Rising prices force tourists to change their travel plans

The summer travel season is in full swing on the Central Coast, but high gas prices and inflation are forcing some tourists to change their plans. Whether it’s food, housing or gasoline, consumer prices are on the rise – this year, we can speak of “vacation inflation”. Lexi Johnson, who works at Adventures By the Sea, which is a popular place where travelers rent bikes and kayaks, said they were forced to raise prices. “We raised our prices, the first time in three years, not that much, but you know, with inflation and everything going up. A bike used to be $10, now it’s $12. Johnson said that ‘luckily they were still seeing a consistent number of customers, despite some people cutting back these days Higher prices may not stop some people from traveling altogether, but many say that is definitely changing their way of doing it.”We normally would have had to drive, but with gas prices, we decided to fly here instead,” said George Herman, a tourist from Arizona. Other travelers have even said they have cut their stays a few days shorter due to rising hotel prices.“We usually go away for a week to get away from the heat, but now we only do it for three or four days . So now, it’s shorter. Prices were like 600, 500 for an ocean view room. Now it’s like 800 tonight. So we just do less time. Same vacation,” said tourist Lori Moroz-White.
