For those looking to travel long hall is it best to book six to eight months ahead of the travel date.
Expert from Kayak Neil Cartwright, told the Mail Online: “We always want to help travellers find the best deals and it’s striking just how much prices can change simply depending on when they decide to book.
“We have found that as a general rule, British travellers are booking too early when it comes to European holidays and too late for international ones.”
