Travel at the right time & save: Study
October 10 (TravelAndy): Travelling when it’s not the peak season can save you more than 50 per cent in accommodation, says travel booking website Agoda based on a recent study.
For instance, if you travel to Berlin in January instead of September, you will find rooms costing as much as 51 per cent cheaper. The figure is 49 per cent in Barcelona. Rooms are around 23 per cent cheaper than average in Istanbul from November to February. The June prices are 21 per cent more.
The study also adds that the best time to find the best deals depends on where you are going. While mid-March is a good time for Europe when the average room price in major cities are around 20 per cent cheaper, Sydney and New York room prices are down in July.
However, there are not too many low-season discounts available in Asia, where the prices remain fairly consistent throughout the year.
The study is based on booking data from the site in 2014.
