“Get away in May” don’t wait for summer. I’ve heard that May is the perfect time to take that long deserved vacation so if possible take off before Memorial Day. You will find smaller crowds and much bigger savings and it will be well worth your rush. Beat those going off to Europe by taking off in May. I am told that May is one of the best times to go to the French Riviera since the average high temperature is about 72F and you won’t find the beaches crowded – elbow to elbow with people. Right now you can get a round trip flight ticket from New York and three weeks at a three star hotel for approximately $1230 per person. This is about 35% less than what you would pay in June, July or August.
Another option Dublin, and when you visit in May, prices are 20% less than they would be during summer months. However, if you don’t have a destination in mind just pick one or sign up with Travel zoo. You’ll find flights and lodge packages with availabilities ranging from days to months in advance. Based on prior years’ statistics you could save anywhere from 30% to 50%. Other great places to visit this year includes Hawaii, Aruba, Iceland, Mexico and the continental US for Colorado to the Carolinas.
