Why You Should Take a Trip This Fall

Fall means back to school for some. But if you have a job, it just means that Summer Fridays are over. As September gets underway, going on vacation might be the last thing on your mind. But you should start planning a trip this fall! And here are the reasons why.

  • Expenses: People are less likely to travel in the fall. So ticket fares and hotel costs will drop dramatically, making it more affordable for you to head out of town.
  • Fall Foliage: Sure, the weather might be chillier if you’re traveling in October. But that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck with the scenery! Depending on where you go, you might catch some beautiful fall foliage – especially throughout the Northeast.
  • Crowds: Summer is fun. But it’s also peak tourist season. So there’s going to be a long line for pretty much anything, especially if you head to a beach town or resort. That won’t be the case in the fall. If you truly want to get away and mellow out, the fall is the perfect time for that. Plus, you’ll get a much better feel for a city when it’s not choked by tourists.  
  • You Deserve It: This is last on our list, but it is the most important reason. One of the best ways to up your productivity is to take a break. Continuing to work and work will do you absolutely no good.

But as with any, trip there are a few things to consider before you book those tickets.

  • Double Check: Depending on your desired destination, fall might be their peak season. So do your research before you go anywhere! If you are heading someplace during the off-season, certain places and activities might not be open. Make sure you’re okay with that before you go.
  • Book Ahead: A spur-of-the-moment trip is romantic, but it can also be costly. Save the most money by booking as far in advance as you can. And remember to clear your browser cache before you head to travel sites like Expedia or Orbitz – you’ll find better deals that way.
  • Work: Notify your employer well in advance that you’ll be away, especially if you’ll miss multiple days. You may be taking a trip, but the rest of your co-workers will be in the office! This can work to your advantage if you something important comes up that you need them to take care of for you. But you need to let everybody know in advance.
