Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) -With the unrelenting cold, F-M travelers are saying "I've had it. I'm getting out of here."

Travel agencies in Fargo-Moorhead are being inundated with calls from people who want an escape.

Travel Travel owner Cindy Tyo says bookings from last year are up 20 percent in just the first half of January, chalking it up to winter arriving early this year.

The most common destinations are Mexico, the Caribbean, or anywhere warm.

Cindy Tyo, Travel Travel owner: “They're saying ‘we can’t take it. It's already been below zero for how many weeks? We're ready to go this year. We're not going to hold off on this vacation.’"

Tyo says the busy booking season started back in November, but January is typically the breaking point before folks really start heading out of town.
