Right now you’re packing your bags for this year’s trip. Maybe, just mayyyybe you’re thinking about winter skiing or New Year’s celebrations. But what about an early booking of your sailing trip in 2019? Hear us out on these 5 reasons to think ahead on your summer vacation.
Early booking discounts
If you start planning your yacht trip with few months in advance, you can get discounts up to 50%. Early booking is no joke – a casual search of boat availability a straight year in advance shows 36% of boats are already booked for the high season! Big discounts aside, another big plus for your budget are the low deposit fees that can drop to 15%.
Wider selection of ships
Many people leave the selection of yacht to the last minute. However, this way the boat of their dream vacation can end up booked by someone else. You don’t have to compromise. Do you want your yacht to be a new model and to include a bow thruster? What about a teak deck or bathing platform? Reserve it ahead of anybody else and you’ll be sure to get the best offer.
More destinations to choose from
Selection of destination is similar to selection of ship. It’s first come, first serve. Do you have a favourite marina or do you have a clear idea where you want to sail? Whether it’s Croatia or Carribean, early booking will guarantee you the ideal combination of destination and yacht. In case your plans aren’t set in stone, you can find an inspiration at our blog (e.g. our exquisit take on wonders of Central Dalmacia).
Getting the crew together
With big crew it gets harder and harder to find a date suitable for everyone. Occupational responsibilities, family occasions and other things can easily impede this process. This goes double if you are planning a holiday with friends. That’s why it’s important to plan in advance – just to make sure every crew member is okay with selected date.
Cheaper plane tickets
Are you sailing in far away seas? Or did you decide to forgo long car drive for comfort of airplane? Plane tickets are a lot like yacht bookings – sooner you book, cheaper the price. Booking the airplane for your crew just a few months in advance can be a game changer for your budget and allow you to splurge more on some of that sweet, sweet sailor life. And isn’t that what this vacation is all about anyways?
