National Shop for Travel Day lands on the second Tuesday of January, which means that it lands on January 12 this year.

Since the Christmas holidays are done and Valentine’s Day is still a month away, it makes sense to take a weekend get-away. National Shop for Travel Day is a day to start planning that needed trip.

This day was actually started to bring attention to travel brands who want to promote their travel deals, allowing your family to book cheaper flights, deals on car rental, and more.

Spend the day figuring out your destination, where you’ll stay and what you’ll see. While COVID-19 has created some travel challenges, it can still be fun to plan and dream about the potential for upcoming trips. If those destinations cannot be reached physically, even mapping out a potential post COVID-19 trip can be fun to do this day.

Why not spend this day packing up your bags so you can have them ready for a quick get-away? Set aside the necessities on this day. Shop for toiletries, throw in your pajamas, an umbrella, warm socks and sandals. After all, you never know when it will be safe to grab your bag and go!
