Planning next year and beyond...
An early start on planning can yield great rewards. For the time, energy and money spent on vacation we like to plan carefully--reading guide books, watching travel videos, discussing the trip with friends and planning which sites to include on the itinerary. Use the extra time to brush up on language skills or learn which restaurant you want to visit.
Leverage Vacation Dollars
Early planning can also open the possibility of creating vacation packages with group rates.
