One of the most expensive destinations in the world, New York City may seem out of reach for budget travellers, but winter is the time to snag the best deals, including up to 40 per cent discounts on hotel rooms, plus savings on restaurant meals and the city’s famed stage shows. The thought of winter temperatures in NYC may give you cold feet, but there are many goodies in store for those who can brave the weather. The NYC Restaurant Week runs from February 16 to March 6, with reservations opening on February 2. The annual event offers three-course prix-fixe lunches for $25 and three-course prix-fixe dinners for $38 (excluding beverages, gratuities and taxes). During Broadway Week (January 20 to February 5; tickets on sale from January 9) and Off-Broadway Week (February 23 to March 8; tickets on sale from February 9), a two-for-one ticket deal in available for most shows. Hotel room rates are also significantly slashed. The best rates are on visitnycgo.com/hotels and reservation is possible through www.booking.com, the booking engine of NYC & Company, New York City’s official marketing, tourism and partnership organisation.
