  1. I think it we will see some mixed results in terms of Luxury travel in 2009. With the economy being shaky, less people are looking to spend on luxury travel. However, many airlines and hotels are giving great deals on luxury travel. In terms of volume sales I think there won’t be much but expect those who can afford a Luxury vacation to take it now.

  2. i think so far we have seen that with the current economic crisis the luxury travel market is offering more deals than normal and it is a great time to take advantage of them and enjoy some pretty spectacular places.
