HOLIDAY HOTLINE by Spalding Travel: Why January is the best time to book your holiday
As the winter weather closes in and the festive season comes to an end, now is the time to visualise yourself unwinding on a sandy cove, discovering exotic cultures or exploring spectacular landmarks. There are several reasons for why January is the perfect time to book your next getaway. Here are just a few.
With high demands for booking a family break in the school holidays, booking early is the best way to grab your getaway before prices rise. You'll also get the best chance of enjoying free child places and low deposits, with the best pick of the hotels and destinations on offer.
Booking early means more choice. Get in line first and have your trip tailored to your needs, getting first dibs on your destination, room type, flight times and departure airports. If you’re planning a family break then it may be trickier to get exactly what everyone wants from a holiday if you don’t leave time to tick off everyone’s requirements. The more time you have to find the perfect accommodation and plan your itinerary, the more likely you are to please the whole family. What’s more, tickets for excursion trips are limited so the sooner you nab your spot, the better.
