'Shoulder' Seasons Are The Best Time To Score Travel Deals

You already know that heading to a destination in the off season is one of the best ways to travel for cheaper, but off seasons often means tolerating tough weather. 'Shoulder' seasons, the time between peak and off season, is the perfect time to save money and see your favourite places, all without subjecting yourself to bad weather. Image from usiruk.

The shoulder season for your dream destination is determined by the 'high' and 'low' seasons for that part of the world. Here are the shoulder seasons for popular places:

  • Hawaii: March and September
  • Rio de Janeiro: March
  • Caribbean Islands: April and November
  • Japan: May
  • The Australian Outback: April

If you have a particular spot in mind, just google its name and 'shoulder season' when you start planning your trip. You'll get a better idea of when to schedule your trip, and find information on why that time of year is considered a shoulder season (such as when a big festival just ended, like Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.)
