NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Travel search site momondo today launched the Travel Saver Calendar, a free tool to help budget-conscious consumers determine the best time of year for deals on flights to and hotel stays in nine top international destinations. Leveraging momondo’s expertise in international travel from the U.S., the Travel Saver Calendar gives travelers insight into which months are cheapest to fly to and stay in a hotel and makes it easy to plan the perfect getaway at the lowest price.
The Travel Saver Calendar uses data from momondo’s Flight + Hotel Study, which analyzed the average price of a round-trip flight to and a three-night stay at the most frequently booked hotels in nine popular European destinations. momondo studied airfares from New York airports to and hotel rates in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Copenhagen, Lisbon, London, Moscow, Paris and Rome.
“momondo is focused on helping people travel smarter, so we designed the Travel Saver Calendar to give travelers a simple way to help find the best time to travel throughout the year,” said momondo spokesperson Lasse Skole Hansen. “As a leader in international travel options from the U.S., we give people a wide range of options for finding flight and hotel options that work best for them.”
Lowest Prices in Winter
The Travel Saver Calendar shows that February and March are the least expensive months of the year to travel from New York to Europe, while July and December are the most expensive. In addition, Rome is cheapest in November, when the weather is still warm.
Best Summer Destinations
Americans looking for the cheapest flight and hotel deals in Europe this summer should consider Rome or Lisbon, according to the Calendar, and skip Berlin and Copenhagen. Moscow is also a relatively cheap international destination in June.
Travelers willing to wait until September will reap rewards: fares to and hotel costs in popular European destinations are significantly cheaper across the board vs. June through August – with Amsterdam, Barcelona and Copenhagen offering the cheapest options.
