A month by month calendar of thriftiest N. American destinations to visit in 2018

Booking.com says that July will be the most affordable time of year to visit New York in 2018. ― AFP picNEW YORK, Jan 7 ― With a new travel year unfolding before us, the most eager among us are already plotting out their 2018 holidays.

For those with lighter post-holiday wallets and budget-conscious travel styles, online hotel reservation site Booking.com has broken down the best value-for-money destinations to visit across North America for every month of the year.

For the travel calendar, analysts first looked at the average nightly rate of three to five-star accommodations in the most popular global cities. They then looked at the yearly overview of pricing fluctuations before determining the best weeks for visiting chosen destinations.

Overall, the calendar predictably suggests hitting up destinations during off-peak seasons. For instance, July is deemed the best time to visit the Big Apple, when accommodations are 25 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year, and when many locals have fled the concrete jungle's stifling heat.

January in San Diego was 37 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

February in Las Vegas was 43 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

March in Montreal was 22 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

April in Toronto was 27 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

May in Orlando was 18 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

June in Miami was 39 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

July in New York City was 25 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

August in New Orleans was 45 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

September in Washington, DC was 26 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

October in Los Angeles was 14 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.

November in San Francisco was 31 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year.
