How do you like to travel? With hordes of tourists on a sun soaked beach? Exploring snow covered mountains all by yourself? No matter what your dream trips look like, Last Minute’s new animated map can help you plan your trips by showing you a region’s busy and slow seasons.
The UK based travel site, Last Minute, created this live map to reduce the stress of trying to figure out the right time and place to travel when you have a set date in mind. The map changes from month to month, highlighting each countries’ high season, low season, and shoulder seasons. Not to mention, if you’re looking for cheap flights it helps to be familiar with your desired destinations’ travel seasons.
The map is easy to read, with just three colors guiding you.
RED– Indicates high travel season
TEAL: Indicates low travel season
YELLOW: Indicates ‘shoulder season,’ the month’s in between high and low season.
On the website, the map is just a constantly revolving GIF that doesn’t allow you to manually select the months. But we found a nice workaround by just saving the GIF which then allows you to scroll between the 12 monthly images that make up the annual map.
All in all, this map is a quick, easy, and efficient tool when choosing where you should travel according to your availability and preference of place. Us here at Resource Travel prefer a more remote and quiet approach to travel, so we are already using this map to plan some upcoming projects around a country’s shoulder and low seasons.
It’s the ultimate loophole to discover the best ways for planning a vacation or a travel job.
