Time flies towards the end of the year and the period between the fall and the holiday season can quickly become booked. Even though it isn't even October yet, anyone expecting executive or personal travel over the holidays should think about their plans now.
Those flying for work should look for low business travel costs in advance. Multiple travel experts are advising flyers to start researching now, because, as always, airline space is a precious commodity around that time of year.
A piece in the Columbus Dispatch quoted local travel agent Rob Elking on the way that peak travel affects holiday prices. As such, the Thanksgiving and Christmas weeks are prime times for workers to fall back on private plane solutions that help them avoid the crush of crowded major airplanes.
"They're the two busiest weeks of the year, and you better book early or there won't be any seats left," he said. "Those last 10 tickets on a flight might be $200 or $300 more. That's where their profitability comes in."
Writing for Forbes, Michelle Maynard has similar advice for travelers, saying that they should think far enough ahead to take the necessary time off for an easy commute. She writes that some people take the entire week off for a vacation, as well as to avoid paying for tickets on the days where the holiday price hikes. She also said that some travelers will refrain from flying until the day after Christmas to make the trip easier.
Whether business or pleasure, charter an airplane for a holiday excursion to make sure things don't get too hectic later on.
