Plan family holiday well in advance, says AITO

Families should plan their holiday up to a year in advancePlanning a family holiday well in advance can help secure the best deals, the Association of Independent Tour Operators (AITO) has advised.

Ian Bradley, a spokesperson for the AITO, said: "One thing is to plan well in advance if you can, don”t leave it as late as possible … If you are thinking of going on holiday next year start thinking about it now."

He said that families are tied to school holidays, and so it is a "real difficult period" to travel because everybody wants to go at the same time, which is what makes it so expensive.

"The airlines put up their seats, the hotels put up their rates and a lot of that is passed onto tour operators and they have no choice but to increase their prices as well to actually meet the prices that are being passed on to them," he said.

"It”s really a case of look ahead as far as you can as a family and decide what you want to do and get that booking in as early as possible."

In the 2008 ebookers Travel Opinion Report, 51 per cent of respondents said they were booking their holiday early as a result of the credit crunch.
