Last minute holiday bookings used to be a great way to secure a bargain, but now that airlines charge more for late flight bookings, leaving it until the last-minute could end up costing you a whole lot more.
Early birds booking their 2015 holidays now are making great savings on long haul flights and luxury hotels, and if you are looking to travel during peak periods such as school holidays and Christmas, now is definitely the time to book your 2015 break.
Hotels offer a range of early booking incentives such as hotel room upgrades, free spa treatments, and complimentary excursions for those who make their reservations early, and with more availability and more choice at your fingertips, you can pick the hotel you want rather than making do with what is left in the weeks running up to your holiday.
Airlines run sales at this time of year too, and so if you are looking for a long-haul flight to Cape Town, Antigua, Sydney or Rio de Janeiro, now is the perfect time to secure your flight tickets and a bargain with the likes of Virgin Atlantic and British Airways. With discounts of up to £200 per person, you can make huge savings by booking your flights early – last minute flight bargains simply do not exist anymore.
Popular attractions such as Peru’s Inca Trail and Gorilla Trekking Tours in Rwanda have limited availability, so if you leave your trip until the last minute you could well be disappointed. You could book a Mount Kilimanjaro Tour last minute, if you haven’t prepared mentally and physically for the challenge, there is little chance of you making it to Uhuru Peak – so is it really worth it?
Holidays create memories and memories make up our lives, so don’t leave your holidays to chance, book in advance and enjoy the benefits of being an early bird!
