MIAMI, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- It's not too early to make your dreams of a fantastic summer getaway a reality says vacation rentals expert Matthew Smillie, who owns luxury Aruba rentals.
"Booking summer travel early allows you to spread the cost over several months," says Smillie, whose company rents luxury villas in Aruba.
Early planning allows travelers to take advantage of early booking prices and travel on the best travel days. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are typically the best and cheapest days to fly, while Tuesdays around 3 p.m. are the best day to purchase airline tickets. Every Tuesday morning, discount airlines list sales and by the afternoon, the bigger airlines have typically caught up, allowing travelers to reap the rewards.
Planning early also allows travelers the benefit to monitor airfare pricing. They can watch trends and snap up tickets at low prices after shopping around.
Travelers can also spend more time discovering the best deals in accommodations in the area they are traveling. Renting beach villas may be cheaper than hotels, especially after factoring in food costs. Planning travel now affords time to research and investigate home rentals, and compare with the cost of hotels, bed and breakfasts and other accommodation options.
"Renting a home helps travelers feel relaxed because they're in a familiar environment," says Smillie, whose company can help plan Aruba accommodations. "Begin planning your trip now, and you can find a beautiful and comfortable home in a centralized location to the activities you have planned during your vacation."
Planning early also gives travelers time to consult with a travel agent. The internet has afforded shoppers many advantages when planning travel, but travel agents are still the experts. They'll know the ins and outs of travel, such as additional fees, and they'll pay attention to little details like the timing of connecting flights. Travel options can be confusing, so travelers shouldn't be afraid to get an expert's help.
But perhaps the biggest benefit to planning a trip early is the peace of mind it will bring. It's never too early to begin researching that dream vacation.
