NerdWallet reports that since remote workers can travel at any time, some travel directions may change dramatically.

Travel booking app Hopper found that the cost of domestic flights on Sunday rose 5.9% and domestic flights on Monday were up 2.97% this year compared to 2019, as reported by NerdWallet.
Meanwhile, airfares are down 3.04% on Fridays and 1.6% on Saturdays, making Saturday a cheaper day to fly than Monday.
Holiday travel can also change, as remote workers can take longer trips and avoid “peak” travel dates, according to NerdWallet.

Telecommuting has also allowed people to save more on travel by moving to places with lower costs of living and tax incentives, NerdWallet reported.
“Many travelers who have the opportunity choose to combine telework with trips for a change of scenery as well as maximizing their PTO,” Mark Cross, travel expert at Skyscanner, told NerdWallet.
“Work allows people with flexible home and work lives to become ‘half-tourists’ for a while,” Crossi added.
