Greetings my fellow travel enthusiasts! WHEN to book your next great adventure is an age-old question and frankly, the answer is somewhat problematic and subject to a myriad of conditions and circumstances. However, it is safe to say that in the vacation world, the more you book in advance the more likely you are to get a great deal. International air travel? I say 12 weeks or more. Seven-day cruise? Six months is about right. Domestic air travel? Eight weeks should do the trick. It's up to you to know whether or not you are getting an ok deal, a good deal, a great deal, an unbeatable deal, or a scam. This is where your research comes into play. Happy deal hunting and have a marvelous week!
