Can you save while traveling during the off-peak season?
There's good reason that many people travel during certain times of the year -- they want to enjoy incredible weather. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. During spring, New Orleans, Florida, and California open their arms to tourists. Feeling the bitter cold? Well, the Caribbean Islands and Mexico can warm you up. Unless you're a ski bum -- then places like Colorado will be your winter wonderland. Who doesn't love that harvest of autumn colors? The Pacific Northwest, Northern California, and New England are popular this time of the year. If you can plan your trip around these peak seasons, you'll not only save money, but you'll typically avoid the crowds. Win-win in our books.
