When to Start Making Summer Travel Bookings

It is always advised to book early to find the best selection of flights, hotels, and travel rates for summer travel.

The beginning of the year is a great time to start mapping out travel plans and new adventures; visits to family and friends and annual vacations will all fit in the calendar and your budget. It is only fitting then that National Plan for Vacation Day is actually celebrated on the last Tuesday in January as a reminder to get on top of your summer travel booking plans. It is always advised to book early to find the best selection of flights, hotels, and travel rates. If you are not fully prepared to book an entire trip just yet, we are here to help map out when the best time to book a vacation is in 2024. Read on to learn more!

When to Book for Summer Vacations

While you might have a bit more runway to plan summer vacation trips in August, it is a good rule of thumb to book your summer vacations in mid-spring at the latest. Early April is the best time to plan out your summer vacation trip. After that, search volume steadily climbs, the best beachfront getaways fill up, and prices rise as well.

When to Book for Memorial Day Weekend

Searches for this three-day weekend, which is recognized as the unofficial kick-off to the summer, get underway for a few people in mid-February. However, booking your trips in early April will put you ahead of the pack.

When to Book for 4th of July Weekend

Searches for Independence Day getaways will hold steady for the first part of this year, but a sizable jump usually occurs in late May. So, it is a good idea to book before most travelers are in the summer mindset in mid-May.

When to Book for Labor Day Weekend

This year, travelers trended ahead of schedule when it came time to plan out their perfect summer sendoff. Make sure to lock down your Labor Day vacation home before you pull out the barbecue for the 4th of July.
