Is Florida one of your favorite travel destinations? Well in 2020 you may be paying a bit more for that. Why? More and more people are moving to the state which does not have a state tax, in part because of the amount of revenue it receives from tourism. With air bnb’s becoming more and more popular, flights easier to book and so forth, people are turning week-long vacations into weekend trips to the sunshine state. That has led to an increase in tourism but also an increase in the need to accommodate these guests to the state.
Restaurants have to hire more staff, hotels have limited space, so they have to charge more, theme parks and beach attendants need to have their full-force ready to go to accommodate the demand that tourism brings to the state. Even grocery store chains do well during these months because so many people are visiting and need a quick and affordable meal. Tourism brings plenty of cash to Florida, but it also brings a lot of work which is why many of the businesses that are impacted by these out of state visitors are going to be raising their costs in 2020.
So, what can you do about it?
There are some things you can do that will help you to keep the costs down when you travel to the sunshine state. One of them is to make sure that you are planning your vacations at times when the state is less busy. For example, if your plan is to hit the beach, summer might be the best time as hotels are usually less crowded and you can find better deals. However, if you are interested in theme parks instead, then try going on less obvious vacation times of the year.
The beginning of the year is also a great time to lock in some affordable deals as businesses offer memberships and rewards programs to get their numbers up and avoid a decrease in sales following December. This is where you can try and take advantage of a few of these promotions and save big.
