Below are the best locations for a trip from March 12th to March 18th. We’ve taken into account rain, temperature, travel advisories for safety, and number of tourists in the area. In early to mid March each of these places are the perfect balance between temperate weather and smaller crowds, which also translates into better deals for tourists.
Because we’ve located areas and times where there is a greater chance for hotels/flights to be under capacity and weather is likely to be temperate and dry, the best time to book these 10 trips is usually within 1-4 weeks before travel.

4. Palmerston North, New Zealand
As with every place on this list, temperatures in Palmerston North feel excellent, rain is infrequent, and there are no travel advisories at the moment. Tourists looking for hotels and flights are uncommon during this time, so prices may be lower. Because it’s a little less common of a destination, massive crowds aren’t likely. We could also recommend visiting earlier than this, and the weeks following have weather that is almost as good as early to mid March.

5. Villasimius, Italy
With far fewer travelers booking during this time compared to the busiest months, hotels and airlines will probably offer some incentives to stay during this period. This is a good time to visit, because the weeks earlier are still seasonally less than ideal. If you’re planning to stay for more than a week, you’ll likely find enjoyable weather the whole time.
