Jody Victor on Plane Reservations

The weather is starting to clear and I know you are looking forward to vacation destinations far and near.

It’s that time of year when most of us are thinking of going on vacation. I’m sure you have been checking out destinations and how you will get there – by plane, train, or automobile! Of course, that depends on your budget, how far away your destination, and number of days you stay.

It is a good idea to consider flying vs. driving. With the gas prices going up and down – mostly up – you may be able to take advantage of inexpensive flights to your destination if you book a reservation early enough. The farther out you reserve your flight, usually the cheaper the cost will be.

As a rule, 4-6 weeks out is more than sufficient to get the best rate available. So if you are anxious to plan your vacation, it’s never too early to start!
