Yes, I OFTEN book holidays in advance - say about 3 months - I do not book a year or even generally 6 months in advance however.
I love the planning, booking, waiting part of a holiday as I find this exciting.

However I think booking now for next year is a bit too far ahead, and once again, especially as I get older!!

Though I have not been on a holiday for a long time as seem to have lost interest and can't be bothered any more. I have seen many places and there are only about 3 I would still like to go to.

We are more a spur of the moment type of family.

And equally last minute deals can be simply brilliant ! We booked a cruise around the pacific islands about 10 days before departure and it was almost 1/4 of the full price (they just try and fill all the rooms).
Good for you, BritishStorm. I wish we could do that. With my husband's work and a wee baby, we won't be able to do anything like that for a while - LOL.

what is that?
I try to get deals do I have to plan and save well in advance.
Absolutely. I have found that if you don't, it books up too quickly, and you get left with very little choice. I am someone who plans well in advance for everything. We are doing a cruise in a matter of weeks and they sell out quickly. If you want to go at a certain time of year, or want a certain cabin, you must book well in advance, as it sells out quickly. If you are happy to take whats left, and go off peak, when no one else wants to go, then leave it to the last minute.
Yes, this is something I was always made aware of the benefits of!! My son has recently had a trip from Melbourne to Nth Qld to see me, and having booked a few months ahead he managed to get great deals on EVERY aspect of his holiday!! I always have found this to be the case when I have gone on holidays too!
The big hols get booked in advance but the long weekend or week to ten day hop over the ditch are usually spur of the moment due to the window of time available. Plane fares are so wierd. Sometimes booking ahead is way dearer :((

Sometimes I book a month or two in advance and other times I wait and book last minute. It really depends on the holiday I'm taking.
I agree with Finy that the planning of the holiday can be an exciting part.
I also think that sometimes the last minute surprise is just as exciting.
So you have no preference then? lol
overseas trips are planned in advance. Others not so much lol
Book them about 4 to 6 weeks in advance. Certainly not sooner.
I prefer to book in advance the advantage being you get what you want. My river cruise was booked well over 14 months in advance.
Wow that is a long wait !
We tend to book hotels around 2 or 3 months in advance.

Im with jonaj, what are holidays??? I wish, too hard with elderly mother and irregular casual job!
We book cruises 3/4 months in advance, but our flights to Melbourne is usually 1 day before we leave, due to my husband being ex airline staff. He can even change flights out at the airport if we arrive too early for a flight, or a flight later, if we can't get onto our booked flight.
