There Are Many Advantages To Traveling Off Season

by admin

For many (many) years, my husband traveled with students. Our kids learned at an early age that Dad would essentially be gone from March through June each year. Spring is considered high season in the student travel industry. If you’ve ever been to Washington D.C. in May, you know exactly what I mean! Popular student destinations are teeming with pubescent travelers, and lines and wait times are long. Maybe it’s time to consider the many advantages to traveling off season.


Speaking in student travel terms, off season is typically considered to be the fall term of the school year. Most teachers aren’t yet thinking about a trip. They’re probably focused on fundraising and figuring out where to go!



There are lots of excellent advantages to traveling off season, not the least of which is price. You can score some great deals on accommodations, transportation, attractions and dining simply by traveling with your group off peak times.


Smaller crowds, shorter lines, better seats and less stress- what more needs to be said?

Prime Picks

Traveling off season most likely means better hotels and motor coaches. If you’re not competing with countless other school groups, you can choose what works best for you.

Unique Experiences

There are amazing opportunities that exist ONLY when you travel off season, particularly closer to the holidays. If you’re heading to NYC, check out the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes. Washington D.C. hosts nightly events with the National Christmas Tree as the backdrop. Disney’s Candlelight Processional and Massed Choir Program is a spectacular performance opportunity only available in November and December.
