If you are looking to book your holiday for 2017, then you may be able to get a deal by doing it now. With holidays you often get a discount by booking far in advance or by booking last minute. Although you may save more by travelling last minute it can be quite stressful and you will need to be very organised.
There are many advantages for booking a holiday early, and often you will be able to pay by instalments, spreading the cost of the trip. It also allows you time to sort out passports, time off work and someone to look after your pets.
By booking in advance you may worry about the risk of the company going out of business during this time. You need to ensure that your holiday is ATOL protected and ideally pay on credit card which often offers you more protection than paying with debit card or bank transfer.
