One thing to take into consideration when deciding when you will travel is the weather. There is a reason the prices are the cheapest during the off season. It’s Cold! If you live in an area that has cold winters it may not be that big of a deal for you however, for those of us who live in warmer areas it can be a very big deal.
There also may be some attractions that are closed during the winter so if there is a particular site you wish to visit and are thinking about traveling during the winter months make sure you check to see it that attraction will be open.
The off season doesn’t always mean the winter time, it can also refer to the summer in places that experience extreme heat during the summer months.
Some people prefer to travel during the off season. It is less crowded and prices overall are lower. So it definitely has its advantages. If you have concerns about the weather being either too cold or too hot, but prices during the peak season are just too high consider traveling during the shoulder season. Choose travel dates as close to the peak season as possible to get the best weather with the shoulder season pricing.
