Many tour operators are now advertising holidays for summer 2018. This is because many families like and often need to book in advance to allow them time to sort out travel arrangements, time off work and also often to spread the cost of the holiday.
When searching for a holiday for the following year, you need to double check that you select all the correct dates. It is very easy to accidently select that month for this year and find that you are comparing prices of holiday for the coming months rather than the following year.
Booking in advance can have a great number of advantages but can also come with higher risks. A lot can change in 12 months and often things happen that you could not have foreseen or that you have no control over. When booking a holiday always ensure that you have adequate insurance cover. The insurance should not only cover every member of the family for medical expenses but also for cancellations of the holiday. You need to check what is covered in detail as some holiday companies will only refund the cost for the hotel, not the flights as you may have expected.
