2. Airfare deals require sleuthing
The biggest savings are in accommodations and package vacations—not airfare. “Flights on regular scheduled airlines tend to increase in price the closer to departure you get, so last minute deals on flights are rare,” says Simpson. But keep your eyes peeled and you may score the odd savings bonanza. “Some tour operators sell last-minute deals on charter flights, mainly to sun destinations. We’ve seen operators offer last-minute charter airfares to Florida for as low as $29 roundtrip, plus taxes and fees, and to Mexico for as low as $55 roundtrip, plus taxes and fees. Of course, taxes can often be in excess of $340, but even so, that’s a significant savings,” says Simpson.
These Mexican destinations offer unforgettable locations and hidden gems that can’t be found anywhere else.
