If you're thinking about taking a vacation at some point in the future you might want to start pinpointing the exact details of your travel plans. The sooner you know where you want to stay at in Peru or elsewhere even, and when, the better off you'll be.

We don't want you to think that we're rushing you or anything. We know how hard it can be to get everything into place such as taking time off work from your job or getting somebody to pick your mail up while you're away. It's just that the earlier you know where and when you want to travel the sooner you'll be able to book your plane tickets.

The reason why you want to book your plane tickets as soon as you possibly can is so that you can scoop up those early bird discount promotions. Airlines are always offering promotions for various travel destinations and travel routes but those seat sales are usually sold pretty quickly so if you miss out on a deal it might be some time until another one comes along. However, if you know the dates of when you want to leave and where you want to travel to you can book your plane tickets and get the biggest obstacle out of the way.

You don't want to wait until the day before you have to leave for a hockey tournament in North Vancouver for example, to try and scramble to get a plane ticket because even though you might be able to find a last minute ticket it will probably cost you an arm and leg. Instead, try to do what Dr. Scott Ly from Davis Dental Care does and ask your secretary to book flights three weeks before your travel date. By not waiting until the last minute and booking far in advance, even months before traveling, you can save yourself a lot of money that you can either keep in your savings account or spend it on upgrading your hotel booking.

One way of finding out when the early bird deals are being offered is by signing up for e-mail alerts and newsletters for all the major airlines and travel websites. They'll send you an e-mail alerting you to what deals are going on and when they expire.
