When is the best time to book a holiday for your family?

It can often be confusing knowing when the best time is to book a family holiday to get the best deal but also ensure you get what you want. This is even more so if you are planning on going abroad. Many families worry about booking a holiday a year in advance as a lot can change over the course of a year and planning that far ahead can be worrisome.

There are many advantages to booking your holiday early for example you may be able to spread the cost over a 12 month period and saving money by booking far in advance. Sometimes families can only afford to go on holiday if they are able to spread the cost over the year ahead.

It is important to remember that when booking a holiday in advance that you take out a good holiday insurance policy that will cover you should you need to cancel the holiday.  Some insurance this will cover you for cancellations on your behalf others will only cover you for cancellations that are out of your control. You also need to check the amount they will pay out should you cancel the holiday as often there is a limit on this which may be less than the amount you paid.
