Cheap-Travel-Off-Season-Destination-Travel-Guide-2015-2016-feature.jpg

For those who only get to travel once a while, heading to a place that is brimming with tourists would hardly be a good place to unwind in. Vacationing during off-seasons lets you enjoy the tranquillity of the place along with giving you an unhindered view of all the places you intend to visit.

The best part of travelling during offseason is that you will never have to bear the brunt of your best pictures being photobombed by unknown tourists. So it’s you, your loved ones, and the scenic view in the backdrop.

Another reason to travel off-season would be the jaw-dropping price at which you can get your travel tickets and accommodations sorted. Where you might have to shell out a fortune to get to your dream destination during peak seasons, going off-season lowers your budget a great deal, giving you more advantages.

Going to off-beat locations, especially, lets you save all the more while having the time of your lives. To make your stay truly memorable, Club Mahindra has a number of resorts throughout the country and abroad where you can as per your wish.

You can choose to visit Club Mahindra Ashtamudi or Club Mahindra Kumarakom for their waterfront locations. These resorts are ideal to unwind at and soak in the natural beauty.

From attractively furnished rooms to state-of-the-art amenities, the resort lets you relax and keep your minds at rest, making it the perfect holiday for you. You can also go quad biking, play a game of beach volleyball or cricket with your families and other guests, or let your artistic side out with an exciting game of paintball.

Heading to Kerala during off-seasons will let you witness the town at its best while saving up on your budget.

Apart from all this, getting a leave during the off-seasons from your respective workplaces is easier, leaving your boss happy too. So make sure to check out the website to know everything you need to about Club Mahindra membership fees to have the holiday of a lifetime this year.
