But you still can find deals if you travel at the right time and to the right spots, and book flights as soon as possible, according to the Bing Travel summer forecast.
Where to travel: Orlando, Fla., will be among the cheapest destinations, with round-trip airfare averaging $300 and hotel prices averaging $107 per night. You'll also find deals on flights to Boston and Denver. Las Vegas has some of the lowest rates on three-star accommodations, and you also can find deals in Miami and San Diego. Traveling overseas this summer will be more expensive, with the airfare averaging $1,250, up from $1,100 last summer.

When to book: Book flights as soon as possible. "Travelers who are planning to wait out the rising fares in hopes of finding a deal will likely be disappointed," said Krista Pappas, global travel industry director at Bing.
As for accommodations, consider a vacation rental home. Renting can be cheaper than a hotel room. Check HomeAway.com or VRBO.com.
