What is the best time to find a cheap Caribbean holiday?

Generally speaking, the best time to find a cheap Caribbean holiday is during the low season, which runs from mid-April to mid-December. However, the best months to go are arguably between June-August.

Throughout August, flights are cheap, as well as hotels and vacation homes. If you're seeking a cruise or an all-inclusive resort package, the winter months of October, November and mid-December are your best shot at landing the best deal.

Which islands are the cheapest to visit?

  • Cancun (Mexico)

  • Montego Bay (Jamaica)

Cheap places to stay in the Caribbean

When booking for a holiday in the Caribbean, you might find a lack of options on sites like Airbnb or even hostels. Instead, you have hotels and vacation homes to choose from. Splurge a little more on an all-inclusive holiday package and you can have everything from drinks to food, to even activities paid for in advance.

To keep costs low, you'll always want to buy travel insurance. Ensure that you're covered for all the activities you want to get up to so that there aren't any additional expenses you need to worry about in case of any emergencies.
