Travel Hacker Guide Summer 2016
Awhile back Kayak began releasing so called “Travel Hacker Guides” detailing the most popular destinations and trends in travel. (Side note: I wonder how Alaska Airlines feels about this.) The first time I covered the guide was for their 2015 edition and they followed that up with a holiday guide.
Today Kayak has released their Summer 2016 Travel Hacker Guide. I do love statistics and fancy infographics, so naturally I thought I would share. Among the topics they cover are the top trending destinations across the world. While lists are nice, they back it up with data.
For example, Rio is the top destination this Summer because of the Olympics. Here is some of the data they present:
Naturally everything spikes in August. Not surprising given the Olympics. It also shows that June is a good time to visit. This is especially true considering the cheap flights to Brazil right now (about $500 roundtrip) and the Visa waiver going into place starting June 1!
If you are still looking for a Summer destination or if you just like to look at data, then I suggest giving the Travel Hacker Guide a quick look. They have four different lists with tons of data for every destination listed. Is any of this life changing? No, probably not but it is fun to look at and may help you decide where to go and when to book!
