MIAMI, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Automobile Association in its recently released report projects that this holiday season, around 93.9 million Americans are expected to travel somewhere. A majority of these, around 84.4 million will be traveling via the road. Half Price Tour Tickets, one of the leading tourism companies in the South Florida region and which facilitates tourist movement by operating Key West shuttles, concurs with AAA.

The holiday peak travel season, which typically falls between December 22nd and January 5th, sees a lot of movement towards warmer tourist destinations such as Miami. Though many travelers arrive in Miami in their own vehicles, they prefer to travel south from Miami to Key West using the Miami to Key West shuttles. The travelers usually then spend a few days in Key West and return to Miami using the Key West to Miami shuttle. Half Price Tour Tickets, which operates the convenient Key West shuttles, from experience, knows this pattern is followed by the tourists every year.

Besides being able to sit back, relax and enjoy the views, taking the Miami to Key West shuttle enables the tourists to save money on gas and also improves the environment. The Key West shuttle, which takes around 4 hours to reach its destination, goes through 40 beautiful islands along the way. Half Price Tour Tickets offers the shuttle services at the most affordable rates. Large travel groups can charter a bus at major savings and pick their own travel times.  Tourists are usually picked up at their hotels so that they do not have to look for parking or drive anywhere else before leaving if they have arrived in Miami in their own vehicle. 

Priced at $49, the Miami to Key West shuttle is ideal for people who want to spend a day in Key West and return back later on that same day. If you are planning to stay longer, adding $25 to this base package will enable you to remain longer in Key West and depart on a preferred date. A Key West to Miami shuttle will be there waiting for you. Barring travelers who come in RVs, most tourists prefer to travel in Key West shuttles.

Key West, which has a host of water activities, sightseeing, landmarks, shopping and dining options, will be witnessing a tourist influx this season. Thanks to improved economic conditions and a better job market (although many other states are still struggling) this holiday season more people will be travelling and any time you can beat 5 foot snow drifts and freezing temperatures, you should leap at that opportunity! Do not worry, that cold temperature will greet you when you return! And Half Price Tour Tickets will be welcoming you to Miami with a bouquet of services and splendid options.
