Me Time

A greater emphasis on valuing one's vacation time as therapeutic and necessary is creating a demand for 2-3 day mini-breaks and weekend getaways.

Brand Power

As the on-line world becomes ever more seductive, more and more travel searchers will fall prey to the lure of the dominant travel brands. The long range fallout is likely to be a decline in product choice for anyone but the most adventurous.

Cruising: The Water's Fine

The standards continue to rise, the diversity of onboard offerings is amazing and cruising continues to be a fabulous experience for a terrific price. Savvy shoppers who want to try a luxury cruise will find the values undeniably appealing in 2010 with some lines offering deep discounts and return airfare included.

Flocking South

The Canadian dollar is expected to surpass $1.10 against the U.S. dollar early in 2010 and stay relatively high. This will drive record traffic south of the border. The flurry of air travel security insanity will likely pass fairly quickly. A strong dollar and the cold outweigh the extra time and frustration.
