MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Whether you are visiting far away friends and family, or just looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the holidays at home, online travel agency, Vayama.com, is the premiere international travel resource, with the best set of fares this season. And it’s not too late to plan holiday travel from Thanksgiving through the New Year.

Savvy vacationers can take advantage of the many perks of traveling this fall and winter, including:

Experience a white Christmas and your favorite winter sports at some of the world’s best snowy destinations, including Niesko Village in Japan or Mzaar in Lebanon
Enjoy smaller crowds at major tourist locales, such as the National Gallery in London and the Museum Kampa in Prague, Czech Republic
Visit some of the worlds biggest holiday markets and yuletide festivals, such as the Cologne Christmas market in Germany,the Budapest Christmas Fair, festive lights in Slovenia’s Ljubljana, Santa Claus Village in Finland and shopping haven ‘Christkindlesmarkt’ in Nuremberg, Germany
Ring in the New Year at one of the world’s many celebrations featuring major pyrotechnics, including the extravagant show over the Sydney opera house and harbor bridge, Taiwan’s tallest skyscraper exploding with fireworks at midnight or the intricate light design at the Temple of Heaven in Bejing
Taste international holiday meals and other dishes popular mostly in the winter time, like the Czech Republic traditional Christmas dinner of fried carp and potato salad, or raclette, a warm cheese dish, served in Switzerland and France when the weather turns cold
Soak up some sun in warmer spots like Australia, Egypt, the Canary Islands, Cancun, Nicaragua, Belize, Panama or Argentina

“Traveling during the winter or for specific holidays is a really wonderful time to explore the rich cultures and experience the unique celebrations around the world,” explains Ted Jansen, Executive Vice President at Travix International, and head of Vayama.com. “Though the weather might be colder in most places, people are always amazed to learn how much there still is to see and do.”

Vayama’s international experts also recommend adjusting searches to find ‘side door’ airlines and cities. This means smaller regional airlines, flying in and out of neighboring cities and secondary airports rather than major ones. Take for example these major international airports have great ‘side door’ airports that can be more affordable alternates:

London Heathrow (LHR) alternates London Gatwick (LGW) or London Stansted (STN)
Beijing Airport (PEK) alternate Nanyuan Airport (NAY)
Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport (CDG) alternate Paris-Orly (ORY)
Suvarnabhumi Airport Bangkok (BKK) alternate Don Mueang International Airport (DMK)
Metro Manila Airport (MNL) alternate Clark International Airport (CRK)
Shanghai Pudong International Airport (PVG) alternate Wuxi Airport (WUX)
Incheon International Airport in Seoul (ICN) alternate Gimpo International Airport (GMP)
Tel Aviv Yafo (TLV) alternate Sde Dov Airport (SDV)
New Delhi (DEL) alternate Amritsar Airport (ATQ)
Rome’s Ciampino Airport (CIA) alternate Sant’Egidio Airport (PEG)

Vayama.com Helps Travelers Make the Most of Europe’s Shoulder Season

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., August 29, 2012 – As summer draws to a close, hopeful travelers can take advantage of the European shoulder season with online travel agency, Vayama.com. A leader in international travel, Vayama.com can attest to this well kept secret and works to present customers with the best flight fares and hotel rates available.

“For savvy travelers, September and October is the perfect time to visit Europe,” explains Ted Jansen, Executive Vice President Americas at Travix International, and head of Vayama.com. “With fewer people traveling than during the high season, there is more availability in almost every destination. That translates to more deals and discounted rates. We’ve observed travelers saving as much as 20-30% on airfare when booking their fall travels with Vayama.com.”

In addition to air and hotel discounts, visiting major attractions and museums is often more affordable and convenient due to shorter wait times and commonly discounted admission fees.

As the warm weather holds, locals return from their summer travels and kick off seasonal celebrations such as Oktoberfest in Germany or the Eurochocolate festival in Italy. There is no shortage of activities or sights to see.

Vayama.com’s extensive offering of airlines, international flights and low fares helps travelers book not only the major European cities such as Paris, Rome, Barcelona and Munich, but also provides access to many remote and less traveled destinations as well. Some trips worth considering this fall include:

London, England – Now that the Olympics have wrapped up, it is a great time to tour this world-class city without the crowds and inflated prices.

Reykjavik, Iceland – Marvel at the Northern Lights or enjoy an adventurous trip of unique outdoor excursions before the cold weather sets in. Those looking to relish in local culture can even participate in the annual sheep-rounding ritual in September.

Budapest, Hungary – Experience the country’s rich history and vibrant cityscapes without the buzz of tourists and traffic. Though the temperature begins to come down in September, the weather is still warm enough to comfortably explore the hills around Budapest and Northern Uplands.
