Sometimes you just need a little extra push to go from, "It could be fun to go traveling..." to "I'm booking my flight and car rental." Here are a few reasons to get your travel plans together right now:
Gas is cheap
Gas prices are at the cheapest they have been in six years. That means fueling up your airport car rental costs less than it has since 2009. This is also true for airplanes, so flight prices are also way lower than they have been in recent years.
The exchange rate is nearly equal
If you plan to travel outside of the country, this may be the time to do it. As of March 23, 2015, the U.S. dollar-Euro exchange rate is as close as it has been in 10 years. A dollar is worth around 0.94 of a Euro. This is super helpful when you are trying to convert prices in Europe to what they would cost back home.
There are so many options
You can fly to just about anywhere. And if the airport isn't in the exact city you want to reach, you can pick up discount car rentals right in the parking lot to get you where you need to go.
