CheapOair, a flight-focused hybrid travel agency, announced its top 10 destinations for Memorial Day weekend.

The most-booked domestic Memorial Day weekend destination is Orlando, Fla., followed by Las Vegas and New York City. While Orlando is most popular, it is not the most affordable on the list. Rather, Fort Lauderdale took its spot as most affordable Memorial Day weekend destination, with an average round-trip airfare of $275, an 11 percent decrease in price from last year. The only destination among the top 10 to experience an increase in price over last year is Denver, Colo. Overall, domestic airfares are down an average of 5 percent.

The most popular international destination for Memorial Day weekend is London, followed by Cancun, Rome, Paris and Guadalajara. Overall, average international round-trip airfare increased by 2 percent this year, though some destinations experienced impressive decreases in cost, as much as 19 percent.

“Despite the unusually low fares we’ve seen during the early part of 2018, travelers should expect prices for Memorial Day to be on par with previous years,” said Tom Spagnola, senior vice president supplier relations, CheapOair. “Average airfares, international and domestic combined, are only expected to be about 2 percent lower compared to 2017. The sooner you can book your flights, the more likely it is that you’ll find a decent price.”

“The added capacity in the market has made this a great year for finding amazing deals on airfare,” added Sam S. Jain, founder and CEO, CheapOair. “However, due to the heavy demand for travel over the long weekend, consumers should try to book their flights as early as possible. Basic economy fares have a limited number of seats, so if you are looking for those extremely low prices, flexibility around when you book and when you travel will be essential.”

Amantaka Review

You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
