What is Peak Season?

Peak season or high season is the opposite of low season and is used to indicate the time of the year in which the majority of travel occurs to any specific destination. Similarly, the phrase is often used as an indicator of how expensive a particular flight may cost. 

The general rule of thumb is that flight prices are higher during peak season and lower during low season.

International flights experience the most variation in seasonal changes while domestic flights experience less temporal price variation.
