The Best Time to Book Spring Break

Even though there may be glistening white snow covering the ground in some states, it isn’t too early to plan your big spring break getaway. In fact, it’s actually the ideal time! Planning your spring break about 4-6+ months in advance does a few key things to help your group and your budget.

  • Better hotel/resort deals

  • Cheaper flight rates

  • More time to plan excursions and activities

Better Hotel/Resort Deals:

This one is simple; the earlier you book any hotel or resort spot, the cheaper it will likely be. Ideally, you should try to plan your spring break accommodations 5+ months in advance. Most people take vacations from weekend to weekend, but it pays to go against the grain. If you are able to depart on Tuesday or Wednesday, you can save some serious $$.

Cheaper Flight Rates:

The same idea applies to round-trip flights, the earlier, the cheaper. Flights open for booking about a year in advance, and the airfare will change often between then and takeoff. So, as a general rule of thumb, you'll want to book plane tickets well in advance of your trip, as prices spike sharply in the days preceding the flight, taking advantage of any last-minute travelers who have no choice but to pay up.

More Time to Plan Excursions and Activities:

If you stay on top of your game and plan your trip 4-6 months in advance, you will have PLENTY of time to figure out your itinerary as far as where you want to go, where you can afford to go, and where you want to avoid going at all costs!

These four things, combined with working with a Pixie Planner can seriously brighten up and budget down any spring break plans you may be planning in 2022 or beyond!
