Don’t Make These Vacation Booking Mistakes

This is the time of year many of you are dreaming of vacation. You may be planning your summer trip now.

You’ve earned your time off and it’s important to you, so you don’t want to waste your money or time.  SmarterTravel.com has some tips on making your vacation count. Here are some mistakes to avoid:

  • Booking too late.  Days of the last-minute deals are behind us, at least for airfares.  Travel agents warn if you wait until the last minute to book a trip, you may end up paying too much.
  • Not comparison shopping.  There are many ways to compare prices online to save money.  You may also want to check with a travel agent to see if you can get a better deal.
  • Not reading reviews. You’re not the first one to stay at that hotel, so check out the opinions of other travelers on sites such as TripAdvisor or Yahoo.
  • And not taking fees into account.  It’s those extra charges… one of the biggest is for checked bags…  that can hike the cost of your airline ticket.

These are just a few of the pitfalls to avoid when making your travel plans. Click here to check out more common travel booking mistakes.
