Will you be traveling this holiday?

In a recent survey where people were asked if they planned to travel this holiday season, many replied: "No, they would not be traveling." "They would be driving this year." The reason, "Tickets seem to be extra expensive this year for some destinations, while the hassle of flying and getting a rental vehicle, was just to much last year and they didn't want to make the same mistake." I can't help but wonder what the gas prices are like right now across the country. Will you be traveling this holiday season? I enjoy staying home during the holidays, taking winter walks or getting my youngest outside to build snowman.

We won't be travelling this year. It'd be nice to get away, but sadly we just don't have the money.

I've never taken a holiday vacation. It would be nice to do it ones just to see if I like it. Maybe a cabin in the woods. I'm not sure I could do without winter. What does it even feel like the first time one goes away to like Florida and misses winter? I'd probably freak, "I want to go home!" lol

Not a long trip this year... me and my brothers planned to bring our families to our cousins on the city about 120 KM away, which we could reach by land travel

If you plan a travel . Money will fly to many things include gas/petrol , food and rent etc. If you want to be economical plan short travels.

you are right i also not go for holiday because they know people come so rise rent at every where,so its better to stay at home after sometimes they down their rates so at that time we can go if we have time.

This is a good question. In fact in my country everything's price is increasing, of course the gas always goes up hugely. But this is not the reason that I don't have a plan to travel. In fact I want to travel during the Chinese New Year because all of us have days off work and school. We can have a travel together. This year may be different because I concern about the security much more. I think the terrorists attack in Paris really shocked me and I am worried about the global security. Nowhere is completly safe.
