Booking a trip for spring break? Here’s what you need to know

(WXYZ) — Spring break is right around the corner for many people, and if you’re looking to book a trip, you better get there.

Flights fill up fast and many prices go up, but can you still get a deal? I went out and got advice.

The Stewart family of New Baltimore are passionate about travel. They’ve been to Utah, Bay Harbor, Seattle, Mexico and more. Now they are planning their spring break.

She said those are Delta flyers and I checked the flights from Detroit to Ft. Lauderdale from Saturday March 26 to Saturday April 2. On Wednesday, all seats in basic economy class were sold out.

The lowest fare was $1,048 for a main cabin seat on a nonstop flight departing Detroit at 6:40 p.m.

So we went to Jill Jones with Cadillac Travel in Southfield, what is the best value right now?

“I think if you’re willing to drive to the port of entry, cruise prices are amazing right now. Great price,” she said. “And I think it’s a very sure.

But are cruises a safe place with the pandemic still unfolding?

“Anyone who works on a cruise ship must be vaccinated and boosted and they are also tested once or twice during the week. And if you want to go on a cruise, you have to be vaccinated and tested in port before you board the ship,” Jones said.

Another suggestion is to consider a shorter trip. Jones said to think about going four or five nights because the kids will always love it.

Jones said there is still availability for Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Remember that COVID-19 protocols don’t stall, so you should keep checking in, even after booking.

As for airfares, you can find cheaper flights on third-party sites, but remember that for Delta flights, Basic Economy Class tickets are non-refundable or changeable unless the ticket falls under a “basic economy class waiver”, which for those whose journey begins in the United States, expired on December 31, 2021.
