We understand there are many events a family has to plan around in order to find some time to get away. School, holidays, work responsibilities and vacation days dictate many people’s travel decisions. But if you’re retired or otherwise have a little more flexibility in your schedule, you can reap the benefits of an off-season vacation to South Padre Island.
Booking a vacation during the “off peak season” results in better rental rates, easier air travel, better deals on dining and shopping and even better customer service. From the moment you start making reservations until you return home, the savings can be huge for an off-season vacation.
August is the true peak season when school is out and families travel to the coast for summer holidays. The rental rates are at a premium during this time, the restaurants are full and the parking can sometimes be quite a challenge.
Autumn is an off-peak season with great weather and excellent rates. This period lasts from September through early December. It’s a preferred time to be here by golfers and many others.
From January through early March is “Winter Texan” season. Retirees from Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nebraska and Canada converge on South Padre for a couple of months of warm climate and relaxation. They are able to take advantage of our inexpensive monthly rates on condos.
Spring Break sees a boost in rates mid-March. But, there are some rentals that are restricted and do not rent to spring breakers during this time. Therefore families and couples over 25 yrs old can get some pretty good rates on rentals at this time.
Any time between October and early May is sure to provide you with phenomenal weather. The weather is at its absolute best without the heat of summer. During this period of time the beaches are mostly empty. The restaurants have ample tables and servers are eager to please. The stores often have sales and special pricing and even the spas have availability.
Other benefits of off-season vacations are that you can also take advantage of some great deals on airfare. Watch for specials on Southwest and American or enjoy daily service from Dallas and choose the best time that will suit you for that off-season getaway.
We look forward to having you stay with us at Padre Getaways for your off-season vacation this year!
