Did you know that the weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are a great time to score a deal on a Caribbean or Hawaiian getaway? We did, so we checked availability and found fantastic rates at 20 beach resorts on 10 islands.
We'll all be piling turkey onto our plates early this year (on November 22), so that adds another week to the post-Thanksgiving/pre-Christmas travel window that's one of the best times of the year to score bargain hotel rates and airfares — especially from New York and Miami. And if you're looking to vacation on a tropical island in the Caribbean or Hawaii, late November and early December typically deliver great weather, too. Also worth noting: Since deals are offered annually during this period, if you can't pack your sunscreen for a last-minute pre-holiday getaway this year, make a New Year's resolution to book one in 2019. Here are 10 islands in the Caribbean and Hawaii with great hotel rates (most under $250 a night and a few around $150 a night) between November 25 and December 20, 2018.
