Why You Should Book Your 4th of July Travel Right Now

published on April 28, 2021 by

The last couple weeks have been abuzz with news that travel is beginning to open up again. After the CDC relaxed travel guidelines on April 2, spring break travel has spiked in numbers across airlines and booking sites alike.

Though it will take some time for the travel industry to fully recover from pandemic setbacks, it seems that travelers who have been itching to leave their homes for the last several months are not prepared to wait. Industry experts have been predicting a ‘post-pandemic travel surge’ since the virus first hit in the spring of 2020. According to projections, that surge will be in full force by this summer.

Long story short, it’s a good idea to start planning your 4th of July vacation now, because there may not be much leftover for last-minute bookers. RedWeek.com has already begun to experience a surge of bookings in the last several weeks, and our inventory will likely be scooped up by the holiday!
