Save Money by Visiting Locations During their Shoulder Seasons

The period between high and low travel seasons—also known as the “shoulder seasons” is a great time for travelers to save money and beat the crowds. What’s more, “the shoulder seasons also provide an opportunity for travelers to have access to high-end luxury accommodations they might not ever have been able to afford normally during peak season,” says FlipKey’s resident Travel Expert Jen Gold.
