Get the Most Out of Booking Your Holiday
« on: May 31, 2010, 11:24:08 AM »

Booking a holiday online has so many advantages over booking in person, its fast, efficient, convenient and in most cases safe. By following a few simple rules you can get a whole lot more out of your holiday when booking online.

In this article I will share with you several factors to take into consideration when making a booking online, hopefully I won't bore you too much and will at least help you get a little more out of booking your holiday online.

Get in early for the best rates!

A lot of people do not realise that the earlier you book your holiday the cheaper you can get it, a lot of websites and travel agents will offer you a cheaper rate for booking well in advance. In most cases you only need to pay a small deposit to secure the holiday and can make some great savings. So if you want to get the best available rates for your holiday make sure you book as early as possible.

Consider your location carefully

I do not mean consider going somewhere else altogether, do not worry, but you should look at the areas surrounding the destination you wish to visit. Staying in the heart of a holiday destination will have the highest accommodation rates and going just a mile or so out of town can save you money. At peak times the popular destination hot spots can quickly become overcrowded and it can be almost impossible to find suitable accommodation, when this happens holiday companies will often offer unbeatable deals a few miles out of town just for the sake of making a sale.

Avoid School Holidays

While a lot of people might think its wrong to take your kids out of school for a family vacation it can be a great money saver. Booking holidays online for school holidays can sometimes triple the term time rates, for a family on a budget or looking to save some pennies a would highly recommend avoiding the school holidays.

When should I make the booking?

Believe it or not booking at certain times of the week can save you money! This is one of those secrets that very few people know and can be a great way to save a few pounds. A lot of airline companies and holiday companies change there rates daily based on demand, studies have shown that Mondays and Tuesdays are the busier days for airlines meaning these are the days when their rates are at their highest so booking those flight towards the end of the week can be a great little saver. Hotels sites tend to get the most traffic on a Sunday, again this means that booking mid week will give you the best chance of securing a great deal.

Lastly reports have shown that traffic to airline, holiday and hotel websites is at its lowest towards the end of the month when people are waiting to be paid, so consider these facts and you could save quite a considerable amount on your next holiday.
