Affordable Winter Destinations for 2017

Smaller crowds and the low off-season lodging prices make travel budget-friendly


Winter seems to be the time when everyone wants to get away – some people look for a warm and cozy retreat, others prefer an adventure destination far, far away. The good news is that plenty of spots don’t charge over-the-top fees even if it’s not the shoulder season yet.[slideshow:95353]

Many Americans consider the Caribbean because it’s close and easier to reach. Several islands come in all price ranges, so finding a reasonably priced resort is not a big challenge. But countries in the opposite direction or farther east should not be ignored. Flights across the Atlantic don’t have to break the bank; in fact, many companies offer discounts after the holidays.

Go later in January as the high season ends in the middle of the month, fly to alternative airports, book on Tuesdays, eat like a local, and don’t book tours in advance. These are some of the tips you can use to save money while traveling.

Visit a coastal fishing village that will delight you with history, adventure and of course, warmth; relax on breathtakingly beautiful beaches that give way to some of the best waves you’ll find anywhere; make time for a true paradise on Earth if you like perfect weather and water sports – all for a reasonable price.

Smaller crowds and the low off-season lodging prices make travel budget-friendly.
