We may only be in Autumn and many of us may not have even given Christmas much thought yet, so why would we be even thinking as far ahead as next Summer? Here at Remarkable Holidays, we believe that now is the ideal time to start making plans for Summer 2019 and here’s why:
The most obvious reason is availability. Summer is undoubtedly the most popular time for holidaymakers to get away in the UK so there will be more competition for dates in this season, especially in the school holidays where parents of school-aged children are restricted to certain weeks. Also the reverse of this is true for people who wish to holiday in the Summer months when the weather is more likely to be favourable but will not be accompanied by school-aged children. These people will more than likely want to avoid paying the school holiday premium; so may be restricted to June, early July and early September. Basically, the sooner you book, the more choice of properties and the larger the selection of dates you will have to pick from! Not to mention getting your dates up early on the work’s holiday calendar!
While some people love nothing more than a snowy day or sitting by a roaring fire, for others it’s all about sun, sea and sand. If you fall into the latter category, getting your Summer holiday booked will give you something to count down to and help you through those Winter blues!
The further in advance you book your holiday, the more time you will have to research the area you are visiting, local attractions, and any events that may be taking place. Obviously there is nothing wrong with exploring once you reach your destination and taking things as they come, but with a little forward planning you can really make the most of your holiday and avoid missing out on something you would love to do or see. You may also find while talking to people about your upcoming holiday, some may have visited the area you are staying in and may suggest some must-see attractions or hidden gems. Also, once you have decided on any activities you would like to do it may be worth looking into whether it is possible to book in advance or online as sometimes this reduces things such as entry fees, which for a family can really mount up.
