Top Tips For Booking Your 2018 Holiday

Planning your holiday is an exciting time, but it can also be a daunting task, and some holidaymakers find searching for the perfect getaway quite stressful.

Now is the perfect time to turn your thoughts to your travel plans for 2018 and find that perfect city break, a hassle-free family holiday or perhaps a far-flung exotic beach holiday. We have put together a short guide with reasons why now is the best time to organise and prepare your perfect 2018 holiday.

Book early for the best value and widest choice

Booking a holiday always seems to bring about the same dilemma, will I save by booking early? Or are their better deals available at the last-minute? The simple answer is, generally, the earlier you book your holiday, the better value you will receive.

Booking early means that you can take advantage of early booking discounts, great added value offers and the widest choice.

You will have the pick of the bunch so to speak – the flight date and times you want, the best seat on the plane, and the hotel room with a view! This is even more relevant if you are looking to travel during peak periods.

As January is usually when airlines and tour operators slash their prices to fill their order books for the year ahead, it's a great time to snap up a bargain and book your holidays early, reducing the stress of finding the right holiday later in the year.

Be flexible with your travel plans

As much as booking early will give you the widest choice, being a little flexible with your travel plans can really pay dividends. Flights, for example, a day before or a day after your intended departure date may save you a good amount of money, even looking to travel earlier or later in the day can make a difference to prices.

A slightly bigger ask, but if you can be flexible with where you go on holiday, as in the hotel, resort or even destination, you could open up options that could save you money, or better still improve the quality of your holiday. Just think about it, changing destinations could mean the difference between a 4-star hotel, and a 5-star all-inclusive resort for example!

Book with Escape The Rock to save time and money

Booking with Escape The Rock is convenient, combining your off-shore and international flights, together with your accommodation and transfers in one simple booking process. You will receive exceptional value for money, and you will also benefit from genuine peace of mind that your holiday is handled by travel experts from an established and trusted local business. We will be there to help – in person at our leisure shops, over the phone or by email.

Another huge benefit is being able to secure your Summer holiday by paying a small deposit and paying the balance as little as 4 weeks before departure.

Don't delay, book today

Our final tip is, don't delay in booking a holiday if you find what you are looking for today. Holiday prices change almost by the minute, so whilst a price may be available today, if not secured with a deposit, it could be more expensive tomorrow, or worse, not available at all!
