The magic number is 19!
Last year, global trends showed that Christmas travelers paid almost 75% more than out-of-season travelers to the same destinations. But, there is good news. Comfortingly, statistics show that in North America, booking 19 weeks – or roughly 133 days – out from your travel date garners the best fares. Across the pond in the United Kingdom, this period is dependent on your chosen destination, but a maximum of 18 weeks – just one shy of the North American window – offers the best airfares. However, further data out of North America shows that after 160 days out from travel, the savings percentage – though still at its maximum saving – plateaus. Therefore, it is safe to say that you would benefit best to book from now!
In addition, this notion of booking early also extends to where you stay. The island is a highly popular destination during the Christmas period, and to make sure that you are free to experience the island at your convenience and leisure, it is important to book your accommodation well in advance.
