New York, NY (PRWEB) July 15, 2013
Leading online travel agency CheapOair.com today revealed its most booked summer destinations. Noting a year over year price increase for roundtrip airfare to several American cities, CheapOair is helping customers maximize their vacations by sharing data illustrating lower prices to popular destinations abroad, providing them with the opportunity to plan trips that will offer stronger value for their money.
The data shows roundtrip tickets under $1,000 to cosmopolitan cities including London and Paris, the beaches of San Juan and Cancun, and the culture, cuisine and Chianti of Rome, making this summer and ideal time to take an aspirational trip abroad.
With roundtrip airfare to New York averaging nearly $500, travelers may instead wish to upgrade their getaway by visiting Paris instead, with roundtrip airfare to the City of Lights having decreased by five percent to around $900. Customers seeking a vacation in Orlando will pay ten percent more than last summer, and could instead spent $50 more for a ticket to the beaches in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
