By AAA of Western and Central New York

Did you travel in 2018? If so, you’re not alone. And, according to AAA Western and Central New York’s travel consultants, chances are it was somewhere warm!

The results are in from trips booked throughout the year, and the majority of 2018 destinations were in warm climates. It looks like WNY and CNY residents tried to escape the cold and warm up this year.

According to AAA TripTiks, flights and hotels booked, and more, the top travel destinations for 2018 for the Western and Central New York region were:

  • Florida
  • Caribbean cruises
  • Alaska
  • Dominican Republic
  • Jamaica
  • Mexico
  • Italy
  • Hawaii
  • Las Vegas
  • European river cruises

While Florida and Caribbean cruises held their top spots, Alaska moved up to the third most popular destination. Italy made the list this year at No. 7, while Hawaii held on to eighth place.

2018 was a tremendous year for travel and AAA’s consultants expect the trend to continue into 2019. If you’re considering a 2019 trip, consultants are advising travelers to book now. Cold winter weather has people in the “booking mood,” with aircraft and cruise cabins already filling up.
