Advantages of booking early

We all know that booking your holiday early means you have a chance of getting better deals and a larger choice. This year, booking early has never been so important, especially if you have your annual holiday (or more). As travel consultants, we have seen a large price increase in popular destinations like Spain and The Greek Islands, especially the closer it is to the departure date. Therefore, I am here to tell you why you should book your holiday early…

You get the first pick:

Wherever you choose to travel, you will find so much choice and plenty of availability with booking early. This way, you will find your perfect holiday. You don’t want to end up in Magaluf if you wanted a peaceful and relaxing break in Gran Canaria. You’re more likely to go where you want if you take the option to book early.

Less stress:

You will find that with booking early, you will be much more prepared rather than having the last-minute worry. You won’t have the stress of paying your holiday upfront, and with deposits starting at £60 per person, you have up to 14 weeks before you depart to pay this.

As there will be more options on the market, you would be in complete control of your booking. You would be able to make your holiday exactly how you want it – you’ll be able to nail the destination you want to go to and have more control over the budget.

You have time to do your summer shop, get the latest trends and designs and check out what the shops have to offer. This way, you won’t be rushing around 2 days before you travel, trying to find summer clothes, especially when it’s winter!

You also have time to buy drib and drabs throughout the year. You can find that one-week sun cream will be on offer, currency rates will be higher and before you know it, you’ve bought half your suitcase.

More offers:

If you’re planning to book your holiday at such short notice, you will find that prices go up by at least 25% and the offers that were there, have expired.

When holidays are first released, you will find many more discounted or free child prices, room upgrades costing as little as £8 per person and offers on upgrading luggage and transfers.

Additionally, if you’re planning on going further afield, it is best to book as soon as the prices come out as they are more affordable.

What else?

You have longer to look forward to your holiday! You have plenty of time to research your destination, find out what bars and restaurants are in the area or what excursions you can take part in.
