Often a great airfare will turn out to be a disappointment because it won’t be available when you need it. I decided to take a look at what fares are currently available for those inclined to take a vacation over Christmas. I also glanced at hotel rates. Some destinations may seem like a good deal based on airfare, but hotel rates are high over the holidays . One example is New York City – there are airfares in the $400s from Halifax and Moncton over Christmas but it’s very popular then so finding a hotel deal would be difficult. These examples of airfare and hotel were chosen because they seem like a good value for the period.
