CheapOair, a leading flights-focused, next generation concierge travel service consisting of a traditional travel agency with a digital front end, announced today the top ten domestic and international destinations its consumers are traveling to for Labor Day Weekend. This year’s data shows that the most popular vacation spots include many of the same cities visited last year, including Dallas, Denver, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Fort Lauderdale, Chicago and Orlando, while also showing that there are still airfare deals to be found for each.

“Many of the top destinations from 2015 are once again on the short list of the must travel-to cities for Labor Day weekend this year,” said Thomas Spagnola, Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations at CheapOair. “Nine out of ten domestic destinations have a roundtrip fare of under $300, showing that this is an ideal time to take advantage of low prices on airfare.”

CheapOair’s data also highlighted interesting findings, including that because lead time for bookings has decreased, airfare prices have decreased as well – which is great news for the spontaneous traveler. “This year, we’ve seen an increase in last minute bookings within 10 – 20 days before the consumer’s travel dates due to a decrease in fares,” added Spagnola.

Domestically, this year’s top city for Labor Day Weekend travel is Las Vegas, with an average roundtrip ticket price of $280, which is down 3 percent from last year. Orlando and Denver are runner up and third place on the list, both decreasing almost 10 percent in price. Fort Lauderdale had the lowest prices available, with a roundtrip flight priced at $229, which is a whopping 39 percent price decrease from last year. Time to hit those South Florida beaches!

For international destinations, Cancun continues to stay at the top of the list as the number one vacation spot consumers are visiting, with the airfare price down 9 percent from this time last year. Punta Cana saw a price increase of 8 percent, but still came in ranked as the number two destination where travelers want to be for the weekend. Additionally, according to the data, San Juan had the lowest prices available, with a roundtrip costing $345.
