Benefits Of Booking Luxury Vacations EarlyBenefits Of Booking Luxury Vacations Early

Book Early --- the travel agent mantra often told by travel agents to travelers who want to book for luxury vacations. But with myths of last minute deals and other types of discounts, travelers are often confused about "how soon is too soon" and what is available to travelers who want to book early. Listed below are a few of the advantages of booking luxury travel early:

1. Catch Better Availability

Once you book a luxury travel vacation early, you have the first shot at getting the best category from flights to hotels. This can in fact make or break the mood of your vacation, especially if it is a special occasion such as a honeymoon. If you have your heart set on a specific hotel, resort or cruise ship, the earlier you book, the better chance you have of getting to stay where you want. And of course, you are also the first travelers to be granted requests such as a non-smoking room, king size bed, and other privileges. Hotels and cruise lines will also go in order of booking date when they are offering free upgrades and extra amenities.

2. Avail Early Booking Discounts and Incentives

Early booking discounts or incentives will certainly save you money; most hotels, resorts, cruise lines and tour companies will offer special deals on luxury vacations that are booked early. They are usually available through your local travel agent from September to the end of October. Make sure to pay special attention to when your reservation must be paid in full, as most specials will require an earlier final payment date.

3. The Perfect Time to Book

The start of the travel business year is September, right after most clients return from high season summer vacations as well as luxury world cruises. This is the best time to see what is available for the upcoming year. However, pricing becomes available ten months before departure date. Once the ten months has begun, start checking prices and come to a decision about seven to six months out.

If you are traveling for a special occasion, or somewhere exotic, make your plans no later than nine months out. Although there are a lot of last minute deals available, they are usually very restrictive. If this is your once a year big trip, you do not want to trust it to the limitations of last minute deals, and especially not if this is for honeymoon and wedding travel. There are just too many things that could go wrong for something as momentous and important as such events.

Booking a luxury travel vacation should be booked early for so many reasons. First, there will be better availability for the vacation you are considering, and you will be first in line to get upgrades and extra amenities. You also can take advantage of early booking discounts. By knowing when to book, you can save yourself the hassle of second-guessing or considering too good to be true last minute deals. Booking early gives travelers the advantage of being secure in their travel plans.
