Whilst today’s choice of luxury holiday destination and individual property may be a little overwhelming, the key to any travel planning is to think ahead. This is particularly relevant if you are travelling with a family – prescriptive school holiday dates can prove problematic and the last thing you want, is the disappointment of less-suitable late rooms and a constantly changing availability picture. By booking early, you often not only secure your first choice of luxury hotel or villa (plus room type), without stress, but you often gain from early booking offers – highly significant if they are halfboard upgrades or complimentary room upgrades!
Without hesitation, we urge early booking when it comes to ski holidays (booking ski schools and passes can be a lengthy process and these are highly in demand). February Half Term also proves popular for sunshine escapes – the Caribbean, for example, is top of people’s list to escape the dreary late-winter weather in the UK. The longer Easter school holidays are as enticing as the Christmas break, so be prepared to arrange your luxury private villa in advance! Flight seats are also harder to secure during key holiday dates and the last thing you want is to have to sit separately from your family on board the plane!
Whilst summer may seem a fair way off, European Cruises went on sale a long time ago while the most desirable villas tend to be booked by repeat guests. With many early booking offers available, it makes sense to secure your flights and bag the best accommodation and room types as early as possible – it also removes a huge amount of stress! Our advice is to book early and, therefore, feel smug and secure! It also means that you have something wonderful to look forward to, something inspirational to smile about on a cold February morning!
