It also appears many consumers have delayed making their decision to travel, as is evidenced by an increase in 7-day internet search numbers, as compared to 28-day search figures.
“Our hypothesis is that consumers are making their decisions to travel closer to their actual desired date, to better assess the status of COVID-related restrictions and regulations at their chosen destination,” says Sam S. Jain, CEO and Founder of Fareportal, the company behind online travel agencies CheapOair and One Travel. He continues, “Each of the cities on our top 5 list are classic destinations that represent an opportunity for an enjoyable, and COVID-aware, Valentine’s Weekend getaway.“
Please note: With COVID-19 still prevalent, be sure to check local and international travel regulations and notices for any restrictions, rules, and safety guidelines that may be in place. For additional information please visit the CDC website for up-to-date health and wellness information.
