2009 travel predictions

As the economy and oil prices stabilize travel marketers will offer incredibly low offers as they attempt to capture your discretionary dollar.

2009 will be the year of TRAVEL BARGAINS. I expect prices to be comparable to rates 15 to 20 years ago. Cruises, tour packages and hotel rooms should lead the way in discounted offerings.

Do a quick check of how much of an income tax refund you’ll be receiving and take that dream trip. Quit earning ½% interest and take the cash out of your savings account then pay for the trip of a life time.

Happy travels
