Why Italy? And When?
Summer means travel. Back up the necessities, round up the family and go somewhere! This is an international standard. This is when we find time to take the "big" trips and experience the world. And though not everyone will find the time or resources to fly across the pond, Europe is and will remain at the top of the summer destination list for most adventurer seekers, families, and couples, in especially, Italy. But, when should you go and when should you begin planning?
A World with Travel Agents
The global economy is recovering. This past May the Conference Board recorded a 1.1% increase in the U.S. consumer price index equating to more disposable income and resultantly, an increase in demand for travel. It was recently projected by Lonely Planet that, "65 billion people will fly over the next 15 years...that's how many people flew over that past 100 years!" Arguably, smart technology via phones and self operated platforms will pioneer the travel industry's future. As technology advances, a working middle class grows and demands for travel and accommodation increase. Although a do-it-yourself ethos does dominate traveler's activities and abilities to see the world, such options are not always practical to busy professionals and large groups of leisurely adventures. Hence, we use travel agents.
