For those who are willing to spend a little time doing some research there are plenty of cheap package holidays available. There are two ways to get the best deals, book early or book at the very last minute.
Travel firms offer cheap deals to early bookers largely because of cash flow. When they block book hotel rooms or other types of accommodation, they pay a percentage up front. To cover this cost they want to sell some of those rooms as soon as possible, so they offer early bookers a discount to achieve this.
With last minute deals, the opposite is true. Travel firms are selling off those holidays that have not sold. They are doing so cheaply because it is better to get some money rather than none.
The great thing is that you get exactly the same holiday you would have if you had paid the full price. Therefore, it does not matter if you decide to find a bargain by booking early or by booking at the last minute.
If you prefer to know well in advance, where and when you are going on holiday booking early is for you. Traditionally firms launched new holidays in the New Year, but this is changing with firms launching new packages throughout the year.
In the past, the best approach to find early booker deals was to go to a travel agent directly after Christmas. Today, the best way to find early booker deals is to use the internet. Signing up to receive newsletters and special offers from several travel firms via email is the best way to find the best early booker deals.
Booking Last Minute
Again, if you want to find the best last minute deals the internet is your friend. Several websites specialise in last minute deals and visiting them is a good idea. However, you should not restrict your search to them alone. The best travel firms have last minute deals on their own websites that are not available on the specialist last minute or cheap holiday deal websites. Again, signing up for their newsletters and offer e-mails is a good way of making sure that you do not miss the best deals.
