Time to book your flights
Well you have found the villa of your choice and now you need to secure your flights. If you are booking the villa in advance then this does not necessarily mean that you have to rush to book your flights, although this might be a temptation.
If you are traveling in the peak period such as school holidays, Easter, Christmas etc.. Then you are better to book earlier rather than later but look out for special offers, you can often subscribe to carriers such as Virgin Atlantic and British Airways and this way you will be sent any offers that they have.
If you are traveling out of the main holiday periods then you do have more choice and can afford to wait that little while longer, enabling you to get those bargains which are there to be had, and thus leaving you the extra cash for your attraction tickets or some heavy shopping maybe.
There are many good websites you can look through for flights, If you like your comforts and perks such as back seat TV’s then Virgin and British airways are a good bet, I have flown with both but saying that some of the other airlines such as My travel/ Airtours have started to offer these too.
I have found that if for instance virgin do have any offers for the time you are traveling then book it as soon as you can as these seats are sold very quickly.
Firstly decide which airport you wish to fly from and then go on to find out which airlines use this airport and then you can start searching for your flights. I have found that the lower cost airlines reduce their prices nearer to the time but if you are strict with your dates then you can not afford to leave it too late.
The other way around it is to book a flight short notice getting the best price you can and then look for a villa but obviously you might not then get the villa of your choice.
Personally I would book the villa first to make sure I got the one that I wanted. Then start looking for flights.
As I said before it is always a temptation to get the flights booked up as quickly as possible but with Florida being one of the leading destinations there are numerous carriers that fly there, and you will always get a flight.
