It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The holidays are upon us, friends and families are gathering, and we’re reflecting on the past year and making plans for the one ahead.
And speaking of plans … are you planning to take a big, bucket list family trip in 2020?
If so, read on for 3 good reasons why right now is the time to be booking this family adventure.
#1 The Best Pricing
For travel during peak dates – such as Spring Break, summer months and the week of Thanksgiving – the lowest rates on flights and accommodations are always available well in advance.
Eight to ten months in advance is the time to be booking flights and accommodations to get the best pricing.
Once the advance purchase rates book up, only the higher priced options remain. When it comes to the most desirable locations and in-demand family travel experiences there is no such thing as a last minute deal.
#2 The Best Sleeping Configuration
When traveling as a family, having multiple sleeping areas and plenty of space to spread out is important. Many resorts, hotels and even small safari camps and lodges in remote corners of the earth offer family friendly accommodations with multiple sleeping rooms, interconnecting spaces and residential-style set ups.
But – these room categories are often quite limited and book up well in advance.
Book early to avoid getting stuck sleeping in a cramped, awkwardly configured room.
Instead of a family friendly suite – if you wait too long to book you may end up all piling into a hotel room with 2 Queen beds or needing to book multiple, more expensive rooms that are awkwardly configured and less comfortable.
#3 Space is Limited
And finally, but most importantly, if a big bucket list trip is in the cards for your 2020 family travel get that booked now because these experiences have limited space.
These are not mega resorts or big hotels – rather small properties and experiences with limited capacity. That’s what makes them so special!
As such, the most in demand dates book up well in advance.
