published December 16 2015

Holidays can be quite expensive but with a little preparation, they don't have to be. Read on to find out why you should plan your holidays ahead.

1. You can save up to 30%
When you  plan your holidays ahead, you can take advantage of offers, holiday packages, promotions and discounts on airfare even for high season travel. It's absolutely possible to get amazing early-bird booking offers from top-hotels, in a great location, with free upgrades.

2. You won’t have to settle for second best
Remember how frustrating it was when your reservation was put on the waiting list? By booking early, no need to compromise on flight departure time, room availability or things to do. You always get the best choice, all within your budget.

3. You can take advantage of long weekends and holidays
If you are working in Asia Pacific under local contract terms, you want to save the scarce annual leave to visit family & friends back home. Plan your weekend getaways and holiday packages around the public holidays so tha you won't have to make use of those leaves.

4. Prices tend to go up, not down.
Long-haul holiday packages in particular are likely to be cheaper the earlier you book them. Don’t wait, start looking for deals, check out a range of offers and prices, and book as soon as you can. 6 weeks in advance of your trip is a good time to act. If you're looking for summer breaks, the January sales often offer exceptional deals.

5. Your Holiday starts at planning
Holiday planning should be joyful because when you start planning, your mind is already on holiday. However, most people procrastinate because their mind is pre-occupied with logistics and arrangements. There are websites that provide great suggestions on things to do and even allow you to customise your personal holiday package. Knowing your holiday can be booked with just a few clicks away, there is no reason to delay. There’s nothing like the thrill of a booked holiday. So start planning today!
