Its funny, I have been around for a long time on these boards and every year around February we have people ask about “price drops” for the Spring, every year the general response seems to be “normally the price drops for May but this year is different” ;)…
Well, yes, this year is different but I am willing to bet that you will still see great sell-off prices for May and June, however, I wouldn’t expect to see prices really drop for May/June travel until after the March Break.
Around here the TA’s are busy right now, this is true, mostly I suspect due to the major amount of people who have suddenly found themselves with extra time on their hands, either through lay-offs or forced vacation time.
For instance my city’s major employer (8,000 employees) has gone to a “work share” program since January, demanding all employees take a one-week unpaid holiday per month until June :o… EI has been footing 50% of the lost wages so yep, people are taking this time off work and traveling.
With that being said I still hold my belief that come May but especially June, you will see great prices…
BTW… Last June from Toronto you could get the MCSM for $700 taxes in per person booked the last week of April.
