How long to wait to book?

Recommended Posts

We are sending out our save the date cards this weekend. We are in contact with a travel agent. Still waiting to confirm with Riu Santa Fe. How long should we wait to book our packages? We are flying out of Toronto to Los Cabos and prices for April are outrageous right now. I know if we wait they will come down or we could catch a no tax sale, plus not all of the tour companies have their winter packages out yet. Plus the resort we picked is always on sell off. I know we can't wait because we are the ones who really have to be there. But just looking for a good guide line.

 

Thanks

Not sure what to tell you. I waited until six month out and didn't get my exact date I wanted. They wouldn't let me hold and confirm until I booked and gave them my confirmation number. Its kind of a gamble. You really have a perdicament sending out STD with out having a confirmed date with them. You still have time if you want to see what happens with the pricing. the only problem with that is fuel prices going up.

I say book ASAP. Prices seem to be going up, up, up right now. Lots of my guests waited and are paying (literally) for it now.

We are planning to wait til six months out. Our resort is one of those that are real difficult about confirming your date with you too soon...so we're trying to wait to book travel. I don't anticipate having too much trouble as far as getting the date. BUT, I don't want to wait too long on airfare especially since I do think its going to get worse this year instead of better. Crap shoot all around. My thinking is that as the actual couple, you don't really want to book less than six months out..."deals" be damned. Paying a little more overall is better than ending up paying WAY more just to get there at the last minute.

I booked as soon as the flights were released just to make sure I got there. If it wasn't my wedding I would have probably waited

I booked us as soon as I could. Our TA is watching prices and if they go down, she will rebook us at the lower price.

I would definitely book before sending out your STD's. I was planning on having our wedding on one date, only to find out after getting a few quotes that Sunquest decided to cancel flights that week. Things are always changing, and prices are definitely increasing (unless you are comfortable waiting until 3 weeks before to book your trip!). With gas prices the way they are, I think booking asap is the right way to go. But it's whatever you feel comfortable with.

 

I would suggest getting lots of quotes from lots of different places, because each quote I've gotten has been different, and if you find a TA you like, they will probably price match to the lower rate.

    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
