Timing Is Everything!

Travel during the off season if you want to travel like a king on a court jester’s budget. Tourist destinations by definition have busy seasons and off seasons, the busy season being when conditions are ideal and prices are high. Many people see the trip of their dreams and count it out once they see the price tag. However, the trip you’ve always wanted may not be so far out of reach.

Off-season pricing, or customer-based pricing, is a model used by airlines, hotels, tour companies, and resorts. The concept falls back on sunk costs… the concept that a hotel room is going to be there whether or not someone is in it. If the hotel can’t book the room at it’s premium rate of $300 during October, the company is willing to sell the room at a much lower rate, even at a loss to the business! The concept that something is better than nothing is why websites like Priceline, Groupon, and Hotwire exist. Use this information to your advantage when booking your dream vacation!
