You must have already started to plan what you’ll be doing in the winter holidays this year. It’d be a good idea to do a through research of the best deals before you settle on anything concrete.

So, TripAdvisor has come up with a few guidelines on the best time to book hotels for the winter holidays.

For hotel stays in the US, for example, it’s best to hold off and book in November, when hotel rates are up to 20% less than the highest annual prices, experts say.

For the guideline, experts analysed historical hotel booking and interest in nine popular regions around the world for the last two weeks of December. The best time to book was defined as periods when hotel prices were less than average for the destination.

Here are a few recommendations:

Europe

Asia

Booking after September can save travellers 16% versus the peak rate.
