Where will you travel to in 2020?
In the travel world, booking early often pays off.
The nights are long, the days short and the weather is far from great. You’ll be digging out coats and hats and tracking down an umbrella for those wet commutes to school and work. Christmas is on the horizon yet again and it’s an awfully long time since the children went back to school and your last holiday.
Next year’s holiday is probably not a pressing consideration right now but this is a good time to book early. Here are seven good reasons why booking your 2020 holiday early and staying ahead of the crowd can work in your favour.
Reason #1 Save £s
We’re already seeing plenty of excellent 2020 money-saving offers that are waiting to be snapped up. Discounts, small deposits, early-bird rewards, upgrades and more.
Whether you are looking to book a beach holiday, family-friendly vacation, an ocean or river cruises or a short break, right now, there are some fantastic deals to be had. It could save you money if you book your 2020 holiday early – give us a call and we can talk you through some of the best.
Reason #2 More Choice
You will get a better pick of accommodation. At this point in the new holiday season, hotels, apartments, chalets and cruises have plenty of availability which they are keen to fill. Furthermore, there’s more choice regarding the grade of rooms and suites on offer. This will reduce as demand rises.
We’re expecting lots of people to be booking their 2020 holidays in January and February which is the busiest booking period of the year, so now is a great time to get ahead.
Reason #3 Flight availability
If you book your 2020 holiday early, you will get a good choice of flight options.
Airlines have lots of seat classes and they all have different pricing. The best value seats sell first. So you will pay more if you leave your travel plans until near to the time you want to head off on holiday.
Here’s what one of our customers recently wrote on Feefo…
“All brilliant and helpful. Always recommend. Took all the worries out of my booking and I had a great holiday!”
Reason #4 Best Prices
You may not realise it but we are often able to beat internet prices. We find that, contrary to popular belief, travel is often no cheaper online.
As an independent travel agent with no ties to one particular travel operator, we are able to seek out the very best deal for you. We have access to all the contracts that online travel companies have and to boot, you’ll get 5-star service and a personal touch. Check out our customer reviews on Feefo.
Reason #5 Peace of Mind
We are ATOL and ABTA registered. This gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your booking is protected.
Reason #6 First-hand Travel Advice
All of the team at Ultimate Destinations love to travel and to travel well. In the last twelve months or so, we’ve visited Crete, Costa Rica, Croatia, Ibiza, La Gomera, Valencia, the Maldives, Uganda and Portugal as well as spending time on several cruise ships.
We offer first-hand advice on the best places to visit and stay and what’s the best time of year to travel to your chosen destination. For example, we don’t recommend travelling to the Caribbean between August and October because this is hurricane season.
We’re also up to speed on new hotels, travel trends and which travel companies provide the best experiences. You won’t get this advice from an online travel operator because they won’t take time to sit down and understand your travel plans. Over a cuppa, we do.
Reason #7 Spread The Cost
Last but not least, if you do book your 2020 holiday early, you’ll have more time to budget for your next holiday and to spread the cost.
And knowing you’re heading off on holiday, even if it is months away gives you a lovely warm glow. It’s something to really look forward to right through our British winter!
For the best laid 2020 travel plans, we recommend that you take two simple steps:
Browse the internet to research your holiday plans and prices. Then come into see us or give us a call and we can take it from there. We are ATOL and ABTA registered (100% consumer protection), we’ll do our best to beat those online prices and we offer fantastic customer service to book. The best of both worlds!
