If you are a frequent traveller, I’ll be betting that you are a fan of flight deals and promos. That’s because they are cheaper, if not more than a half cheaper! This is because flights that are on sale are usually the dead flights which most people do not buy because it’s either a midnight flight or an off-peak season in that particular area. But there are actually, more perks of booking, and planning your trip earlier than most of the back packers out there.
The longer you plan for your trip the more time to save money
This is given, because you know you will be travelling gives you more reason to cut your habitual Starbucks and brew your own coffee instead. The longer you wait for your trip also enables you to review the place and plan your activities. Just avoid being too excited by planning to visit each and every tourist spot in the area, or you’ll end up spending more than saving. Most hotels also offer reasonable discounts by booking early, but keep in mind that reservation fees aren’t refundable.
Making travel decisions earlier than usual saves you your time and money
Planning your trip in advance not only saves you from emotional stress the moment you forgot to pack your valuable essentials, because you lack time preparing for it. You can also pub your budget in a detail given that you have ample of time to plan for that trip. By booking earlier, you will be able to save yourself from worrying about the peak season rates in the airline or hotels.
Planning your trip early makes you manage your money and your schedule better
By scheduling your trip early, you can plan your schedule better and file a leave for work more prepared. You can also align your vacations on a holiday so you get an extra day off. If you are planning your trip early you get to choose from multiple options, be it from a hotel or an airline. In an airline, booking 90 days earlier would mean that you are entitled to enjoy the lucrative inventory of seats available. You can save as much as 50% from booking just 2-7 days earlier. If you plan to travel for not more than three days, then the more that you need to plan earlier, because 2013 holiday surveys shows that more and more people preferred to travel on a long weekend which has an average of 2.8 days.
