If you’re a discount traveler or simply looking for the best travel bargains, you should try to plan your vacation on the off-peak travel times for the destination of your choice. Weather is mostly the main reason for certain off-peak and peak travel price increases and decreases. As the snowbirds flock to the south in the winter and head back home in the summer, many tourism destinations along the Atlantic coast are affected by this switch in population and season.
Hotels try to lure guests in during the off-peak seasons for various reasons, revenue and occupancy numbers. Hotels in Florida, Texas, and Louisiana are discounted in the summer months and you can spot great deals on hotels, attractions, or airfare. If you call the hotel directly, they can point you towards some activities that are no available in the peak season that are available in the off-peak season for the dates you are traveling. Package deals are generally offered through the main travel websites for the off-peak season and often include a free car rental or dinner gift certificate at a nice restaurant.
