So ran a headline in yesterday’s Sunday Times Travel Section written by no less than Chris Haslam, the editor. He describes looking for a deal this year as a barrel scrapping exercise and outlines how most holiday companies, Amro Worldwide included, have honed their stock-management skills from the art of guesstimate to that of laser sharp precision to ensure minimal unsold holidays which are sold off at a discount.
Irritatingly, he continues, the best way to get a deal now is to book early and with some 2011 holiday offers due to expire by 31 August – that’s tomorrow – he’s probably right. But you don’t really have to book that early with Amro Worldwide to secure a good priced deal.
Book 8 - 12 weeks out – that’s now for November - and you should find plenty of choice at a fair price. Look for September and there’s not much left although we do have some space at the all-gay male Beach Boys or Tenesoya in Gran Canaria on 18 September with flights for around £400 each. But it is not going to get any cheaper !!
It’s difficult in the current economic climate to plan far ahead but just a few more weeks planning ahead for your holiday could save you a lot of money.
