TripAtlas.com, the online travel resource, is predicting Las Vegas, Mexico and Dominican Republic to be the most popular travel destinations for consumers in 2010, according to its Trend Tracker which polls customer interest from thousands of potential travelers that use the site regularly.
"Las Vegas will remain a top destination in 2010 due to the large number of hotel openings and cheap deals, including the recently built CityCenter complex offering visitors a variety of new hotels, restaurants, night clubs and shopping options," explains Steven Kaufman, president and co-developer of TripAtlas.com. "Vegas is a perfect city for a long weekend getaway or a quick escape for those on the West Coast. Mexico and the Dominican Republic continue to remain popular due to the high number of all-inclusive resorts that provide tremendous value and appeal to families and couples seeking all their amenities in one location. As the economic climate got tough in 2009, people tend to rely more on their families, and we notice that same effect in the travel industry. For instance, all-inclusives are ideal for taking a second honeymoon, celebrating a birthday or planning a family reunion."
"Our Trend Tracker is one of the most unique features TripAtlas.com offers to travel agents and industry professionals. By understanding what destinations and products interest consumers, agents are able to promote vacation packages that appeal to travelers and generate business," said Travis Snelling, general manager and co-developer of TripAtlas.com.
