Travel trends for 2013, road trip vs. flying

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

For those looking to travel in 2013, there are a few things to keep in mind. 

When it comes to travel in the New Year, the best bet could be a road trip; that is because gas prices are predicted to remain low and flying could cost travelers more in 2013.

There are a few trends to look for, like paying more for plane tickets and getting fewer great deals. Extra fees will also start popping up more, like an extra fee for checked bags at the airport; extra fees for hotel safes and fees for rental car extras. 

More airlines are also expected to merge, which could cause tickets to go higher.  Analysts are saying to watch for US Airways and American Airlines to merge in 2013. 

This means too that travelers will be getting more protection from the Transportation Department, and that means there will be more transparency in airline ticket pricing and contracts.
