How Far in Advance Should I Book Holiday Travel?

How Soon Is Too Soon to Book Holiday Travel?

While still tallying up grand totals for Summer travels, some people are already thinking about Winter plans! This question was shared by SavvySugar reader morganashley in the Savvy Q + A group:

Christmas in July? Not quite, but my mom is already nagging me about holiday destinations. For December! True, we usually visit locations with lodging that books up fast — often well over a year in advance for the prime places — and flights are unguaranteed to drop drastically before then. Still it's so hard to wrap my head around a vacation for five months away. From what days I'd take off work to how long I'd want to stay, am I the only one with a family member who plans so far in advance? Have any of you booked Christmas or even Thanksgiving flights yet?
