Last Minute Labor Day Trips That Won’t Break the Bank

A recent Travelocity survey showed that more than 70 percent of Americans believe that Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer.  Last year, more than 40 percent of hotel bookings were made only during the week before the long weekend, so there's still plenty of time for planning. Make the most of the season while the sun is still shining and the heat is still blazing without breaking the bank. Generally, the earlier you book a flight the cheaper it will be. Prices begin to gradually increase a little less than a month before a holiday, according to CheapOAir. Labor Day airfare prices are expected to rise 6 percent after August 16 and 15 percent after August. Your ticket will cost about a third more of what it should if you book the week of Labor Day.
