Discounted off season travel to Europe
Low season travel to Europe generally runs from December through March which is when you typically can find the best bargains. Travel in October, November, April and May travel is frequently termed shoulder season and discounts are available but generally not as much as during low season. Of course the summer months are the most heavily traveled period and demand the higher fares.
There are always exceptions to these seasonal guidelines so I encourage you to compare dates and destinations as you seek the great buy.
A good place to start researching your European getaway is a visit to the European Travel Commission website at: http://www.visiteurope.com/us. This is a comprehensive site of 36 European nations and offers a wealth of information. Start by visiting your country or area of interests’ official tourism web site and from here you should find links to many of the supplier deals and discounts. Due diligent research, take excellent notes then head down to your local travel for their assistance in booking your perfect European holiday.
I personally love to travel to Europe in the fall and spring. Summer is wonderful with everything in bloom and pleasant weather but the major cities and tourist attractions remind me of Disney World. That means people and crowds everywhere, queuing up for everything. By traveling during low or off season that translates into instead of standing in line at the Louve Museum in Paris you can spend hours inside browsing their collections. You can have a leisurely meal at a charming sidewalk café without being rushed through affair or waiting hours for a table. That room in that quaint little quest house on the market square in now available and affordable. Standing room only on the trains is a distant memory as there is plenty of open seating. You have plenty of space to roam, explore and discover the charms of the old world.
