How To Book A Money-Saving Trip To The Carribean

A Caribbean vacation can be spectacular without breaking the bank. If you know a few tricks, you can keep costs down without sacrificing any of the fun.

Travel in the Off-Season

Most people hit the Caribbean islands in the winter or for spring break. The best time to go is in the fall when hurricane season dies down. This is a great time to visit some of the most popular destinations, such as the Bahamas and Jamaica, because resorts are less crowded and will compete for your business.

Book an All-Inclusive Vacation

All-inclusive vacations are excellent for travelers who don't like surprises. Right upfront, you should know what you're getting and what it costs. Make sure to search the fine print for hidden fees, and ask what is included and not included in your package.

Nix the Amenities

If you're the kind of traveler who prefers to be out and about, exploring and soaking up the local color on the white sand Caribbean beaches, then go for a no-frills resort. There is no point in paying for extras if you don't plan to spend a lot of time around your room.

Hit Other Islands

Caribbean vacations usually make people think of Bermuda, Jamaica, and the Bahamas, but other islands are just as beautiful with less traffic and better prices. Consider going to the Dominica, Grenada, or Turks & Caicos.

Take a Cruise

A cruise is a great option when visiting the Caribbean. You get to spend a relaxing time on the ship with plenty of activities and meals (often included in your fare), and cruise ships usually hit a few different islands.
