What is the best day of the week to book a flight?

Why travel during the off-peak season?

Have good weather, will travel. For example, Europe, Hawaii, and Alaska are big hits in the summer. Florida, New Orleans, and Southern California are the most popular in springtime. 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.
