That is almost as hard to decide as where do I want to travel? The answer to that question can greatly change where you go, who you go with or even how much you pay.
There are lots of places to vacation, we all know that, but is it less expensive to go during the summer months ? What about holidays, is it always a premium price ? Will booking last minute get you a better deal? The answer to most of these is not just a yes or no question, it’s a little more complicated than that.
Where to begin…
The best place to begin is with your schedule and it’s flexibility, especially if you have school age children involved. We are lucky, our kids not only get the normal school breaks (think Christmas, Summer, Spring Break and so on), but they also get two extra breaks in February and October, which, in my opinion is a great time to travel. So, start with your schedule and decide if you want to spend the holidays traveling. Are you willing to walk around Walt Disney World in August? Now, if you want to travel with friends or family, it makes it just a little more challenging to align everyone’s calendars, but trips with loved ones are some of my favorites.
Isn’t this a little backwards..
Most people think you choose your vacation and make it fit into your calendar, and that is true for some destinations. Cruises run year round and all-inclusives are open 365 days a year, but, your travel time, will help determine which cruise line or which country to visit to be pampered and spoiled. So it’s not as backwards as it may seem.
Now we book…
Finally, we got Grandma and Grandpa on board, Uncle Bob and Aunt Barbara are ready to go, all the calendars align, now we book. Let the fun begin. Call your knowledgable travel advisor at My Enchanted Adventures and talk about what destinations would be perfect for the time of you year you have settled on. It is our job to help you find the perfect getaway and make sure you have the time of your life. An Alaskan cruise in November, maybe not be the best idea, but an all-inclusive in Punta Cana after Thanksgiving could be perfect.
