How Early Should You Book a Trip?

When you book a travel experience depends on if you’re planning it yourself or through a luxury travel agency like Superior.

Using a luxury travel agency can take the work and worry out of booking a trip.

The best part of planning a luxury vacation is closing your eyes and imagining the perfect destination or event you would love to attend. When you leave the planning to Superior Executive Services, you don’t have to do anything but think of where you’d like to go (and enjoy your trip). We take care of all the logistics from start to finish!

Whether you make arrangements yourself or select a premier package from a luxury travel agency like us, there are some planning milestones to consider:

  • 8-12 months: Begin planning and research
  • 6-8 months: Start booking travel and making reservations
  • 6-12+ months: Purchase event passes

Keep reading to learn more about the tips we’ve learned as a luxury travel agency about when to book your trips.

8-12 months: Begin planning and research

We recommend you begin planning your travel around eight months to a year in advance, especially if you’re interested in exclusive or in-demand experiences. Starting early also allows you the freedom and flexibility to consider all your options, including things like premium upgrades, add-on excursions, or flying by private charter.

In addition to gaining exclusive access to events and VIP hospitality, one of the top reasons to partner with a luxury travel agency like Superior is simplicity. Leave the specifics to us and avoid long hours of researching event tickets, securing ground transportation, or finding suitable accommodations.

If you are looking to craft a custom getaway, Superior has a team of experts who can personalize your luxury travel. Just be aware: this could take longer depending on your dream destination and the details.

Feeling the urge to be spontaneous? Give us a call. We’re always happy to connect with our industry contacts to see what’s available for a last-minute escape.

6-8 months: Start booking travel and making reservations

When you’re traveling to a big event, popular hotels, restaurant reservations, and even transportation options will go fast. We suggest booking your accommodations, dining, entertainment, and transportation 6-8 months in advance if you can.

In fact, several 2022 sporting events, music festivals, and more are already available to book through Superior! With the pent-up demand from lack of events in 2020 and reduced attendance in early 2021, these events are sure to sell out fast. If you’re interested in booking a trip to a late 2021 or 2022 event through our luxury travel agency, we suggest you getting in touch as soon as possible!

6-12+ months: Purchase event passes

Each event has its own ticket distribution system, but tickets often go on sale at least six months before the event — and often, much earlier. As an example, 2020 CMA Fest tickets went on sale shortly after 2019 CMA Fest wrapped up, almost ten months ahead of the event (which was ultimately canceled, of course, with 2020 and 2021 tickets rolling over to 2022).

Shortly after the conclusion of the Masters Golf Tournament in April, fans are allowed to enter a ticket lottery for the following year’s tournament, a drawing usually held in the summer.

When you book a luxury travel package with Superior, you can forget about that hassle. Once you decide which event you’d like to attend, we handle purchasing your event passes — plus upgrades like parties, concerts, and VIP seating areas — for you!

Our dedicated team of experts is ready to help you plan your next luxury travel adventure — whenever and wherever you want to go. Call us today at 608.665.9070 or contact us online.
