Timing reservations for best price - spring break?

When is the best time to make a reservation in order to try to get the best price for Spring Break? Is it better to book as early as possible? When would that be? We used Apple Vacations for our last trip and were generally happy. Any other suggestions for companies to purchase airfare and hotel from?

TIA!

booking for the best price.............everyone has a different opinion...........I have gotten great deals waiting untill the month before and booking 4 mo in advance, some people even book 9 mo in advance. just keep checking the sites and book when you find a price you are happy with. If you are not particular what resort then last min there are often great deals. BTW Punta cana is not know to be a spring break hot spot

My travel agent at Liberty Travel said they will match the lowest price you can find for hotels up to the date of departure! I've never had to test this timing, but they did drop the price for me after booking a trip. If this is the company policy, it would take the worry out of timing your reservation.

Thanks sukie63on & Needsavacation!

Does everyone use an agency or has anyone tried to book their own air/hotel? I tried checking for rates at the Iberostar Dominicana for April but can't get a quote yet. Maybe it's too early?

TIA!
