For those with lighter post-holiday wallets and budget-conscious travel styles, online hotel reservation site Booking.com has broken down the best value-for-money destinations to visit across North America for every month of the year.

For the travel calendar, analysts first looked at the average nightly rate of three to five-star accommodations in the most popular global cities. They then looked at the yearly overview of pricing fluctuations before determining the best weeks for visiting chosen destinations.

Overall, the calendar predictably suggests hitting up destinations during off-peak seasons. For instance, July is deemed the best time to visit the Big Apple, when accommodations are 25 per cent more affordable than the most expensive month of the year, and when many locals have fled the concrete jungle's stifling heat.
