Some even let them fall by a third which is a great saving, even if you have all the money in the whole wide world. The Daily Mail (a wonderful portal for information) also mentioned that, if you're guilt-tripped into staying at home during this month, there's not much reason to panic as - excepting the actual Christmas and New Year period - these lower rates are usually offered until the end of February, leaving you plenty of time to take advantage.
Even better, heading off on a city break to Amsterdam during the low season means that flights are often less expensive and, if you're easy about your dates of travel, you might be able to get there and back for between £50 and £70. And, if you're someone who likes to check out foreign exhibitions, going on holiday around these times means that you won't be fighting for poll position in front of your favourite painting at the Van Gogh Museum.
If you don't make it to Holland before March, however, make sure that you check out the Miracle festival, which happens every year. Here, tourists and residents can take part in the Silent Procession around the city streets that starts with everyone congregating in one of the parish churches and goes on throughout the night.
