Despite a climate of political and health-related fear globally, air travel rates are currently up for 2020. Dandashy said “people still want to escape winter into warm getaways.” Listing popular warm-weather destinations, Dandashy noted international locations like Mexico, The Bahamas, and Jamaica are favored this year.
“How much we see whether it’s in film or TV, it actually affects where we want to travel to,” Dandashy pointed out, especially referring to Jamaica as it is featured in an upcoming James Bond movie. Another “interesting choice people are making,” Dandashy said, is London and the United Kingdom.
As for domestic destinations for spring break travel, Orlando is the number one trend. People are “looking for theme park capital of the world,” Dandashy highlighted. Other popular domestic destinations include Phoenix, Los Angeles, New York City, Ft. Lauderdale, and more. Dandashy talked about her own great experiences traveling to Florida for spring break as a child.
“Take advantage of your spring break,” advised Dandashy, even offering the advice to “take a staycation,” to those who can’t travel far or for a lengthy time this year. The “notion of spring break shouldn’t die with getting out of school,” she also advised working professionals without children. Even if it’s just a long weekend, Dandashy said, there are “so many ways to travel and explore…it’s quite refreshing.”
