SINGAPORE, 3 May 2018: TripAdvisor has identified the best times to book hotels at top destinations worldwide.

Its Best Times To Book report released Monday shows when travellers can consistently find and book the lowest hotel prices for trips between June and August this year.

To glean these insights, TripAdvisor analysed historical hotel pricing data to identify the time periods offering the lowest rates on hotels in popular destinations worldwide.

It concluded the “best time to book” was when hotel prices were consistently less than the destination average.
