- Example Dates: (Priceline / BookingBuddy) Dec 15 – Dec 17 / Blackout: Dec 20 – Jan 04 / Jan 06 – Jan 09 / Jan 10 – Jan 17 / Jan 13 – Jan 16 / Jan 17 – Jan 24 / Jan 20 – Jan 23 / Jan 24 – Jan 31 / Jan 31 – Feb 07 / Jan 27 – Jan 30 / Feb 03 – Feb 06 / Feb 07 – Feb 14 / Feb 10 – Feb 13 / Feb 14 – Feb 21 / Feb 17 – Feb 20 / Feb 21 – Feb 28 / Feb 24 – Feb 27 / Feb 28 – Mar 07 / Mar 03 – Mar 06 / Mar 06 – Mar 13 / Mar 13 – Mar 20 / Mar 17 Mar 20 / Mar 20 – Mar 27 / Mar 24 – Mar 27 / Apr 11 – Apr 14 / Apr 18 – Apr 21 / Apr 25 – Apr 28 / Other dates: There are more dates available than the ones we list here, experiment on your own.
- Tips: Use Tripadvisor to create a Hotel “short list”. Select “Sort by Traveler Ranked” after you plug in your dates and destination. Then select the Traveler Ranking filer to show “only 4* and up”. Use the resulting list of hotels to find the cheapest one with a high ranking.
- Tips: Hotel rates for Weekend dates are usually higher than the rates for Sunday through Thursday. Tripadvisor has a color-coded date calendar, red when the average hotel price for that day is more expensive, green for less expensive. You can use this to get an overview of what dates in the month are at a discount.
- Tips: Different booking websites will often have differing routes, prices, and availability. Before you finalize your purchase, do a quick check on BookingBuddy, Skyscanner, and Kayak to see if any other site or airline is offering a better deal.
