From the My Itchy Travel Feet family (Donna, Alan and Nicole) to yours, we wish you all a Merry Christmas!

From Donna:

Hello from the coast of Oregon. I decorated for Christmas in Montana, undecorated, and now Alan and I are spending a few days learning what Christmas is all about on the Oregon Coast. No matter where you are celebrating, we wish you the merriest of Christmases with family and friends.

From Nicole:

Well, here we are. I swear this time of year comes flying in before you know it, doesn’t it? I’m off for the next few weeks to eat, drink and be merry. I hope you all have a nice holiday. Here’s to fabulous travels in 2019!

Travel Deals for Boomers

Just in case you’re still shopping for last minute gifts, avoid costly overnight or two-day delivery charges by purchasing experiences rather than hold-in-your-hand gifts:

  • Is someone in the family taking a big trip? Purchase a Medjet Assist membership (yearly or for a specific trip). This is a gift that will give you peace of mind while protecting your recipient from being stuck in a faraway destination due to hospitalization.
  • Are you taking the grandkids to DisneyWorld? With CityPass, you’ll save on tickets to Orlando’s theme parks, including Disney. Check the prices here.
  • Surprise your family by renting a vacation home for the entire clan.
  • Whisk your sweetie away on a romantic weekend getaway. Compare prices on flights with Skyscanner.
