Looking for a Last Minute Spring Break Trip?
As I write this, it is early February. Spring Break in Texas is next month. Every day we are getting calls for people eager to book trips during Spring Break. We have been booking Spring Break trips for months now. The people who are calling now are shocked at the high prices and lack of availability.
That is how it goes when you want to travel during a high demand period.
A popular idea we hear alot is “I’ll wait and see if prices go down”. Let me go ahead and predict the future. If you’re wanting to travel during a time when all of the planes and hotels could be filled eight times over, the price isn’t going down. It just isn’t happening. The chances are very, very high that the price you are quoted when you first ask is as good as it’s going to get.
Yes, I know it happened to the friend of a friend year before last. Chances are it isn’t happening for you.
So, if you’re committed to travel during a high demand period of time (Spring Break, Christmas, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, during local festivals) the key to success is early booking.
Next up, Memorial Day weekend. Anyone?
