10 benefits of travelling in the off-peak season
Off-peak travel is a great way to save money and avoid crowds while still enjoying all the benefits of a holiday.
Long airport queues. Expensive theme park tickets. Inflated flight prices. These experiences can be the unfortunate cons of travel to a beautiful destination.
Travelling off-peak, however, can be a way to avoid higher prices and long queues at attractions, allowing you to still enjoy your desired destination without all the people.
A ‘peak’ season is the popular time that others want to travel – such as chasing the sun overseas during our winter, or going away during school holidays or a long weekend, making demand and prices higher for everyone.
If you have ability to go outside of the peak seasons, such as the ‘shoulder’ or 'low' season outside of summer to the Gold Coast, or taking in the highlights of regional Victoria in winter – you may just find you get an experience that is unparalleled when it comes to access, affordability, benefits, and your own unique travel experiences.
Here are the best perks you get when travelling during the off-peak season.
