It’s that time of year when families and spontaneous travelers start to look up those last-minute flights and hotels for a spring break vacation. We get it- we’re sick of the snow, too! We’ve been stuck inside since November and have only seen white our windows for months. It can be stressful to piece these plans together with little time to spare, but we have a few tips for you:

Be flexible

Let’s face it. Most of the top-rated hotels in Mexico have been booked for spring break for months. You will spend many frustrating hours on the phone to be told they do not have any openings. If you can be adaptable with your destination and accommodations, you will be far less stressed and can open the possibility of traveling to somewhere new!

Consider traveling mid-week

You will be surprised how many flight options will open up when you decide to travel on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. Not only are airports far less busy these days, but you will also save money on your tickets. This small change offers a great alternative to getting to your favorite destination.

Look at more than hotels

Booking hotels can be challenging when it’s so close to your departure, but there are so many useful travel apps and websites that provide affordable alternative accommodations. Look at rentals through Airbnb, Tripping, and FlipKey to research the neighborhoods and get the best price!

Use an experienced travel agent

The best way to have these plans settled quickly? Work with a knowledgeable travel agent. Experienced professionals will help you find great deals with reliable, quality vendors around the world and are focused on making your travel experience better than ever.
