Never Too Early

It Is Never Too Early


This can be a very frustrating season for me, because you all think it is early and it is already late. When you want to travel during holiday times or a specific week and place we need to plan very early… 9 months to a year.  I write about this almost every year and yet I still get calls for holiday travel in September and October.  I can always do something but the air price is usually prohibitive.
What is doubly frustrating is July and August our desks are very quiet. That is why many travel advisers are out of the office. We would gladly stay if you all called! But you are out of the office too! Come September, we are all ready again. So maybe next year you need to call in the spring for the winter! Many do.

I have already booked several cabins for 2017. Even for July. They knew what they wanted and booked early. Actually one for May could not get the cabin they wanted and that was booking in July! It is never too early. I cannot reiterate this enough.

What I hear most is ‘I do not know what I will be doing in 12 months.’ Well my only comment is many do and as it is said ‘the early bird gets the worm!’ It is easy to just decide, put it in the book, take out insurance for the unknown, and enjoy the next many months anticipating a wonderful experience. A friend of mine decided to take a cruise in Tahiti for early December and she is having more fun planning and deciding what to wear! You can too!
