As summer comes to a close, it is now open season for off-season travel.
Some of the best travel deals are found during offpeak times from September to mid-December.
"The best deals are in Mexico and the Riviera Maya. We book a ton of people there from September to December," said Travel Answers owner Helen Kleithermes, who's been in the travel industry more than 27 years.
"Sometimes it's almost half of what you would pay if you went in June or July," she continued.
She recommends allinclusive resorts where drinks, food and gratuities are included.
