The Benefits of Traveling Midweek

You Can Find Fantastic Midweek Deals

Here’s a travel hack: Since the majority of workers wait until the weekend to go on a trip, hotels and B&Bs have more availability during the week, resulting in lower prices. The same goes for restaurants and attractions. Since most businesses don’t get crowded during the week, that’s when you can find the best specials. So, treat yourself to a happy hour with the extra money you’re saving!

We Pay You!

Here at Farmers Guest House, we actually pay you when vacationing midweek. You can book our Two Night Special between Sunday and Thursday, and receive a $25 gift card to Log Cabin Steakhouse or Vinny Vanucchi’s Little Italy. Plus, you probably won’t encounter wait times and crowds at a restaurant in the middle of the week.

Most People Don’t Know the Secret Yet

Since most people don’t know the accommodation rates are often lower in the middle of the week, you can expect to face less traffic and less crowds. When you travel midweek, you can have an intimate getaway without waiting in lines or being squished by people at popular tourist attractions. The crowds will arrive on the weekends when you’re at home relaxing.

You Have Unused PTO That You Need to Get Rid Of

Let’s face it, you don’t know what you’re saving that last bit of PTO for. Maybe you’re waiting for an emergency, where you need to request a last-minute day off. U.S. Travel reports that more than 55% of workers neglected to use all of their paid time off in 2018. That means more than 768 million vacation days were wasted.

You have vacation days for a reason. You deserve those days to yourself, so book that vacation!
