BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — With this recent snap of warmer weather, many folks are already getting “vacation fever”. And travel experts say now is actually the best time to book your spring or summer getaway!
From European vacations, to the classic beach getaways, you can typically get a better rate by booking months in advance. Plus, booking early gives you more options for availability.
Travel agents say cruises are still a great option as well, even though they have received a lot of negative press in the past year. Bottom line, experts say: you should weigh all your options, including how you actually book your getaway!
Another important piece of advice from travel experts: apply for your passport now!
Oftentimes, people try to book a vacation outside the US, and aren’t able to do so, because they didn’t give themselves enough time to get a passport.
