Travel Smart after the New Year

Posted by Royal Sundaram on 03 Jan 2012

Traveling is the best relaxation for many of us that helps to disconnect from our regular chores. But the ever rising travel costs can put a spoke in our travel plans. Don’t worry; we have something to share with you that can help you get a sweet deal on your travel plans.

The period of lull after Christmas and New Year is referred to as the “Dead Week” in the travel industry. If you are flexible about your travel plans, this is the best period where you can make great savings while enjoying a great holiday. The “Dead Week” is the time when the travel demand is low, which leads to plummeting air fares and hotel tariffs. This also includes last minute deals offered from suppliers.

You have to wait until the airlines have squeezed enough income during the holiday season, and are yielding the “Dead Week”. This is the time when prices will drop – and you should grab the opportunity.

You will find travel agents offering massive discounts, such as Buy 1, Get 1 offer or some great bargain deals on tickets and hotels etc., If you are a frequent flyer, depending on the miles traveled, you may be upgraded from the economy to the business class or you may even get a free ticket to your dream destination.

Choose off-peak destinations to avoid crowds, long queues, and also to enjoy great discounts on hotel and resort stays. Be flexible and travel to your destination a day or two before the school break and you can surely bring down your travel costs. During this time, attractive sales are held by many stores and the store employees are a lot friendlier because they are not bombarded by many customers.

Guides are more relaxed and in a mood to answer your queries. You can also experience breath taking sites in some places. For example, if you travel to Wales during winter, which is off season, the beauty that you see cannot be experienced during the peak season. The snow capped mountains and the wildlife looks gorgeous during winter.

To enjoy your travel right after this New Year with no worries, don’t forget to get your Royal Sundaram Travel Insurance Plan so that you and your family are fully covered for any exigency.
