“If you have the flexibility, don’t wait for spring break to take a trip to these warm weather destinations,” said Jeanenne Tornatore, senior editor at Orbitz.com. “February offers better deals and fewer crowds than March and April.”


Orbitz Insider Index: Where to Score the Best Warm Weather Deals


According to Orbitz.com, cities including Las Vegas, Orlando and San Diego reign supreme stateside for travelers looking to escape the cold at an affordable price. Internationally, Mexico leads the pack. Hotel costs are between 10-20 percent lower in Cancun and 20-25 percent lower in Riviera Maya if travelers opt to book a vacation in February instead of March.


Beat the Breakers: Destinations such as Cancun, Tulum, and Las Vegas are always among the most popular cities for spring breakers. Though, with higher demand comes higher costs. Travelers looking to visit these top cities without paying premium prices should consider a trip just one-month prior in February.


Prime Time for Theme Parks: Both Orlando and Orange County made this year’s top 10 list indicating it’s an ideal time to pay less to stay near some of the most popular theme park attractions. Specifically, pushing that trip to Orange County until March, a hotel will cost 10-15 percent more than it would in February.


Florida in February: Southern Florida destinations including Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, and the Florida Keys are typically in high demand this time of year. However, deals can still be found by booking mid-week and looking for hotels that may be a block or two off the beach.
