Summer is one of the best times to explore a new place thanks to warm weather and school breaks, but that also means it can be one of the busiest and most expensive times to travel.

Knowing the right time to book peak season travel can make all the difference when it comes to savings, which is why TripAdvisor analyzed data on hotel bookings across 10 of America’s most popular summer 2018 destinations.

 

To find the best time to book, the TripAdvisor team looked at pricing data from July 2016 through August 2017, finding the window “when hotel prices were consistently less than the destination average.”
