While some travelers are enchanted by winter and its snow-covered charms, others look to escape the season altogether in search of sun and sand. If you’re looking for some inspiration for your winter getaway, U.S. News and World Report put together a list of the best winter destinations for every type of traveler.

Tips / Travel

If you feel stuck in the winter doldrums, just remember there are a few long weekends to look forward to that can break up the monotony and get you back into the travel swing.

 

Google is stepping in to help trip planners with their getaways by cluing travelers into the best deals and destinations during holiday periods. Google’s data based on bookings from past years indicate there may be a financial benefit to waiting until the last minute to book: Prices in 2018 dropped nine days before MLK Day and the best deals were found to winter destinations.

 

Another tip for saving on airfare is to tack on one day before or after the long weekend so you’re not flying out or back with everyone else. Fares can be about 31 percent cheaper and you’ll only lose one vacation day.

 

Those seeking warmer destinations and travel dates during the spring may want to book earlier, though, as prices begin to rise approximately 36 days before departure. Using Google Flights to explore the best options lets you play around with dates and destinations. Remember, flexibility will often yield the best results.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
