Leader in Affordable Vacations for Older Americans Reports Double Digit Growth for Domestic Travel This Summer


EL SEGUNDO, CA –Following a report in the Wall Street Journal that airfares to popular U.S. destinations have dropped, YMT Vacations, the leading provider of affordable group travel packages to older Americans, is pleased to confirm strong growth in domestic travel for U.S. destinations this summer. Several of YMT’s U.S. itineraries are ahead by almost 20 percent as more Americans choose to vacation closer to home in 2013. 
“Due to higher airfares for international and other long haul destinations, we are seeing our more budget-conscious guests opting for U.S. based vacations,” stated Jerre Fuqua, President of YMT Vacations. “While space is filling up fast, there is still time to get a great deal on a summer vacation.”
