There are so many reasons why fall is a great time to travel. You don’t have the summer rush, the weather is usually not too hot, not too cold plus, it’s shoulder season! Shoulder season in travel means that time between high and low season — so it’s not too busy, plus you can get a great deal.
3 WAYS TO SAVE ON FALL TRAVEL
Go for different destinations
Fall is a great time to save in Europe, but you can save even more if you book not-so-popular destinations. If you want an Italian vacation, bypass Rome and Venice, and go to the island of Sardinia for better rates. Or try booking a winter hotspot now like Park City Utah or any other ski destination. Fall means it’s just before peak season for them, they have great trails for hiking, biking, spas and amazing fall colours.
Look to programs you’re already part of
I’m all about making travel as easy as possible to get the best value. A lot of people may not know that Costco actually has a travel service for its members with its Capital One Master Card. It’s a great way to find amazing fall deals and even get some perks like room upgrades at some Instagram-worthy destinations!
Use flight tracking apps
I’ve talked about these before, but I love using an app like Hopper to help you secure the best flight deal possible. Hopper scours billions of flight prices to make sure you’re getting the best rate, and even sends you alerts for when prices go down or are expected to increase so you buy at the best possible time.
