Why pre-book versus doing everything yourself?

One of the most important parts of any holiday is the planning stage and deciding on where to go, where to stay and things to see and do. This can cause stress and anxiety because you want to get it right and not make any mistakes. When you arrive at your destination you want to feel relaxed and focus on acclimatising to your new surroundings and soak up the tantalising sights and smells. The last thing you want is to arrive at a beautiful place and have a nagging worry that you may have missed something important. This is even more so, travelling post-Covid.

You wait weeks and sometimes months for that final joyous moment when you can board your flight and slink back into your seat knowing that your holiday has begun. Making sure you get it right is critical. Take the time to consider what you want out of your holiday. Are you dreaming of skiing on a blanket of snow-covered mountains? Or would you prefer to soak up the sun in a tropical paradise? Do you want to stay in a secluded location, or go sightseeing in lively cities? Maybe you want to mix it up.

One of the best ways to get a feel for what you want for your holiday is to take a virtual journey through a destination. If you need information and insights, some visual sparks or maybe you would like to ask some questions, then join one of our fun online presentations with a travel specialist. We host presentations both online and in-person to give you a taste of what's possible.

Should you pre-book or travel on the go?

If you book your holiday in advance, Little America can organise the best route, accommodations and activities for the best price. We will do all the work for you to create your dream holiday. All you need to do is arrive relaxed with peace of mind knowing that we have a local network in Canada and the United States and a 24/7 emergency number.

If you travel on the go, your options may be limited. You could find yourself having to accept the last choice/leftover accommodations due to lack of availability. You may also not be able to join an activity because it is full. Booking last-minute domestic flights are also generally more expensive than pre-booked flights. Travelling post-Covid is much busier than normal and doing things spur of the moment or just winging it is not always possible. If you want to make the most out of your holiday, take advantage of our local knowledge and travel care-free.

How long in advance do you need to book?

We proactively seek micro and small businesses to work with. These businesses are run with passion by people who love their part of the world and want to share it with you. Because we work with small-scale suppliers, they generally tend to book up very quickly. Therefore, we advise booking 9 - 12 months in advance. This ensures that you get the best value for money, and also the best choice of our hand-selected accommodations and activities. Of course, we can still tailor a holiday 3 months before departure but your options may be limited and ticket prices might be higher than expected.
