Fall Travel Deals
August 4th, 2011
We hear so often that we should avoid traveling during the high season – which is typically summer – that you’d have every right to feel smart when you start planning your next vacation for the fall. The autumn, after all, is one of the two “shoulder seasons” most destinations experience – that ideal combination of still-nice weather, smaller crowds, and lower prices.
Unfortunately, you’re not the only person who has clued into the benefits of shoulder season travel, so you might find it more difficult to score a bargain-basement travel deal this fall than you have in years past. The deals are still out there, and the prices remain more appealing overall than high-season prices, but it definitely pays to do your homework in advance.
The articles linked below are all geared toward helping you find travel deals for the fall, whether you’re going to the popular autumn destinations or not.
Airfare is the biggest expense of most trips, so it makes sense to start with that to save money on your fall trip. Finding cheap fall airfare is usually easier than finding cheap summer airfare, but there are still some tricks that are helpful to know and that could save you even more money.
