    Want to go away in oct/nov.. book now or last minute?

    I havent been on holiday for a while so im a bit out of touch with the holiday market trends... At one point it was best to book last minute.. then it was book in advance..

    What about now? Shall I look to book asap or best to wait? Do holidays get cheap out of season?


    So much choice of where to go.. would like to go to some quiet Island somewhere if anyone can reccommend one!

    Good question

    I'm after the same advice for going away in November or December

    I'm pulling my hair out with all the options

    The one thing I'm noticing atm with lots of online "offers" is that there doesn't seem to be much money off the actual full brochure price, despite what the operators claim

    This is edging me towards waiting

    I've been looking at holidays for about 2 months - we're going in 3 weeks and booking this weekend. Prices have definitely gone down a lot since I first started looking. My recommendation would be to leave it until a week or two before you go.

    Ive had the opposite experience
    i was looking at a week in egypt/morocco september time
    prices have gone up by about 50-75 in the last week or two
    i guess it depends on where you want to go

    always seem to go up the later u leave it....thats what ive seen?

    errm and regarding where, depends on who is going, ur budget and what u like to do. we are a family with young kids and we like villas. so we do the canaries as its good weather for going in the pool and just chilling. lus its not too exensive. am thinking dubai maybe and in 2 yrs to florida! yay

    the cheapest package deal ive seen with flights was for about £350 for that price but would rather go egypt then.
