5 Reasons to Book Your Spring Break Vacation Now
We’re sure the last thing you’re probably thinking about right now is Spring Break. After all, with the holidays being right around the corner, you already have enough on your plate, right?
But on the flip-side, there are several benefits in making those plans earlier, rather than later! Check out some of our top reasons why booking now is a great idea:
1. You’ll Save Money
This is our number one reason to book spring break early. Since prices typically jack up the closer you get to a holiday or busy time of year, it’s smart to jump on booking now to avoid being overpriced. Would you really want to pay an extra $1,000 for a hotel suite because you decided to wait until the last minute? We didn’t think so. Be sure to jump on those early-bird specials as soon as you see them.
2. Guaranteed Reservations
Spring break is one of the busiest travel times of the year. Flights and hotels will sell out very quickly, making it nearly impossible to make last-minute reservations. It’s especially important to coordinate your plans several months in advance if you’re traveling with large groups –you wouldn’t want to risk staying at completely different hotel than the rest of your group, would you? Booking early will put your mind at ease knowing you have a definite place to stay.
3. Save on Flights
Typically, the best time to purchase your flights is 54 days before departure –but for spring break, you’ll want to start sooner. Since locations vary, it’s best to start checking for available flights up to six months before your trip. You won’t be sorry when you wind up spending half as much on your flights than those who book last-minute.
4. Hotel Upgrades
Many hotels offer promotions or “perks” if you book your stay with them early. This entices the traveler to firm up their plans with their hotel earlier, rather than later. Heard about how awesome that facial or catamaran ride is? Then chances are, there’s a deal for that. Make sure to confirm these details ahead, or you’ll likely be paying full-price.
5. Time to Prepare
Lastly, when you book your spring break vacation early, you’ll rest easy knowing that not only are your flights and reservations made, but you’ll find more time prepare and save for your trip (many payment plans are available). There’s nothing like packing and scrounging up your pennies at the last-minute, so this is definitely something to consider.
Now that you’re already thinking about spring break, it’s time to pick out the perfect place to go! Check out our entire list of recommendations, here. For more information on early-booking, contact us today at firstname.lastname@example.org
