If you want to go sightseeing or to visit museums and the most popular tourist attractions in a city, I think the best time to travel is during the low-season as you will easily find low cost flights, last minute deals and luxury accommodation at discounted rates. The low-season is usually the winter, or even a time of the year which isn’t associated with travel. You should check when it is in the destination you would like to visit because the advantages of jetting off during this period are numerous. Here are some of the reasons why I love to travel during the low-season.
- Cool temperatures: Despite the cold weather you can wrap up warm and enjoy sightseeing without the burning sun on your back. It is the perfect time of the year for going to places of interest.
- Fewer tourists: You can enjoy sightseeing without fighting through hordes of tourists. Taking photographs is easier and they will also turn out nicer as they will not have as many tourists in the background.
- Discounts: Accommodation, tourist attractions, eating out and airline tickets are cheaper.
If you cannot take your holidays during the low-season or if you prefer to jet off to the sun to relax on the beach, you should try and book your flights in advance to get cheap flights. You may still find last minute offers, but the chances are lower.
To find cheap airline tickets you should use a traditional flight search engine. This will give you a list of flights to choose from and different prices. You will most likely be charged a small booking fee to purchase on these websites. If you find a good deal with one airline, you can also check the price on its official website to see if it offers a better deal. If you find a good offer, book right away as prices are always on the increase.
