After travels restrictions were lifted at the end of the pandemic, people who had been pent up in the homes started to travel just for travels sake. This rubber band effect pushed a weakened travel industry to its limits. But as big corporations do, they figured out how to recover in a way that helped them make money. Raising prices and slashing costs.

Now that binge rush is starting to hit the wall. The tightening economy, higher costs, and massive service issues due to understaffing and bottom line focus has poured reality on the party like a hangover.

It is a good time to start looking at the short side of these travel stocks. Take a look at the carnage:

Keep learning and trade wisely,
