Don’t get caught without Vacation plans! Just 2 days ago, I had a new client call me for an All-Inclusive vacation for his family of four – wife & 2 sons, with Charter air. The dates for travel were March 13th – 20th, and today is February 28th. I already knew that there would not be charter flights available, but I still did the search, in hopes of finding something, that maybe had been canceled. No luck. Needless to say, this family was disappointed.
That brings me to Vacation Dates for this year, 2015. It is always difficult to plan far out in advance, but if it means disappointment without finding any vacation plans? Not to mention that better pricing and availability are, most often, when there is availability. Sure, there are those last minute deals, but that works better for a single person or, maybe a couple that can be flexible.
- So, here are the dates for the remainder of 2015:
- March 17th – St Patrick’s Day: This year SPD falls on Tuesday. You can celebrate “wearing of the green” in many cities…NYC, New Orleans, and Savannah.
- March 3 – 11 Passover: Begins the eve of April 3 and continues for 7 or 8 days.
- April 5th – Easter Sunday: This religious holiday follows, or precedes Spring Break for many High Schools and Colleges.
- May 10th – Mother’s Day: Some ideas would be a Spa Getaway, or Cruise to celebrate all that Moms & Grandmothers do for our families.
- May 25th – Memorial Day: Summer vacation plans need to be in place by Memorial Day! Consider a family vacation to a Multi-Generational Resort, or family resort, where everyone can join in the fun and sun.
- June 21st – Father’s Day: Plan this trip with around the interests for your Dad and/or Grandfather. How about a cruise to the family’s homeland or places they would like to visit?
- July 4th – USA Celebration: July 4th falls on a Saturday, and most businesses turn this into a 3 day weekend holiday. Don’t let it get by you without plans!
- Sept. 7th – Monday, Labor Day: This year, since it’s later, you’ll have an extra week of summer. Consider a GetAWay to celebrate the last days of S.
- November 26th – Thanksgiving, Thursday: This is an incredibly busy holiday, so obviously, there is extreme need for planning. Clients that want to travel at the end of November, will pay high prices due to the Thanksgiving return travel on November 29 & 30th.
- December 6th – Sunday, Hanukkah: This holiday starts 10 days earlier than last year, and continues for 8 days until Dec. 14th.
- December 24th – Christmas Eve, Christmas Day: Consider a long weekend, pre-planned for holiday surprise!
- December 31st – New Year’s Eve: More holiday surprise by starting the New Year in a fun, unexpected way.
