Tips for Saving on your Caribbean Vacation
One of the more popular beach vacation destinations to visit is the Caribbean. Home to many different tropical islands, the Caribbean has always been a favorite spot for vacationers looking to get away to some place warm. Over the past year or so, it has become even more popular with travelers due to the fact that it is so much more affordable as compared to similar destinations and it is easy to get to. For those living on the East Coast, you can jump on a plane and you are at a beach paradise in a matter of hours. Even though the Caribbean is a very affordable vacation spot, there are certain things that you can do that can help you save even more.
One way that you can save on your Caribbean vacation is to make sure you decide on the right island. Many think that the prices are pretty much the same for all islands but this isn’t always the case. One area where there is the possibility that you could pay more is with your airfare. There are some destinations in the Caribbean, such as Nassau, that offer better airfare rates due to the fact that there are more flights to the location. Some islands in the Caribbean don’t offer many flights to it and with this, there is the potential you could pay more as there are less seats and may be a high demand for them.
You can also find a better deal for your trip by traveling during the right time. Like all popular vacation spots, the Caribbean has peak and off peak travel seasons with travel being more expensive during the peak months. For most islands, the busiest seasons are during the Winter months as well as Spring Break. If you’re looking to maybe find a better deal, you may consider traveling June 1 through November 30. I know some of you might be looking at those dates and wondering why the Summer months are cheaper for a beach destination like the Caribbean. The reason is that this is hurricane season and some people don’t want to travel during this time. If you’re looking for the best deal, you may want to consider traveling during this time.
Another way you can save on your vacation is to try and book a package deal. The Caribbean is well know for offering some of the best all inclusive deals that can help you save on your vacation. At Traveloni, we come out every Friday usually with new all inclusive packages to destinations like Jamaica and Punta Cana that you may want to consider booking.
For your trip, another thing to look out for are any types of freebies. This can include anything from free nights or free activities. There are quite a few resorts in the Caribbean that offer these types of freebies to help entice vacationers to stay with them that you should look for. With a free night, you can bring down the total cost of your trip and spend it elsewhere like shopping or maybe booking another activity like a visit to a spa.
There really isn’t anything like taking a vacation to the Caribbean and doing these things can help you save.
