Why Travel Off Season?




This week on the Podcast we talked about why you need to Invest in Rest. One of the major reasons so many of us don't take time off is money and more specifically not having enough of it. In today's blog we find out how even with very little cash you can travel, go on holiday and invest in rest - that is because you can travel off season.

Why travel off season?

Plane, train and boat prices are cheaper.
 
Accommodation is cheaper.


Hotels and popular attractions are less busy.

Temperatures will be hot but not too hot.

There is more choice for the late booker and there are also great prices if you like to be organised and book early.


How do you know when off season will be?

As a rule of thumb off season for many European holiday destinations usually starts late April till mid July. Then mid September till late October.

To get exact dates check your local authorities web site for information about school term times. 

Alternatively pop into a travel agent and pick up a brochure. Look at the cost per week chart, you will easily be able to tell when peak holiday time starts as prices will rocket from on week to the next. 


If you want a holiday to give yourself a well deserved break companies such as Superbreaks and Jet 2 Holidays can offer great deals on off peak travel. While websites such as Skyscanner can throw up cheap air travel prices.
