How Far in Advance Do People Book Their Summer Travel?

While most travelers are just settling back into their daily routines at school and work after their spring break trips, many are already starting to look forward to their next vacation. Beach trip in July, anyone?

Unsurprisingly, summer is the most popular time of year to travel. Some people plan months in advance for their trips, while others are more spontaneous in their trip planning.

Based on TurnKey Vacation Rentals’ data, here is how far in advance people are booking their trips to 10 of our most popular travel destinations:

For the most popular travel destinations in Texas, people wait until about 6 weeks prior to their trip to book it. However, for trips to the east or the west coast, travelers will book 2-3 months in advance instead.

These insights are good news for both homeowners and guests. There is still ample time for guests to figure out where they’re headed next, and homeowners still have time to get their rental ready for the season.

TurnKey can help with both – guests and homeowners can visit or give us a call at (888) 512-0498 for more information.
