The Benefits of Midweek Travel to North Lake Tahoe

1. Save Money on Your Reservation

The basics of finance suggest that the more people want a service, product, or experience, the more they’re willing to pay for it. Businesses know this — and weekend rates at vacation rentals and hotels are no exception. Friday through Sunday rates are almost always higher than any other days of the week. For example, a four-night stay at one of our rental homes is $660 cheaper for a Monday – Friday stay as opposed to a Friday through Tuesday stay. That’s a lot of extra cash to keep in your pocket!

2. Book Cheaper Flights

According to U.S. News, the cheapest day and time to fly is Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. EST. The two other money-saving days to fly are Wednesday and Saturday. Those who travel often know that the secret weapon to saving money on your flight is to fly midweek. The difference can add up to hundreds of dollars! Now, add these savings to your lodging savings and you have nearly a $1,000 (or more!) of extra cash. That’s enough to put away for your trip!

3. Avoid the Crowds at Local Attractions

Don’t like to wait hours to get into the best restaurant in town? Don’t want to fight for a spot on Kings Beach? Midweek travel is a great way to experience our area like a local! 

Start your day at Syd’s Bagelry & Espresso without having to compete for a table. Listen around you as locals conduct business calls and catch up with friends. If you listen close enough, you might just uncover some of the locals’ favorite spots in Lake Tahoe! If you visit in the winter, you can shred the powder without having to avoid another skier at every turn. For summer travelers, midweek travel is a great way to enjoy the sparkling blues waters of Lake Tahoe in peace.
