Fall & Winter Travel Deals You Don’t Want to Miss

Plan ahead for savings on winter getaways and sunny escapes from Canada to the Caribbean.

It’s that time of year — trip planning time (OK let’s be honest that’s a year-round endeavor). But what’s important to note for travellers in search of getaways for the upcoming chilly months is that planning ahead of time can be extremely beneficial to your bank account. Ski destinations often give travellers discounted rates on everything from season passes to hotel stays, and for those in search of sun and sand, you’ll find late fall deals as resorts have a lull before the holidays. Not to mention booking in 2015 can result in savings for 2016.

Here are a handful of deals you don’t want to miss out on.
