Pick a Destination in Europe
Best time to travel
If you’re travelling around Europe, the best time to travel is during the offseason. Starting from November to March, you’ll have a better luck finding cheap flights and during this time usually hotels slash their room rents.
Winter is also a busy time of year for people who are planning a ski vacation or for the one’s wanting to experience the Christmas Markets. The busiest time of year is summer season in Europe. From June to August, travelers from all around the world flock to the region to enjoy the good weather.
If you’re planning a trip during summers, book tickets in advance (as soon as booking is available). Flights, even with budget airlines, can even triple in fares!
