Smart Consumer Series: How to Find Hidden Summer Travel Bargains

What you need to know to find the best vacation deals


Memorial Day is just around the corner and your thoughts are likely turning to a burning question: “How am I going to spend my summer vacation?” According to a recent survey from Bankrate, just over half of all respondents said they’re planning on taking a trip this summer, and those who are traveling will spend an average of $1,979.

Staying within your budget depends on how much value you can squeeze out of those travel dollars you’ve saved up. And this year, experts say, a combination of factors have combined to create a favorable outlook. In fact, airfares from the U.S. to Europe for the peak months of June, July, and August are the lowest they’ve been in three years, according to Hopper’s most recent search data, which showed transatlantic tickets averaging $909 round trip, versus $926 last year.
