From tropical trips in the winter to your Christmas vacation, these two topics might not be on your radar just yet, but area travel experts say they should be this week, especially if you want to save some cash.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey teamed up with travel experts on Tuesday at AAA North Penn in Scranton to tackle these topics and more.

The travel agents and pros shared tips on everything from scoring deals on holiday airfare to highlighting the most popular travel trends for the colder months to come.

HOW TO SCORE A DEAL ON FUTURE FLIGHTS

Some summer travel reports including this one by Trip Savvy show that if you book airfare the first week of September, you could save cash on Thanksgiving and Christmas flights.

As for hot travel trends to help you get out of dodge this winter,  they include:

Disney's newest Star Wars attraction, a trip to Vietnam or experiencing Europe through Viking River Cruises.

BIG TRAVEL SECRET REVEALED FOR 2020

AAA North Penn agents also tackled what's billed as their best kept travel secret: one of the largest ships in the world is expected to start setting sail from the NYC area this May as part of Oasis of the Seas.     Click here to see more of the boat.
