Best time to book for August 2011

Does anyone know when the brochures for summer 2011 come out please?

We were going to visit Kenya this summer, but it didn't work out for us, so we are now going to book early for next year.

We know exactly what we want: upgraded seats, turtle bay beach hotel, and booking a local safari before we go. We just don't know when the flights or brochures come out.

I'd wait until nearer Christmas for 2011. But best to ring the company your going through and confirm or pop into a travel agent as they should know. You have plenty of time.

Hi there,

I booked in April 2009 for our holiday in September 2010. We have saved a lot of money by booking early and have found over the past few years that the best bragains are found on early bookings, plus you can guarantee that you will get exactly what you want (including the premium seats). We booked through First Choice.

Hi there. We normally book right after we come back which was October 2009 last year for 2010. One good tip is to look at the internet prices and if cheaper than the travel agent try to get the agent to match the prices, most of whom do!!!! I think the recent First Choice brochure out goes from May 2010 to April 2011 and the most recent Thomson brochure goes from September 2009 to January 2011.

We booked in April 2009 for August 2010 - just after Easter.

As others have said - the biggest savings are made by booking early,and you can be sure of getting what you want. We booked with First Choice for the Voyager in Nyali - and looking on their website now it is fully booked for the dates we wanted.

I have started searching for next years holiday already - and as soon as we are able to book - we will!

Good luck.
