It's widely acknowledged that travelling abroad during the summer tends to be more expensive than at any other time of the year. Essentially, it's a matter of supply and demand. The more people that want to travel at a specific time of year, the more airlines, hotels, local businesses and attractions feel able to charge.
How long is a summer?
In Majorca, the summer lasts from June to September. It's during this time of the year that temperatures are typically at their warmest, with average highs of 28°C. What's more, it tends to rain approximately 1.5 days in every 30 during these months, and most of that is usually in September. Since extensive sunshine is one of this island's chief selling points, it makes sense that so many more holidaymakers want to make the most of it at the same time.
Is winter the best time to visit?
You might think that December and January would be the cheapest time of year to head to Majorca but it's not actually the case. This is simply because a significant number of holidaymakers look for the opportunity to enjoy warm weather during the winter.
Where does that leave me?
Don't despair; Majorca's temperature doesn't drop off a cliff as soon as October starts. In fact, during that month you can expect to experience average highs of 23°C. Even in January and February, temperatures tend to reach an average peak of 15°C. This is certainly a lot warmer than one can expect in the UK at the same time of year.
So when is the cheapest time to visit?
If you want to enjoy Majorca and aren't too bothered about experiencing the highest temperatures, spring and autumn are good times to visit. It's at these times that you're more likely to pick up great-value deals.
