Oh the wonders of the Travel and Tourism industry, we divide a perfectly normal year into Seasons, mostly based on the actual seasons but also on past trends.
But what does that mean for you, the visitor/ guest?
We at Dav1es Exclusive Holiday Rentals work with three basic seasons – Peak, High and Low Season. We use these seasons to determine rate structures.
Peak Season covers the busiest time of the year here on the Garden Route – the December/ January holidays – 13 December to 11 January
High Season covers the remaining Summer/Spring months – 12 January to 30 April and again from 01 October to 12 December
Low Season covers the Winter months 01 May to 30 September – with the exception of the Knysna Oyster Festival in July [this year the exact dates are 04 to 13 July 2014]
What advantage does Low Season have for you?
1 – The area is quieter than the rest of the year. Restaurants are easier to book, beaches are not crowded.
2 – The climate on the coast is mild (High teens to Low twenties – Celsius!) and you are sure to have many sunny days to explore the area.
3 – The Garden Route offers some awesome low season events, many based on sports and food.
4 – You can save up to 50% on accommodation (when compared to Peak Season rates) and still get the same exclusive, luxury accommodation and service Dav1es has to offer.
Rates average around R3,500.00 per night for a 4 bedroom house/ villas sleeping 8 guests
5 – You can stay for fewer days. The Dav1es minimum stay for Low Season is only 3 nights which means you can easily take a mid week or weekend break (great for local South African travellers)
