Since October, the US has been hit by 14 named winter storms. The frigid temperatures have had an interesting impact on the travel industry, leading to high demand for flights and rooms in warm-weather destinations such as the Caribbean and Mexico. BookIt.com, a major seller of all-inclusive resort vacations, is now advising guests that inventory may soon run out during some peak date ranges.

“Some hotels are already sold out for the peak winter period and others are getting tight,” said Laura Veglia, Vice President of Sales for BookIt.com. “There are still some great deals to be had, but we recommend that our guests book now to avoid higher rates on both the hotel and the air.”

The surge in demand for warm weather vacations has left the company’s Market Managers -- the representatives that work in destination to procure special rates and inventory-- scrambling to ensure that they have enough product to meet the demands of customers.

“President’s Day weekend kicks off the high season in Mexico and this beautiful season only lasts until the beginning of April,” said Karina Varela, BookIt.com’s Regional Director of Mexico and Latin America. “Having such a short season when people from around the world want to visit Mexico, hotel room availability becomes very challenging, plus airfare can be very expensive if you wait until last minute to go.”

The message is clear. If you plan on escaping the cold this winter, you might want to think twice about procrastinating. BookIt.com is currently offering guests savings of over 40 percent off at newly all-inclusive rooms at the Melia Nassau Beach Resort in the Bahamas, with rates from only $179 per person per night for winter travel, including all meals, drinks, tips, taxes and fees. Plus, guests will receive an additional $300 flight credit for flight-inclusive vacation packages of four nights or more. BookIt.com is also offering savings in Mexico and Latin America for winter and spring travel. Save half off at the all-inclusive Grand Sunset Princess All-Suites Resort in Mexico’s Playa del Carmen, with rates from only $149 per person per night, plus a free upgrade to a deluxe suite.
