Hotels.com's Labor Day Sale Is the Perfect Reason to Book a Shoulder Season Getaway
Just because summer is winding down doesn't mean you have to wait until Thanksgiving for your next vacation. Hotels.com is offering discounts starting at 20% on select hotels when you book by Sept. 2 and travel by Sept. 28.
Labor Day weekend signals the unofficial end to summer, and if Thanksgiving, the next major vacation holiday, just seems like an eternity away (because it is), you need to know about Hotels.com's Labor Day Sale. The site is offering 20% off select hotels if you book by Sept. 2 and travel by Sept. 28, which is perfect timing to take advantage of fall shoulder season, generally considered September and October.
Shoulder season offers lower prices, milder temperatures and often smaller crowds thanks to school being back in session and no major U.S. national holidays falling in September and October. Even if you can't swing a full week of vacation or have kids in school, you can probably fit in a long weekend trip to see the start of fall foliage or maybe a visit to your favorite college football town. Through Hotels.com's rewards program, if you stay 10 nights, you can get one night free. Browse hotels included in Hotels.com and start planning a trip - be sure to book by Sept. 2!
