Can staying the weekend get me a cheaper ticket?
Spending the weekend at your destination, like Chicago, usually means lower airfare since most people fly during this time. Good thing to tell your boss if you have a business trip -- wink-wink.
Why travel during the off-peak season?
There's good reason that many people travel during certain times of the year -- they want to enjoy incredible weather. Summertime is when Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are at their most popular. Popular Spring Break destinations are New Orleans, California, and Florida. Feeling the bitter cold? Well, the Caribbean Islands and Mexico can warm you up. Unless you're a ski bum -- then places like Colorado will be your winter wonderland. In the autumn, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and New England draw visitors. If you can plan your trip around these peak seasons, you'll not only save money, but you'll typically avoid the crowds. Win-win in our books.
