In years past Thanksgiving was the big travel week in the U.S., but this year, according to American Express Travel agents, most people are planning a vacation for the week between Christmas and New Year's, not Thanksgiving weekend. So if you experienced a busy and successful Thanksgiving weekend, you're sure to have an even busier period to come!
It's not just family that travellers are taking off to see, 76% of travel agents reported that more customers than ever before are planning luxury vacations for their holiday travels this year. Families with children are taking advantage of school being out. Couples are using their vacation days to "get away from it all" or simply because they want to celebrate the holiday season by doing something new and exciting.
