Have you booked your holiday travels?

With the summer temperatures still lingering in the air, it is hard for many of us to imagine booking our November and December holiday travel. Yet, that’s just what eight million Americans have already done, according to a report from Bankrate.

This holiday season, many savvy Americans will enjoy the best pricing on flights and hotels, and the best choice of seats on today’s cramped airliners. Oftentimes airline and hotel prices increase as your travel date approaches. Early planning will allow you to monitor availability, compare prices and budget your travels thoroughly.

So, try to avoid being a last-minute traveler. This will give you some peace of mind and help you enjoy a stress-free holiday.

Use points to save even more money

Another way to save money on holiday travel is to use rewards points/miles. Many consumers, especially those who travel infrequently, may not realize how many points/miles they have racked up through everyday spending on their credit cards. These programs often allow cardholders to redeem their points for discounts with a variety of hotels and airlines. Not to mention a healthy number of hotels and airlines have eliminated their dreaded holiday blackout periods.
