As the world is opening back up, demand for flights has increased, causing a surge in prices and disastrous delays in airports across the globe. So allow us to give you a piece of advice: If you can, wait to take your vacation until the fall. Here’s why!
In the fall, crowds at major tourist destinations drop, meaning it will most likely be easier to get a room, and it will be cheaper to do so. It might be a bit colder in some places, but some destinations (like New England, parts of Europe, and Asia) have their best weather and scenery during autumn.
Pandemic Restrictions Will Continue to Drop
If the current trend continues, many countries will continue to lift their pandemic-era travel restrictions such as mask and vaccine requirements, causing less confusion and fewer checkpoints.
As a whole, travel prices are cheaper during the shoulder season. If you look at a flight calendar, you will see that airfare drops during the fall. And if you can travel on weekdays, it could be even cheaper. Hotels also tend to be less expensive in the fall when there is less demand.
Making the Right Choice for You
If you have kids in school or are a teacher, it might not be feasible for you to vacation during the fall. In this case, we recommend booking as far ahead as possible. And if you do travel this summer, keep in mind: Kindness is contagious – and patience is a virtue!
