Summer Travel Week

Welcome to Thrifty Traveler’s Summer Travel Week for 2023!

Winter is in the rearview mirror and spring break season is wrapping up, which means summer isn't far away. It's time to start thinking about your summer travel plans, and we're here to help: Introducing Thrifty Traveler's first-ever Summer Travel Week. 

To make sure you're ready for the summer travel season, we're devoting our coverage this week (from Monday, April 10 through Friday, April 15) to all things summer travel. From our best summer flight deals to the best travel tips to survive what's sure to be a hectic stretch of travel to our guides to planning the perfect road trip – and much, much more – we're doling out all of our best advice so you can dial in your summer trip before it's too late.

Why now, you ask? Well, according to some analysis from Google Flights, the best time to book summer flights to get the lowest fare is between 14 and 44 days before you plan to travel, with the sweetest spot coming around 21 days out. That means if you're trying to start your summer trip around June 1, the ideal window is coming up quickly. Our Summer Travel Week is designed to help you get all your ducks in a row so you're ready to book and plan when the time is right.

So what should you do to get ready for Summer Travel Week 2023? We're glad you asked:

  • Follow along here at ThriftyTraveler.com every day starting Monday to see all of our Summer Travel Week stories – or just bookmark this page, where we'll keep a running list of all of our Summer Travel Week stories.



The timing couldn't be better, either. Unlike last year when summer flight prices skyrocketed, we've been seeing signs that flight prices are dropping across the country and even to some international destinations. That's right: Your summer 2023 trip is back on – at least if you know where to look. We'll show you some of our favorite deals for summer travel, and also peel back the curtain to tell you where we're going, how we're booking it, and how we're getting there for our own personal travels this summer.

If you or someone you know has ruled out traveling this summer due to high prices or for fear of potential travel mishaps, it's time to reassess. Travel is back in 2023 and it's going to be a great year to get out there.

On Monday, we'll start with a breakdown of summer flight pricing trends, and give you an idea of what to expect at airports and on planes this summer. Tuesday, we're going to showcase some of the best summer travel flight deals we've found, give you advice on how to deal with or avoid flight disruptions, and show you the best ways to plan and save on a weekend trip this summer, too. And, that's just a taste of what we have in store.
