I am featured in today’s L.A. Times Travel article by editor Catharine Hamm. The article “What Travelers Can Expect in 2011” discusses many predictions for travel in the new year by Matthew Stone, professor of hospitality and tourism at Prince George’s Community College.
Some of the travel predictions for 2011 featured in the L. A. Times:
- Still some great travel deals for those in the know, but discounts will be fewer than in 2010.
- The best hotel & airfare sales will be short-lived, gone in a flash.
- As local & state governments try to shore up their budget deficits, expect to see decreased hours at state tourist sites, increased taxes & fees on hotels, rental cars & tourist attractions.
