Why go on holiday in September?

It is often said that those who know best tend to travel during the month of September, but ... why is this so? Many reasons support the claim that choosing to go on holiday in this month is one of the most convenient alternatives to make the most of your time off. To confirm this, we will explore below the most convincing arguments that support this claim.

Fewer people

Most people move during the months of July and August. This has to do with the time off from work, the children's holidays and a calendar that confirms everywhere else throughout Europe is also the holiday season. This makes most cities saturated with people and as a result, it becomes more difficult to relax. For those looking for more authentic landscapes and without so many people, September is the ideal month.

Best prices

The prices in September are other reasons that wield those who know more about travelling at this time of the year. During July and August, the prices tend to be at their highest but in September, they return to normal. Thus, accommodation, restaurants, flights and excursions are considerably cheaper. For the same price you pay in high season, you can get higher quality options in September. Therefore, if you want to save money or spend less on each trip, opting for this month may be your best bet without having to make any compromises. 

Pleasant climate

Climate is an important factor when organising a trip. September is, in Europe, one of the most peaceful and pleasant months to travel: the heat is not suffocating in any city, but you can still stroll in short sleeves during the day. In addition, it is possible to enjoy a good swim on the beach so no activity is excluded by travelling this month. To avoid suffering from excessive cold or extreme heat, September can be the most valuable option.

Seize the moment

Time is one of the determining factors in any journey. If we visit every site on our trip, we won't be able to take part in all the activities that we want to do. The availability of too many restaurants, museums and tours in the midsummer months not only generate bad mood but can also result in the cancellation of activities. Thus, in September, most means of transport are empty so you get better mobility and a more enjoyable arrangement of activities along those who also want to escape the hustle and bustle and make the most of their time.
