How Soon to Start Planning for Colorado Family Vacation


When you decide you are ready to take a family trip, the anticipation can be immense—which can push you to be eager to start planning everything right away! Planning a Colorado family vacation is a blast, and once you arrive, you will be so thankful that all your hard work has paid off.


With all this planning, booking and reserving, it can be difficult to know how far in advance is too far. However, if you are planning on going on a trip surrounding school breaks or other common travel times, beating the crowds is key to getting the best prices possible. Read on to learn more about how to snag the best deals, availability and time on your next Colorado family vacation!


How to Decide When to Start Planning a Family Trip to Colorado


Consider the flexibility of your dates. If you have flexible travel dates, there are plenty of ways to save when you book airfare, hotels and more, providing you a bit of wiggle room with how far in advance to book. However, if you are locked into a spring break or summer season, it is better to err on the side of earlier bookings so you can be certain you will have the experience you are hoping for.


Layout all your activities. If you are trying to hit a certain activity while you travel to a place (such as a horseback riding trip of a lifetime through the Rockies 😉), that is something you should weigh into your booking schedule as well. If you have any must-see attractions, it might be worth getting in touch with them to see how far in advance they recommend booking so you can ensure you do not miss out on the opportunity.


Consider the schedule of your hotels, airfare, etc. While you can book many hotels over a year in advance, a lot of airlines will only post their schedule six to nine months out—and if you must fly, it is not recommended to book one without the other. Therefore, it is best to make sure you can book your airfare and your hotel at the same time, for the same dates before you commit to one or the other, just in case!
