When to Save

When to Book

Book a month before departure to get the best airfare and car rental prices. The lowest rates are usually found on the Internet, from U.S.-based sites, rather than locally. It's also a good idea to book with major car rental companies. For hotels, book as far in advance as possible to ensure availability, especially for properties around the Bay Islands and North Coast.
