON.
BUT ON THE GROUND, BECAUSE THERE
IS JUST A LOT OF COMPETITION,
WE'RE SEEING SOME VERY GOOD
DEALS BETWEEN NOW AND ABOUT
MID-DECEMBER.
LOOKS GREAT.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
THANKS VERY MUCH, MARY AND
HAPPY HOLIDAYS.
