Well, it’s June. And hey look at that, the Cavs and Warriors are in the Finals, whodathunk. Though a half-bright third grader could predict the end of the NBA season, predicting airfares is a bit harder. Especially when trying to plan where to go this summer.
But you know who CAN predict airfares? Hopper, an app that amalgamates Elias Sports Bureau-quantities of data to forecast airfare behavior with admirable 95% accuracy. Or just better than Steph Curry’s three-point percentage. While airfares overall trend upward this summer, some select destinations -- both domestic and international -- are expected to drop this month.
On the domestic side, Minneapolis -- one of America’s next great travel destinations and a low-key awesome place to be in the summer -- tops Hopper’s list of cities with big price drops, swooping 23% down to an average of $231 round trip. If you’re hoping for another parade in Cleveland, average airfares there are also expected to drop 20%, to $217. Miami and Orlando will also see huge price drops, if you can handle Florida in the summer. And even that bastion of premium airfares Orange County, California, is expected to drop 20% to $212.
