We all want to experience luxury vacations but how can we do this without spending all of our hard earned cash? When we are planning vacations the first thing a lot of us will look at is when is the best time to go? We pick our travel time based on when the peak season to travel is. We don’t usually consider what the advantages are if we don’t travel at this time, or even if there are any. There are. When you do get to travel, do you find yourself staying in budget hotels? Picking and choosing what activities you are going to do because you can’t afford them all? Maybe you’re getting lost in the crowds of people. Here are just some of the advantages that you will find if you choose to travel off season. Cheaper hotel rates Some hotels will slash their prices by almost 50% and that means big savings for you. Why not stay in that 5 star luxury hotel, for the same price you would normally pay in a budget hotel if you were traveling during peak season? Save money on many attractions and typical tourist spots. See and do everything that you want to and reap the benefits of all the savings! Besides saving money, do you know what else is great about this? Less Crowds! Not only did you save money but you don’t have to deal with the throngs of people. Enjoy your activities in peace, what we are craving for the most from vacation in the first place! Are there any disadvantages to off season travel? It depends on how you look at it really. Depending on where you are traveling, there could be a few things, or attractions, that are closed. Maybe a few restaurants. Some hotels. You also need to be aware of what the weather will be like, you don’t want to travel right into a monsoon! I choose to look at it like this; yes some things are closed but does that really affect my overall vacation? Not really because I can vacation in luxury, still see what I want and actually discover new things that are off the beaten path. Just because some of the main touristy things are closed, doesn’t mean that your destination doesn’t have anything to offer, it means you get the chance to explore areas that most people don’t get to.
