Christmas planning in July? It just makes sense!
Here we are at the end of June and the holidays are six months away, but if you have visions of traveling the world with your friends and family during the holiday season the time to start planning is right now.
If you are wondering why, here are five great reasons.
Booking early guarantees the resort, rooms and flights you want!
There is nothing like wanting to take your family to a particular resort, like a Hard Rock or Disney resort and finding out they are sold out for the dates you want to go. Waiting until the last minute guarantees you will settling for second, or even third choice. Don’t limit yourself to settling for whatever available travel your agent finds at the last minute.
It’s important that you start as soon as possible so that you can be able to make reservations to the resorts that you really want to go to.
Booking early will save you money!
Booking your flights and hotel room way before departure date will save you money, and let you enjoy planning a lot more. Booking early makes it easier for your travel advisor to include all the excursions you want and also will help them attain more amenities and privileges for free. Isn’t that a pretty good reason?
Booking early is less stressful!
We all know the stress involved with planning any vacation, but if you start early you will have more time to decide where and when to go, and will guarantee that Disney Cruise your 7-year-old wants is booked! So, if you start planning now, celebrating the holidays will be a lot better without worrying about the details.
Booking early means friends and family may be able to join you!
With advanced notice, your travel advisor can hold rooms or cabins for your friends and family to be able to join you. Group travel is almost impossible between Thanksgiving and New Year if not planned ahead.
Booking a vacation is good for your health!
According to an article by Psychology Today, vacations are good for our physical and mental health.
“Vacations have the potential to break into the stress cycle. We emerge from a successful vacation feeling ready to take on the world again. We gain perspective on our problems, get to relax with our families and friends, and get a break from our usual routines.”
So if you’re dreaming about spending a holiday vacation on a warm, sunny beach or skiing at your favorite ski lodge, call your travel advisor today and start planning. As your holiday approaches and you’re busy shopping and buying presents, you won’t be stressing about your holiday getaway too.
