With high ticket prices, unprecedented delays, strikes and other issues, traveling this summer has not been fun. However, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. According to travel experts, flight prices are expected to drop during the back-to-school season this fall.
With many people curtailing all of their travel during the pandemic, this summer has been the busiest on record. However, if you’re someone who’s been putting off that big trip due to travel issues in the last few months, you might be in luck. “Airlines really take off in the spring,” said Scott Keyes, founder of Scott’s Cheap Flights, in an interview with ABC News. [They] It rose 12 percent in March, 19 percent in April, and another 12 percent in May. But the good news: In the last inflation report, airfares dropped 2 percent, and I think they’ll drop even more in the next one.
So if you’re hoping to get to one of your bucket list destinations this year, now’s the time to start planning the trip (but wait a few more weeks to book the flight!).
On the bright side, aside from the delays and problems at airports this summer, the travel world is full of good news for 2022, an exciting change of pace for the industry.
Many new hotels and resorts have recently opened, including the beautiful Five Zurich. This expansion of Dubai-based brand FIVE Hotels & Resorts is bringing its signature approach to hospitality and nightlife to Europe’s iconic destinations.
Opened a few weeks ago, Five Zurich is bringing the party to Switzerland. There are seven dining and nightlife venues on the property and several types of rooms and suites designed for groups traveling together.
All of the hotel’s 87 rooms and suites come with city skyline views or mountain views, elegant contemporary design and signature linens and toiletries. But for groups looking to party all night long, the “Come Play” and “Four Bedroom” suites are the room types to book. Both offer private balconies and plenty of space to keep the party going as long as you and your friends want.
Grab all your party buddies and if they didn’t make you a European summer revenge tour, book one for the fall – once the flight prices drop a bit!
