“Experience Low Prices and No Shortage of Boomers This Holiday Season!

As the holiday season approaches, travelers can expect to experience cheap flights, packed hotels, and an increase in Boomer travelers. The combination of factors could make this year’s holiday travel a bit more challenging. Fingers crossed that airlines don’t overbook and that hotels can provide amenities without a significantly shorter stay. For starters, travelers will likely find some good deals when it comes to flights. The fall of 2020 was a particularly difficult time for the airline industry, prompting them to provide incentives to get people flying again. This includes discounted tickets, more flexible ticket-change policies, and better chances of securing a seat on a full flight. Airlines are hoping that holiday travelers, especially those whose plans were affected by the pandemic, will take advantage of the deals. The harder part may be finding a place to stay. Hotels have seen a significant decrease in occupancy rates, as people largely canceled their travel plans over the past few months. However, as the holidays approach, occupancy rates are expected to increase. Many hotels are offering discounts and special deals that incentivize travelers, but there’s likely to be a higher chance of overcrowding, too. Finally, travelers should expect to see a lot of senior citizens out and about. The Boomer population has been particularly resilient when it comes to pandemic-related travel restrictions, taking advantage of offers like extended vacation packages or retired persons’ discounts. This means that, in addition to long lines at airports, travelers will also likely have to vie for limited spaces at restaurants, attractions, and other popular destinations—all of which could complicate an otherwise smooth holiday getaway. Overall, travelers hoping for a fun and stress-free holiday should prepare for cheap flight costs, potential hotel overcrowding, and an influx of senior travelers. With the right mindset and enough research, everyone can still enjoy a good holiday experience.
