While winter holidays and mid-summer sound like the perfect time to get away, peak travel often comes with massive crowds, expensive price tags, and limited hotel and airfare options. Off-peak travel might not give you the ideal weather forecast or holiday experience, but has plenty of perks that outweigh all of the inconveniences, not to mention potential savings.

Here are just some of the advantages of traveling during the shoulder-season:

Fewer Crowds

When traveling during the off-season, you’ll experience fewer crowds and tourists, which means more flexibility for you. You won’t have to worry about making reservations well in advance or the consequences of tweaking your schedule on a whim. Plus, you’ll enjoy a more authentic local experience, without being bombarded by tourists left and right.

Inexpensive Accommodations

Many types of accommodations drop their rates or offer special discounts during the off-season. With more availability, you’ll have plenty of lodging options, whether you plan months ahead or a week prior. You can even score more luxurious accommodations at a lower price.

Cheaper Flights

Depending on your destination, flights could be the most expensive part of your trip. Because seats are typically harder to fill during the off-season, airfare is likely more affordable.

Authentic Food

During peak season, many restaurants located in busy tourist areas inflate their prices. You’ll find that during the off-season, restaurants cater to the local people with lower prices and more authentic menus.

More Availability

Off-peak travel means fewer people and more availability for everything from flights to hotels to sightseeing options. Experience a whole range of activities without dealing with long lines. Rather than competing for seats, rooms and tickets, you’ll be able to do more of what you want to.
