Book early. We all know that young people love spontaneity, but student tours don’t particularly lend themselves to playing it by ear. Student tours require fine planning, logistics expertise, and exacting execution. Thinking ahead gives you time, selection and savings that keep your budget in check.
In this post, we’re going to share some key reasons to book your student tour early. Because we’re a student tour planning company, we know our clients benefit enormously when they book ahead. Let’s see why the early bird really does get the worm.
Booking early means you have time to reach your fundraising goals in support of your trip. You have more time to set up fundraising activities and events with your group and to raise awareness about the tour. As fundraising bears fruit, you pay over time.
Booking early can also give parents who don’t have money immediately available time to save, so their child is included.
Early booking gives you room to build group anticipation. It also gives you needed time to get buy in from parents who may be nervous about sending their child off on a tour.
Your tour will book almost organically, as word of mouth takes over and your group’s plans go viral. As you release itinerary details in the run up to the tour, you’ll see it fill up and before you know it, booked solid.
More selection and availability.
Book early, especially if you’re planning a student tour during high volume travel periods, booking early means you get the best selection and availability. Junior Tours’ relationships with top accommodations vendors in the most popular student tour destinations mean you get the best, but having more time means you get the best of the best.
Booking early means you’ll have access to the very best of premier hotels and attractions, because you’re first in line.
Booking a student tour early (as more and more people are finding out) means that your group’s budget stays tight.
When you book a tour at the last minute, low availability impacts price (especially during those costly high traffic periods). Early booking not only gets you the widest selection in terms of scheduling and hotel quality and location – you save money, too. And that makes everyone happy.
