Why You Should Travel RIGHT NOW in this Bad Economy

ANA B777 (y)Class

We all know that the economy sucks right now.  Our financial system is in shambles and many of us are losing our jobs and can’t pay mortgages.

The times are tough.

Unless you are a traveler.  If you aren’t being affected too much by the current economic situation, you might want to check out some travel deals that are being offered.

I’ve never been one to book a package deal with air and hotel bundled together, but if you’re traveling with somebody there have been quite a few good deals but they require a two-person minimum purchase.  Often that makes it not such a good deal when you factor in the hotel cost so be sure to pay attention to that.

But for the traveler who is just looking for great airfare deals, there are plenty at the moment.  Here are a few I’ve found recently (all prices include taxes and fees):

  • Los Angeles to Honolulu - $335 round trip on Hawaiian Air.  American Airlines, United and Delta are just slightly higher.
  • Los Angeles to Maui - $415 round trip on American Airlines.
  • Los Angeles to Sydney or Brisbane, Australia - $680 round trip all the way through October on United.
  • Los Angeles to Paris - $590 round trip on United or Air France (I really like Air France!) through May.
  • Los Angeles to San Jose, Costa Rica - $350-$450 round trip all summer long.

I’m sure there are plenty of similar fares from most major airports.  I highly recommend Kayak to search for flights.

    Sad but true. Recession is the best time for people not affected by the recession or saved up during prosperous times!

    I do agree that if you are still in a position to take a holiday then there are some amazing deals to be had right now. My advice would be to go for it – ensure you still get the most for your money – but don’t ever stop exploring!
