Christmas is near and it is probably the only season when the whole family comes together. For 11 months we try to save for this gift-giving season. But what about a gift to your self? How about a ski holiday in the Alps? Or maybe a winter beach break? Or a one-week cruise? You can do both without breaking the bank. You can attend the annual family Christmas dinner and hand a present to each of them all; then reward yourself a quick holiday before the New Year rings in.
According to travel experts, there are two ways to get cheap package holidays. It’s either you book very late or book very early.
If you want to get a cheaper rate by booking early, then you should have booked for a holiday package as early as NINE MONTHS ago. Most early booking rates can go as low as 50% at that time. Some even offer a buy-one-get-one-free package.
Now, if you’ve been planning for a Christmas holiday trip just now, then I suggest you try to book now or next week. If you haven’t noticed, there are tons of holidays package bargains offered these days and they would probably more come next week. This is because tour operators are trying to flog the last few empty rooms and flight seats that they have to offer.
So go ahead, and call your travel agent. You don’t even have to bother giving him fruit cake for Christmas. Simply book a package holiday and you are both doing yourselves a big favor.
