Getting a Bargain Vacation: Travel at the Off Times

For many people, a vacation is just too expensive. They don't think they can afford to go someplace nice because they don't have the money to do it. But often, this is just because they are looking only at the "peak" times to travel.

What is a peak time? Well, it differs depending on where you want to go and what you're planning on doing. For instance, Thanksgiving or Christmas would be peak travel times because everyone want to go everywhere - thus travel costs are much higher because there is so much demand. If you want to go to Colorado, the winter will be generally more expensive because of the skiing. Likewise, Florida or a tropical place will cost more in the summer. So how do you avoid the expense? Go on the edges of the travel "season." You can still have a good vacation in Florida even if it's a couple of


degrees colder than ideal, and if you're traveling on a budget, it's better to go to a nice place for cheaper than just limit yourself to places you don't really want to be in the first place. Another idea is to travel for some reason other than why most people go to the location. If you want to go to Colorado for the hiking instead of the skiing, summer would be ideal. You get to go there for cheap - you just don't go for the same reason everyone else is, so you don't have to go during the expensive times.
