“Hang on” I hear you say. I know, I know, you have only just Christmas out of the way. But take a hint from the big shops that are already filling the shelves with Easter chocolate – you need to plan ahead. What do you mean you can’t think about that when it’s sub-zero temperatures outside and there’s a sofa sale on! It’s exactly the right time and let’s face it you’re bound to get 40 years free credit on the sofa whenever you buy it.
The real bargains are to be had by booking your summer holiday early.
And what’s more likely to get you through the bleak month of February than the thought of relaxing in the sunshine with family members you DO want to spend your quality time with rather than the ones you had to entertain over the Christmas Break.
So where to go? Well, the world is your oyster, the States are much better value now in comparison to some European countries trying to replenish their economic coffers, take the kids to Quidditch at the new Harry Potter World at Universal in Florida, the AAAWESOME National Parks and “as seen on teenage telly” Californian beaches.
Or why not embrace the natural wonders of Australia! Our summer time is perfect for visiting OZ if you can stretch your usual 2 weeks in to a 3 week vacation, it’s the best time to visit the Great Barrier Reef and my all-time favourite, the stunning Kakadu National Park, although be warned, the Australian dollar is stronger than ever these days so be prepared to dig deep in to those pockets.
There’s plenty of “Early Booking Discounts” available on this summer’s holidays which will run until the end of February. And for the really organised 2012/2013 Club Med ski season is about to go on sale, you need to book this early for their most popular villages for the 2013 Feb half term. Don’t forget that booking through Travelwise (a Club Med VIP agent) will give you an extra 5% discount on any Club Med holiday, ski or sunshine.
