Ah summer, the best season of all! Tis’ the season to GTFO of town and plan your dream vacation. You’ve acquired two weeks of paid time off and now is the hottest time to cash in. Boundless sunshine, promising weather, and an excuse to travel makes Summer the greatest time of the year- you’d be hard pressed to find somebody who thought otherwise.

Statistically speaking, did you know that July is the busiest travel month of the year? Yep, you heard that right, the air travel system faces a nation-wide peak in July. In fact, the Bureau of Travel Statistics states that 71.8 million people flew during July in 2016. That is almost double the amount of people who travel during the holiday season. Crazy, right?

It’s the perfect time to take advantage of the crowded travel this July. Send your customers and employees with gear that will help make their travel and packing arrangements a little bit easier! Whether your clients are heading to the beach, booking a flight out of the country, or embracing nature in one of our beautiful national parks, we’ve got you covered! Brand Aid has compiled our favorite travel-necessities into three common summer-trip scenarios to help you find products that are useful and convenient, yet attention-grabbing.
