Early Booking vs Last Minute
We get it, last minute discounts are very eye catching. Those big savings, prices in red, great value. They make you feel much wiser than those who paid full price almost a year before. But if you look a bit closer you might come to one conclusion: Late bookers don’t get to be choosers.
At Prestige Villas, we deal all the time with early booking enquiries and last minute enquiries and we can say from experience that those booking early get the ideal villa for their party and the best peace of mind.
Reason 1: What’s so great about booking early is that you get to pick from the crop. If your group are looking for something a little special, for example, a group of 10 or more, 2 weeks during peak season or something walking distance to town, then you’re more likely to find it when you put your mind to it early. Flights are still plentiful and often have good prices before the rest of folks catch on to booking.
Reason 2: The deposit for the majority of our properties is 25%, so that gives you enough time to save up bit by bit to pay off the balance two months before you arrive. Having this put away keeps the strain off in January, which is the normal booking period, but often when the purse strings are feeling the most squeezed because of Christmas.
Reason 3: Don’t stress out trying to find the right place for you with just a few weeks notice. Do yourself a favour by getting everything booked and organised in plenty of time so you can organise the holiday that’s right for you and your party.
Reason 4: And last but not least – you get to have something to look forward to! As the days tick by, you’ll be safe in the knowledge that your next holiday is already taken care of.
Reason 5: Get the holiday itinerary sorted. If you book early, you’ll have plenty of time to do some research on the best places in the area to see. What restaurants are the most popular and what beaches are must visits. Reviews of restaurants, attractions, bars and shops are everywhere nowadays so go ahead and look building your ideal trip.
Mallorca has been voted third in the Telegraph’s ‘Top 10: summer holiday islands in Europe’ and is a favourite for many families as it’s ideal for children of all ages and is a well-established tourist destination, getting better and improving every year. At just two hours away from the UK and direct flights for most major airports, it’s a perfect choice. It’s not all about stag and hen parties in Magaluf, there’s so much more to Mallorca than that.
So to conclude, if you book early, you can safely save your desktop photo as the beach in Mallorca.
