October 29th, 2010
You’ve made it through a long, cold winter – including your annual trek home to see the family through the worst of the holiday travel slog – and now spring is right around the corner. Maybe you’ve been dreaming of a getaway. Maybe you feel like you deserve a trip that’s all about what you want after bowing to family travel demands over the holidays. Or maybe you just decided to get a jump start on your spring travel planning. Whatever your motivation, you probably don’t want to spend too much on your trip – no matter where you go.
The good news is that spring tends to be a good time to travel, partly because there are generally good deals to be had. But if you’re keen on a particular destination that’s really popular in the spring – including all those beaches that are like meccas for Spring Break – then you can’t be guaranteed of a low rate just because it happens to be during the shoulder season of spring.
The articles listed below will help guide you through some of the things you need to keep in mind when you’re doing your research on a spring trip in order to get the most out of your trip without spending a fortune.
