Still Not To Late to Book Last Minute Hotel for the Holidays ... If You Know Where to Look!
Well, now you don't have to. The Deal Experts at Travelzoo Canada have managed to score a wide variety of vacation options at affordable, and often discounted, prices.“Finding good hotel deals for Christmas or New Year’s is not quite like catching a unicorn. They (good deals) still exist,” notes Michael Duchesne, publisher for Travelzoo Canada.
Duchesne does note, however, that travel by air is going to cost extra this time of year. “Aim to vacation somewhere local,” he suggests. “But if you need to go, take the train or plan a road trip instead of a last-minute flight,” he adds.
