Book your summer vacation early
It’s always in your best interest to book your summer vacation early. If you plan on flying to your destination, for example, it will be much easier to find seats on your preferred flights if you book in March than if you were to wait until the last minute. (If you do wait until the last minute, follow these eleventh-hour travel tips!) The same thing applies to hotels, where prices are based on supply and demand. What’s more, tour operators often provide financial incentives for early booking, with companies like Trafalgar offering savings up to $466—a significant discount that adds up if you’re travelling with a partner, or in a larger group.
