If you want to go somewhere for the holidays but are hesitant because of the prices during this high-traffic travel season, there is still one option that may be affordable. We talked to travel expert Chris McGinnis, a spokesperson for Chase Sapphire Preferred, who shared this nugget of information about a bargain holiday travel destination:
"If you are looking for a fun and inexpensive way to spend the Christmas holiday, consider a trip to Las Vegas. The last two weeks of December are typically the slowest weeks of the year in Las Vegas, and prices drop dramatically for both flights and hotels. For example, rooms at the four-star Mirage or Mandalay Bay resorts are as low as $65 per night during Christmas week—but if you plan to go over the popular New Year’s weekend, rates soar to almost $300 per night."
