The Best Last-Minute Hotel and Travel Deals for Christmas 2022

The period between Christmas and New Year's tends to be one of the most expensive times to travel. This is because many people take time off of work or need to hit the road in some capacity. As a result, high demand typically translates to increased airfare, hotel, and vacation prices. But if you've found yourself with extra use-it-or-lose-it PTO, are itching to tack a trip onto existing holiday travel, or just need to feel the warmth of the sun, there are still deals to be found.
