Winter vacations are an attractive option for many travelers thanks to lower airfare, fewer crowds and better hotel availability, but depending on the destination, prices can still be quite high, especially for those eager to book ski getaways or the like. Here are a few ways to snag super-cheap winter holidays.
Choose dates wisely. Traveling during the winter season presents one major obstacle: holiday prices. Avoid travel during the winter holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas, and instead search for flights and lodging in January and February, when the travel industry often endures a slump.
Travel right after Christmas and New Year’s Day. Alternatively to the point above, extend your winter holiday break from work by traveling right after New Year’s Day when hotels see a dip in bookings, especially in destinations = popular for work conferences such as New Orleans, Orlando and San Francisco.
Go somewhere cold. Cold weather haters will have a hard time wrapping their heads around going somewhere cold during the coldest season of the year, but jetting off to Norway, Iceland or Canada will be substantially cheaper in winter compared with a mid-winter vacation in the Bahamas.
Take advantage of long weekends. Two federal holidays in two winter months (Martin Luther King Jr. Day in January and Presidents Day in February) present two opportunities for long weekend trips. However, booking far in advance will ensure better prices.
One of the greatest sights in the world, the great pyramids of Giza, stands towering in the desert, the imposing stature dwarfing tourists for miles. Visitors to Giza might feel twangs of adventure and exploration, but guests should be warned climbing the pyramids is forbidden.

Pitcairn Island is a remote patch of land between Eastern Island and French Polynesia, and Britain’s only inhabited territory in the Pacific.

In the loud, busy and often overwhelming medina of Marrakesh, it can be difficult to find a tiny sliver of solace in which to rest after spending hours negotiating for the best market prices. But one riad truly exemplifies the characteristic of “tucked away,” as it’s located a few connected alleyways from the noise and congestion.
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
The summer of 2019 will be filled with blockbuster hits. There are some recognizable brands that will perform well and some newcomers that might take the box office by surprise. The season is already starting strong with Marvel Studios finally releasing Avengers Endgame. This massive movie set box office records that likely won’t be touched for years. The film brings an end to the series and fans are not going to wait until it’s available on DVD. Endgame is going to jumpstart the season by bringing people to the movies and reminding them why it’s worth spending money to see a movie in theaters versus at home.
