KAYAK Releases 2024 Summer Travel Forecast & Top Trending Destinations

The 2024 travel forecast is looking sunny with a chance of savings.

To help travelers score a deal and figure out where to go, KAYAK’s Travel Check- In: Summer 2024 report offers data-driven insights on top trending destinations, wallet-friendly hotspots, and summer holiday travel hacks.
