  • Why you should be planning Summer 2015 NOW

    The sun has only just set on 2014, but now is a great time to think about summer 2015. Here are some great reasons why January is the perfect month to find your next great summer holiday.

    Pick the right destination for you

    With so many different destinations available in 2015, finding the one that works for you and your family can seem overwhelming, especially if you book flights and accommodation at the last minute.

    However, if you start planning your summer holiday now, you can take the time to compare what each destination has to offer, including what the climate will be like during the weeks that you want to travel, when the best time to travel to your chosen region is, and if travelling during the peak times is best for you.

    The time that you put into your holiday now means that you will make an informed choice on your holiday without any last minute stress, which means you can sit back, relax and enjoy yourself when it really matters.

    Find a great deal

    One of the most common misconceptions about booking a summer holiday is that you have to book as late as possible in order to find the best deal. Although it’s possible to save money by booking this way, it can lead to extra stress and hidden expenses.

    Booking your summer holiday ahead of time can actually help you save a lot of money on various expenses, such as flights, accommodation, currency and even, entertainment. You’ll also have your pick of some of the most popular resorts in summer hotspots like Spain, Egypt, Greece or Turkey.

    Budget efficiently

    When you’ve booked your holiday several months in advance, you have more time to budget for other expenses, such as spending money and the all-important holiday wardrobe. Having more time to save money and plan your holiday means you will have an excellent idea of how much money you need to take with you for day-to-day costs, so you might be able to afford to treat yourself whilst you’re away!

    Additionally, booking early means you can spread the cost of the holiday, as you will have the option to initially pay a deposit before paying for the rest of the holiday later in the year. This option gives you more time to save and prepare to pay the remaining cost of the trip.

    Be prepared

    We all know that early planning leads to a more organised holiday, and one of the many extra benefits of booking early is that you will be much better prepared for your holiday. Having the added time to plan your trip means that you will know exactly what to expect when it comes to things like the weather, the local transportation and how much you can expect to pay for things like food and drink.

    While the New Year may have just begun, it’s a great time to think about what you want to do on your summer 2015 holiday. So, don’t put it off, start looking for great summer holiday deals and be the proverbial early bird that gets the worm.
