19 Fantastic Destinations For Your Fall Travel

Fall travel for 2015: list of top 10 booked destinations

The summer travel season may be winding down. But the fall and early winter travel season is just gearing up. Fall is actually a great time to travel. With summer vacation travel over, fall is low season for domestic and some international air carriers.

Virtuoso is in the know about the hottest destinations for those needing to fulfill their wanderlust over the next few months. Tried and true favorites are still attracting the bulk of bookings from Virtuoso’s U.S. and Canadian member travel agencies. But more unique locales are breaking out in comparisons of bookings year over year.

The Virtuoso Top 10 for Fall Travel

 

  1. Italy
  2. Mexico
  3. United Kingdom
  4. South Africa
  5. Australia
  6. New Zealand
  7. France
  8. China
  9. Germany
  10. Canada

Europe continues to dominate the Top 10, with Italy, the U.K., France and Germany all making the list. That’s thanks largely to the softer euro. Italy has bypassed summer 2015’s top destination for Virtuoso travelers, the U.K. It reclaims its top spot, which it also held in the fall of 2014.

With a 34 percent increase in air bookings alone, Canada is the fastest growing of the Top 10 Destinations. Mexico is on the move up from last year’s fall travel rankings. It was in seventh place at that time.

The Virtuoso Hot 10 for Fall Travel

  1. Vietnam (+270%)
  2. India (+212%)
  3. French Polynesia (+91%)
  4. Spain (+53%)
  5. Argentina (+46%)
  6. Canada (+34%)
  7. U.S. Virgin Islands (+32%)
  8. Peru (+28%)
  9. Costa Rica (+27%)
  10. Netherlands (+25%)

This fall travelers are drawn to the cultural destinations, favorable climes and relative value of Vietnam and India. Both are seeing triple-digit increases in future bookings. Less traditional European countries like Spain and the Netherlands are on the rise as well. Travelers looking for a seasonal switch will be heading to Argentina and Peru. And for those in need of sun, French Polynesia, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Costa Rica are providing it.
