Fall and Winter Travel – Tips and Dates to Travel on the Cheap


Fall and winter are the most underrated times to travel. These tips and dates will help you travel on cheap. Those with a budget will discover the many opportunities fall and winter travel offers.

Taking trips in the fall, in my humble opinion, is even better than jet setting in the summer. Fall offers deeper discounts, less crowds, and a reduction in stress. While everyone crams their trips in the summer, paying peak travel prices, I love reveling in knowing that I will be enjoying the same trips at half the cost and half the crowds.

Tips and Hacks

For your fall hotel hacks, employee the same routine you would for regular bookings. Scout out the best deals online and then call the hotel and ask them to beat the deal. For off-season travel, Sundays are typically the cheapest day to stay as fall tends to be convention season and packs hotels with business travelers. Try boutiques and smaller locations to avoid the business-overload.
