UK travellers are increasingly opting to travel out of season in order to get the best deals on the market, according to a new survey.

Out-of-season deals are proving increasingly popular with British tourists, according to research released by Hotels.com today.

The survey revealed that long-haul destinations, including south Asia and the South Pacific, are receiving a lot of attention, with searches for holidays in these locations in the low season rising by as much as 200 per cent year-on-year.

People booking holidays to India could take advantage of reductions to hotel costs in Kerala, where room rates drop by almost one-third (31 per cent) during the region’s rainy season.

Visitors to Australia may also be able to make significant savings if they are prepared to travel around the country during its winter months. In Queensland, accommodation prices can fall by as much as 68 per cent in June, which is one of the region’s colder months.

Last month, Hotels.com published its Hotel Price Index which found that global accommodation prices had fallen by 17 per cent in the first half of the year, bringing them to their lowest level since 2004.
