Many globetrotters may still have beach getaways and summer family travel trips on their minds, but they should start looking ahead to opportunities for gallivanting around the world in the fall. In fact, the final weeks of summer are a prime time to start booking Thanksgiving travel plans.
Those who want to travel on the most popular days around Thanksgiving - specifically, the Wednesday before the holiday and the Sunday after - should begin the planning process as soon as possible. These days typically get booked quickly and rates may rise in the coming weeks, so individuals who reserve their space sooner rather than later are in a position to save money and get the flight times or hotel rooms they want.
Thanksgiving may be a time for anything from family reunion travel to romantic Caribbean getaways, and by planning the details of a trip early, travelers can take advantage of lower rates. However, jet-setters should be sure to invest in travel insurance. Because they are booking so early, there may be instances where an emergency forces them to change their plans, and having the right policy for support can limit the aggravation and costs that stem from such an event.
