If the choice of destination is left to them, they would like to set off in a group with friends away from the watchful eyes of their parents and teachers and go to a place where they can plan their own vacation and get the feeling that they too have grown up.

Planning a Cheap Vacation on an Expensive Destination

A lot of people thought that visiting Aspen, Paris, New York, Napa, and Hawaii meant that youd have to bring a lot of money. Most of them spend their whole lives saving up for that one trip. Spending too much on a single trip, though, isnt very practical. Neither is it a smart choice, because you can save as much as half of the peak season cost if you only know when to book your trip.

Sometimes, you dont even have to time it during the off-season. A lot of people wait for the rates to take a dip during the high season (airplane companies do hold promos) before they purchase their tickets. These discounts range from 20% to a spectacular 50%, so you should definitely keep your eyes peeled.

Maybe theyre not as cheap as your less-than-stellar summer destinations. However, they are at least more affordable during these times. Below are the most desired travel destinations and the best times to book your flight.

London on spare change

Planning a Cheap Vacation on an Expensive Destination

London can be a pretty pricey destination especially if youre coming from miles and miles away. However, if you book your flights from November through March, youll find the hotel rates lower than usual. This is probably due to the fact that these are the colder months, and most people in Europe travel to other parts of the world to enjoy warmer climates.

If youre from Los Angeles, though, a bit of the cold biting your knickers wont do you harm. You might just find the old country charm of London an experience worth investing in, at least for a week or so. Good news, too, because during these cold months, the British Airways and Virgin Atlantic dish out their cheapest airfares. This will give you more money to spend on exquisite London cuisine and much-needed culture.
With the holidays just around the corner, London is also teeming with plays and dances to go to. If youre a party animal, you might just find pubs in London which give you a little bit of Ireland without actually going to Ireland. Whichever way you choose to spend your time here, you can immerse yourself in the English folks elusive Rs without putting a dent on your wallet.

Zooming to Hawaii

Planning a Cheap Vacation on an Expensive Destination

For years, now, this honeymoon destination remained a permanently expensive summer spot, thanks to its pristine beaches and untouchable Hawaiian charm. However, if theres anything good about the recession, its the fact that it made a lot of expensive vacation spots slightly more affordable for ordinary people like you and me. Most of the hoteliers in Hawaii now offer the lowest room rates its ever offered in years.

The airfares to Hawaii also dropped to at least 1/3 of its usual rate. The deals even sweeter if you travel during the low-peak season which is between September and early December. Of course, low seasons in a summer get away means a few rain clouds and showers here and there. If occasional showers wont dampen your mood, though, you should go ahead and book your flight during this time.
