An all-inclusive holiday is often expensive, with the average cost ranging from around $150 to $450 per night. However, what if there were some ways to help reduce those costs and bring your nightly rate down for your next holiday stay?
When it comes to booking all-inclusive hotels and vacations, seasons play a huge role in how much you’re going to have to pay. Let’s talk about the cheapest time of year for your next holiday.
High vs. Low Seasons
All-inclusive holidays are usually more expensive during the high season, which is typically from December to April. The prices for a vacation or hotel stay during this time can be as much as two or three times the price of what you would pay during the low season. The low season is typically from May to November, with August and September being the cheapest months.
We say typically, but this can drastically change depending on where you are looking to book your all inclusive hotel. Some vacation and holiday destinations will have the exact opposite of the norm. So, remember to always double-check for that specific location ahead of time.
Always Plan Ahead
No matter what time of year you are looking to take your vacation, always plan ahead. Planning in advance is the best way to save money on all-inclusive hotel stays and vacations. The earlier you start looking, the more likely you are to find a great deal. Many hotels and resorts will offer early booking discounts of up to 25% off for reservations made six months or more in advance.
So, if saving money on your next all-inclusive holiday is important to you, remember to start planning early and always compare rates between different hotels and resorts before booking.
Avoid National Holidays
Avoid booking your trip during or near a national holiday. Holidays like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and Independence Day are peak travel times, especially in the United States, and tend to be more expensive.
If you can, try to schedule your holiday outside of these months to get the best deals on all inclusive hotels and vacations. Traveling the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, the Thursday before Christmas, and similar days right before a holiday are the most expensive airfares and hotel stays.
People who have the ability to fly on the holiday themselves pay the least amount of money, as they do every year. Savings of up to 30% are typical. Monday, November 22, and Tuesday, December 21, are the best days to fly outbound for Thanksgiving and Christmas, respectively.
Best Time for Holidays
If you want to find the cheapest time of year to book all inclusive luxury hotels is during the off-season of the destination you are wanting to visit. Look up the holiday season for that location and avoid it like the plague
Next, avoid traveling at all during national holidays. Also look up local holidays as well, as this can lead to higher prices too. Plan at least 6 months in advance for the best pricing and shop around to find the best luxury all inclusive holiday offers!
