As we usher in the New Year, most of us are thinking about our holidays for 2017. But weary post-Christmas wallets can limit our choices. Here is a pricing calendar for the coming year, to help travellers of all budgets find the best value-for-money destination for each month of the year.

These were not always the absolute cheapest week of the year (as the cheapest week sometimes coincided with the worst weather) but still had attractive pricing and temperatures compared to other weeks in the same city. And things like the city’s local events and holidays were also accounted for, as this can often affect an accommodation’s rates.
