Expedia says their search data indicates upcoming fall travel will be up 40 percent from last year as Americans are wanting to get out of the house and travel.
Expedia also said that U.S. travelers are likely to travel abroad to locations such as London, Munich and Barbados.
Booking site Hopper and other travel portals are saying fall airfares are looking to drop by as much as 40 percent and this will also spur travelers to book flights and trips.
"Fall is right around the corner, and while many are looking forward to breaking out their favorite boots and pumpkin bread recipes, autumn also means big travel savings," said Christie Hudson, head of U.S. public relations for Expedia. "Many destinations are more affordable than they've been in months, making it the perfect time to have an authentic Oktoberfest experience in Munich or swap out the faux foliage for the real deal in New England."
Expedia is recommending the following when booking tickets and planning travel:
- Travel the week of September 26th as ticket prices could be as much as 45% cheaper than they were in the summer.
- The week of October 10th is the 'sweet spot' for international travel as prices will be 20 percent lower than in summer.
- Depart on a Tuesday or a Wednesday.
