we normally book about 3 months ahead...no kiddos yet so all we do is check to see what dates we want and then look for the best rate

When going with family/friends, usually 3 months. Once I went on like 2 week notice, you can find good deals that way!

I was just wondering as I have had a tough time getting rates for airline and hotel. At this point it is impossible to book with Funjet , Apple or even Continental vactions for January.

On our last trip, less than two months from booking to leaving, I saved about $400. by using Funjet.

I do have rates from El Cozumeleno and Continental. Is it cheaper to wait till I can package them together or should I just go ahead and book the two separate threw the hotel and airlines? Lynn
