Summer holidays are gone. Bring on the weekend breaks…
Summer might be officially over, but just because the sun is lower in the sky, it doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. These days, it seems, summer lasts forever.
If you’re lucky enough to live in a place where the sun shines all year round, then you’ll know what we mean. But even if you don’t, we're blessed to live in an age where places that were once exotic (and barely reached in a lifetime) are now accessible all year round. As we come out of an 18 months that was quite unlike any that any of us have seen in our lifetimes, our right to travel was curtailed. Annual holidays were postponed or changed. Weekend breaks became impractical due to entry requirements, quarantine restrictions and no flights. Domestic tourism saw a resurgence in popularity.
But thankfully, as the virus is brought under control and restrictions are reduced, the short break is back with a vengeance. According to industry sources, there’s going to be a surge in overseas travel, driven by the pent-up demand and broken dreams left in the wake of our crisis. Talk to any of the budget airline providers and they’re all expecting a massive surge in the coming months.
Weekend breaks are back
In the US, the city break is set for a big comeback - and destinations such as New York and San Francisco will be at the top of many people’s hitlist. But many others will be making up for lost time in warm weather destinations. From Miami Beach to Mexico and from Hawaii to the Caribbean, American’s will be packing their bags for impromptu breaks - and there are plenty of warm weather options for them to extend their summer. And, if you’re going away, there are two things you’ll need to bear in mind. Pack light and always look good.
