It’s Shoulder Season!!

The time to buy is now! Shoulder season is approaching for many locations, especially in Europe.

What is shoulder season? Shoulder season is the time between peak and off-peak seasons. This means fewer crowds, and lower prices. With fewer travelers, expect to see lower prices for both hotels and airfare.

Shoulder season is the perfect travel season for me. I prefer to start my travel season from late April (missing anything related to spring break) to late May. Then, I want to sit it out, until about the end of August to the mid November.

In Europe, shoulder season is in the spring (April and May) and again in the fall (September and Oct).

This is shoulder season for several other great locations including; The Caribbean, East Africa, South Pacific, Singapore, Hawaii, and Australia. The savings can be minimal to significant.

So…where are you going? 🙂
