School is almost out and summer time family vacations are being booked by the hundreds of thousands right now online. I know of many summer vacations that have been ruined because of last minute planning, or waiting to think that you can get a last minute deal.

In popular vacation destinations this is usually not the case. Popular beach or mountain areas only have so many so rooms, condos, and homes available and the best ones get booked up fast for a good reasons. Typically the owner that discounts his property extremely in peak periods does so for a reason. One reason for this can be a bad reputation for not taking care of his unit or some other reason.

There is the flip side of last minute deals as well and that is when owners raise the price of their units because demand is high and supply is low. You could end up paying much more to stay if you wait to book your stay 1 week before your planned trip versus booking it 4 months in advance.

Booking in advance is you best bet. This way you can be confident you will have a good place to stay at a good rate, and your deposit is often time refundable should you need to cancel. has a travel insurance that is available for a fee that will allow you to cancel for any reason and get your booking deposit refunded.
