3 Reasons Why Fall is the Perfect Time to Take a Vacation


Plenty of people plan trips while their kids are on summer vacation or grab major off-season discounts on vacation rental condos in the dead of winter. But in reality, late fall can be the perfect time for a getaway.

Choosing to travel before the holiday heyday may be just the thing to get you through the stressful winter season. Whether you choose to take a trip with the whole family or book a beachfront condo for two, here are three reasons why you should think about taking a fall vacation this year:

  1. Lower rates

    Typically, peak vacation season takes place between December and April. Although that's often when we crave a trip, it's more cost-effective to travel in the fall. Because there aren't as many visitors, rates for hotel rooms and vacation rental condos will often be lower during this time of year. You'll also have a better choice of vacation rentals because you won't be dealing with as much competition. Although you should still try to make reservations early, it may be easier to make last-minute plans during the fall season.

  2. Escape the chill

    If you live in a snowy region, you might be tempted to plan a trip in January or February with the other snowbirds. But weather conditions can be unpredictable, and your travel plans might be delayed or even canceled altogether. By booking your vacation rental in the fall, you can still get away from the chilly weather without facing any unexpected inclement weather. Your vacation also may put you in a better frame of mind to face the impending winter.

  3. Reduce holiday stress

    We all know that the holiday season can bring a lot of added stress. While some people choose to travel during the holiday season, doing so can have its own set of issues. But if you book your vacation condo before the onset of the holiday season, you might have a more relaxed way about you when you return. Considering that 52% of people feel more rested and relaxed when they return from vacation, you'll probably be better equipped to handle anything that comes your way. When you book a vacation before the holidays are in full swing, you can focus on having fun during the season rather than spending the whole time stressing out.
