Priceline.com Unveils Top 25 Destinations for an Unforgettable New Year’s Eve

NORWALK, Conn., December 17, 2015 . . . Every city rings in the New Year in a unique way, and the location can make the experience unforgettable. There’s New York City’s infamous ball drop, Nashville’s concert series, Las Vegas’ party scene, or London’s firework show. According to priceline.com’s annual list of top New Year’s Eve Destinations based on actual hotel reservations, travelers are making sure the backdrop for this year’s celebrations are as epic as ever.

Not surprisingly, topping this year’s list for New Year’s Eve is Las Vegas followed by known party destinations New York City, Miami, New Orleans and Orlando. Unexpectedly, international cities such as London, Tokyo and Dubai, which weren’t on priceline.com’s top list last year, have made it onto the top 100 list this year. New to the top five is Miami, and other coastal destinations like New Orleans, Puerto Rico, and The Florida Keys also made big leaps in the rankings.

“Large metropolitan cities are much more popular than beach destinations this year, and surprisingly international destinations have also made the list,” said priceline.com’s Travel Analyst Brian Ek. “Travelers who know they will be celebrating the night away are taking advantage of attractive last-minute deals on priceline.com and booking hotel rooms near their festivities. .”

For those who have yet to book their travel, priceline.com’s free mobile app is running a holiday promotion called Express Deals UnwrappedSM until New Year’s weekend. The priceline.com mobile app also offers ‘Tonight-Only’ hotel deals up to 40 percent off.
