As far as the calendar is concerned, summer is over. Finito. But the upshot is that the shoulder season is now in full swing in places like Europe, and there are great deals out there for travelers.
What’s shoulder season? To put it simply, it’s the period of time between a destination’s peak season and off season—a little “shoulder” of time when the weather can still be pleasant, but the chaotic crowds have thinned. Since fewer travelers means more hotel vacancies, Europe vacation deals start to show up in droves, making overseas travel exceptionally affordable.
I sat down with Fox Business for a segment on last-minute Labor Day weekend travel deals. Watch and enjoy!

This is the first summer that my husband and I haven’t taken our kids on a family vacation, and we feel guilty that we haven’t gone anywhere. We’re on a tight budget but would like to do a quick trip within the next few weeks before the kids go back to school. I’ve done some research…and last minute trips are expensive! Is there anything I can do to find a cheap last minute vacation?
