Whether you’re dreaming of a warm beach trip or a tour of a sophisticated European city, we have you covered.
Check out these top tips for traveling this spring from AAA travel advisors.
Top Tips for Spring Travel
Travel to Europe. Springtime in Europe usually means fewer crowds and a strong dollar. Plus, it’s not as hot. Why wait for summer when you could go now?
Explore with Club Adventures. Looking for a enriching vacation with family or your closest group of friends? Check out Club Adventures by AAA, where you can explore exotic destinations through a local lens in small groups. Their commitment to sustainable travel, local guides and authentic experiences make each tour unique and unforgettable.
Book theme park visits in advance. Whether it’s your first time or an annual family trip, remember that theme parks are getting busier now that families are comfortable traveling again. Many theme parks also have fluctuating rules about when guests have to reserve spaces in advance. Book your vacation before it’s too late. An experienced AAA travel advisor can help keep you up-to-date on theme park news and make sure you can fit in as much magic as possible.
Hit the high seas. Cruising is back and bigger than ever. Record-breaking sales and gargantuan ships means you can enjoy activities like go carts, waterslides, roller coasters and ziplining. Plus, there are numerous types of cruises, from big Caribbean cruise ships to intimate European river cruises.
Protect your investment with travel insurance. Flight delays, cancellations and other travel mishaps can come with unexpected expenses. It would also be wise to add baggage insurance and coverage for non-refundable expenses.
Go all-inclusive. If you’re looking for a vacation with the best value, try an all-inclusive package. They can be especially cost-effective for families.
I love to highlight all-inclusive packages to warm destinations like the Dominican Republic and Mexico where families can escape for a quick getaway. These packages are as low as $348 per person and include kid’s clubs, so there are plenty of fun activities for children and parents can relax. Cruises also include food, drinks and entertainment!”Anne Lischwe, AAA Northeast Travel Sales Manager
