We’re Here to Justify Your Summer Vacation

Summer. For many, just the word is enough to evoke feelings of freedom and bliss. Gray office walls morph into colorful sunsets, humming air conditioning units are replaced with salty ocean breezes, and long, stressful days are nothing but distant memories that you can put on mute while sipping on a daiquiri in a beachfront hammock. Others, on the other hand, may be hesitant to put their responsibilities on hold, and will come up with any reason to talk themselves out of a much-needed rejuvenating experience. If this is you, don’t worry. We’re here to address your concerns and give you every excuse to kiss your cubicle goodbye and enjoy a few days of summer freedom.


“I can’t afford to waste money on a vacation.”

We understand, many people see travel as a luxury rather than a necessity, and when money is tight, such luxuries take a backseat. However, there are plenty of deals and promotions to take’ advantage of this summer that will help mitigate your financial concerns. When it comes to airfare, check out the upcoming ViaAir sale that will allow you to travel to select destinations for as low as $91* with no hidden fees or charges! On top of that, attractions at our top-rated destinations are running promotions to bring in travelers and keep them happy. Myrtle Beach vendors, for instance, have deals on anything from wine tasting to pier fishing, so be sure to look up the ongoing deals and events at your prospective locations and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime. With prices this low, anyone can invest a few dollars in some much-needed downtime.


“All the the big tourist attractions Raftingare packed this time of year.”

Because summer is prime time to travel, we understand why you may be concerned about the volume of tourists, but there are plenty of ways to bypass this traffic and enjoy your vacation. For example, try visiting an unlikely location for a fresh and unique summer experience. Hidden gems like Beckley, West Virginia are loaded with stunning scenery that will take your breath away and amazing attractions like kayaking, hiking, and mountain climbing that are bound to make your trip unforgettable. On top of that, traveling to these locations tends to be much cheaper than the typical summer destinations, with ViaAir charging as low as $91* roundtrip for airfare, so you can enjoy this experience with your loved ones at a price that will give your wallet something to smile about.


“I have too much work to do, I don’t have time to go on vacation.”

We understand that leaving your responsibilities behind may seem like a bad idea, especially to all you workaholics out there. However, vacationing has been shown to increase workplace productivity, so if you’re feeling overwhelmed by that heaping pile of paperwork, taking a few days off work may actually be the best thing to do. According to a Forbes publication, America is one of the most overworked countries in the world in terms of forsaken vacation days, with the average American only taking 10 out of 14 days. This means that our workforce lost over 500 million vacation days last year! Interestingly enough, the U.S. is one of the most vacation-supportive countries in the world, with 76% of American bosses supporting vacations as opposed to the 65% global average. So, go ahead: Take a few days off of work to feed your wanderlust and rejuvenate your soul. Taking a break every now and then will keep you productive year-round – plus, you’ve earned it.


Father and daughter“I’d rather save my traveling for another season.”

Some people would rather save their traveling for a season they perceive to be less busy or more convenient, but the reality is that there are few times during the year that are quite as convenient as summer. Travelers saving their vacations for the winter holidays may be surprised to find that December is the busiest travel season of the year, which will make it much more difficult to enjoy a hassle-free vacation. Not only is summer the perfect time for families to travel with school not being a concern (which also makes it easier to justify to your boss), but moreover, the travel industry, anticipating a high volume of vacationers, is teeming with deals and seasonal attractions to bring in tourists like you. ViaAir is offering seasonal service to locations like Myrtle Beach, SC and regular flights to St. Augustine, FL but come fall, offers like this will be gone, so there is no better time to book.


With beautiful weather to enjoy, new destinations to experience, and lifelong memories to make, there is no better time to hop on a plane and share some much-needed and well-deserved downtime with your loved ones. So, just as soon as you get that PTO approved, you can sit back, relax, and let ViaAir transport you to the destination of your dreams.
