5: Dates and When to Book:
Many people are locked into when they can go, especially families with children in school. However, the more flexible you can be, the more choices you'll have and subsequently the better value for money you'll get. If possible, try to book 6 to 8 months out, and for the most popular weeks, (New Year's, Presidents Week, Easter), 10 to 12 months is better. We're generally able to find customers suitable boats even within a month, (except for New Year's), but the choices will be greatly reduced so it's a matter of choosing what's left rather than getting exactly what you want. Those holiday weeks are the ones to avoid if possible, as they're much busier on the water, and will cost more, especially in terms of airfare. A good broker can advise on when a good time to go is, and what weeks are busiest.
