Traveling during the holidays adds a sense of adventure to traditional holiday plans. Yes, it’s more expensive to travel during the holidays, but it’s worth it. With a bit of research and planning, holiday travelers can take advantage of cheaper hotel rooms and inexpensive flights.
Why not opt for a holiday winter vacation this year? The following tips will help to keep any upcoming trips within budget and full of winter fun.

1. Toronto, Ontario, Canada

According to Kayak, Toronto is one of the most affordable destinations this holiday season. While it is quite cold during the winter in Canada, there are many things to do indoors. With PATH, travelers can visit the city’s hotels, subways, and retailers, all without going above ground.

When considering a trip to Toronto, the prices are unbeatable. Lower than the average for flights in North America, tickets to Toronto are generally under $271.

2. Boston, MA

Anyone that is a fan of winter sports should consider traveling to Boston during the holidays. In Boston, it’s easy to catch the Bruins and Celtics playing games downtown. Moreover, there are a lot of historical sights to see in Boston that are incredible underneath the holiday lights.

Flights to Boston are quite low. Dropping from December’s $264 to January’s $201, anyone planning a winter getaway on a budget should consider Boston.

3. Orlando, Fl

Orlando is an excellent destination at all times of the year, but during the winter, it’s particularly pleasant. Temperatures in Orlando at this time are likely in the mid-70s, which is unbelievably low for the winter. Additionally, there are many sights to see in the city of Orlando (in addition to Disney World and Universal Studios).

Flights to Orlando come in at lows of $172, which is quite a steal considering the prices of other flights during the holiday season. Hotel rooms generally run around $150, which is quite low as well.

4. Las Vegas, Nevada

Traveling to Sin City for the holidays? While it may not be conventional, it is a great idea. Daytime temperatures typically drop to 60 degrees, making the winter weather particularly enjoyable. Spend time roaming the glitzy tourist attractions or visit historic landscapes like Death Valley National Park and Red Rock Canyon.

Prices for a trip to Las Vegas are an average of $166–one of the lowest fares during the holiday season.

Have some fun this winter. Take your pick in destination and board a flight this holiday season.
