There is no such thing as “too early” when it comes to holiday travel. It may feel far off, but you’re better off locking down your accommodations now.

We know just how stressful travel planning can be, whether it’s a vacation, business trip, or even just heading home. That’s why we’re giving you a small guide to travel booking, so you can hopefully find it that much easier.

Now you don’t have to worry about finding the time to book your next trip. You just have to figure out where you want to go. 

1) Use when your travel schedule is flexible.

If you’re planning a trip that’s fairly up in the air (sorry) when it comes to dates, CheapAir makes sure you pay the lowest amount possible for your preferred airline ticket. It cross-checks airports, airlines and dates so you don’t have to. The interactive flight finder tool takes the guesswork out of planning, so you can avoid being overwhelmed.

2) Use STA Travel when you’re a broke-a** student (or just broke).

STA Travel helps students and low-budget travelers find the cheapest way to travel, whether it be by plane or train. STA Travel also helps you find the best deals on hotels, tours, and travel activities, it’s truly your one-stop-shop to booking your next great vacation. STA is especially great for students because they help you save money on your trip by finding you some pretty sweet student discounts.

3) Use TripAdvisor when you want a little more insight on you destination.

Maybe you’d rather spend the holidays abroad instead of at home. Whether you prefer worldwide hotel chains or mom-and-pop bed and breakfasts, millions of people use TripAdvisor to post reviews, photos and recommendations on places they’ve visited. You can even conveniently compare prices and book through TripAdvisor.
