How can you swing it? You can find cheap vacations if you are willing to think out of the box and be flexible on your destination, timing, and where you stay. Don’t worry! You’ll have a roof over your head (or sky), and the plane will have wings.
You can vacation in a place or have a staycation, and make plans to explore your city, town, or region on foot, by car, or bicycle. It may be that you live close to a National Park, lakes, rivers, and you always wanted to take your family and explore these places.
By going off-season, you can avoid crowds, lines, fewer tourists, and have greater availability to explore. Determine what off-season may be as they differ by cities, countries, beaches, amusements, casinos, or ski resorts.
So what qualifies as low season? It will be dependent on the type of trip you are planning, weather, school schedules, holidays, and special events like the Olympics or World Economic Forum in Davos, as examples.
