Unfairly overlooked, an October holiday is a chance to beat the crowds while still catching a destination in its best light. And, as holidaymakers save for Christmas and rest up after summer, there are plenty of discounts to be had on flights, hotels and trips. Perhaps explore the capital less busy on a city break, take some time out with a beach resort, or swap seasons by heading somewhere exotic.
