Why Should I Book Early?
For summer travel, the best deals are generally found in advance, whether it's a hotel reservation or a car rental. This is because almost everyone travels somewhere in summer. In fact, in 2013, AAA estimated that a full two-thirds of the American population planned to take a trip between Memorial Day and Labor Day. With so many travelers battling for the same rooms, cars, and airplane seats, prices can be stratospheric. So the earlier you can book, the better, since you can lock in the lowest rates before they get scooped up.
