In addition to the school calendar, there are times of the year when prices do see a dip.
You will find these cheaper fares falling when the less demand due to the calendar or even weather.
The best times of the year for a lower price (especially in the Caribbean) are:
- January (except for New Years week)
- Early February
- September and October
- Early November
