Peak definition: get a summary, overview, and a better understanding of this term in the Dauntless Jaunter Travel Glossary.

Updated: 2017-03-27.

Peak is a primary travel season, independently determined; what may be off-peak tourism season for one destination might be peak season for another.

On some forms of transportation, such as rail transport, peak and off-peak may refer to different times of the day rather than seasons; peak may correspond to a local rush hour, while off-peak may coincide with weekends and holidays.
