Bridging days are helpful to extend annual leave. However, bridging days tend to be a hindrance when it comes to booking holiday bargains. Travel providers also know when a few days of work vacation can turn into a whole week or more.
When are there no holidays in Germany?
In the periods when there are school holidays, public holidays or opportunities for bridging days, travel offers are often more expensive than in the period when there are no national holidays on the calendar.
A vacation outside of the holiday season guarantees fewer family vacationers and increases the opportunity for travel bargains. For single travelers, the single room surcharge can also be cheaper in these off-peak times than in the holiday periods.
