If you travel over the holidays, when do you start that planning? Millions book their trips before Labor Day — sometimes long before.
“I booked the hotel back in the first week of January, because if you want to stay in a certain place the rooms go really fast,” says Kimberly Moster, who’s going to Jamaica for the holidays. In March, she got her flights.
A Bankrate survey finds 1 in 5 people flying to holiday destinations were planning to book their flights before September. And about 1 in 4 (24 percent) who will stay in hotels expected to make those arrangements by now.
