The Benefits of Booking Ahead for Your 2024 Beach Holiday 

Are you already thinking about your next UK beach break for 2024? Well, don’t just think about it – take action and book ahead. There are so many advantages to being organised and booking your holiday early. From having more choice so that you can bag the most beautiful beach house in your dream destination, to getting the best deals and having time to save up for fun-packed days by the coast. Here are just some of the reasons to book your seaside holiday in advance. 

More Choice

The best accommodation, in the most sought-after destinations, is always snapped up first. It’s simple. So, if you want to book the perfect place to stay by the sea, especially during peak holiday season, you need to book as far in advance as possible. If you’re seeking specific dates to suit your schedule, are a large group, or have a particular seaside destination in mind, the further ahead you book, the more likely it is that you’ll wake up in the perfect beach house to suit your needs, just footsteps from the sand. 

Better Deals

The further ahead you book your coastal holiday, the better price you’re likely to secure it for. Once you’ve sealed the deal on your swanky seaside accommodation, you’ll avoid any additional price increases that could be implemented by the owner for the forthcoming season. If you don’t think you’ve got enough to pay for your holiday now, book on a 0% credit card and make a monthly budget to pay it off. 

Make Savings

The further ahead you book your holiday, the more time you’ll have to save for those special days out at the seaside, sea-view dinners and memorable experiences while you’re away. Set up a separate account to stash some cash, and rest assured you can say ‘yes’ to that sea safari the kids are excited about, stop for a slap-up lunch at that famous seafood restaurant beside the beach, or ride the rollercoasters at the theme park on the pier. 

Research the Best Things to Do

Take heed of advice so far and not only will you have money saved to splash on great days out while you’re away, but you’ll also have plenty of time to research the best things to do, places to go and gastronomic hotspots before you go. So you’ll be sure that you don’t miss out on any of the fun. You’ll find you can often make even more savings by pre-booking some of the seaside attractions including aquariums and theme parks. Plus, booking ahead ensures you don’t miss out on getting a table at the best restaurants or getting entry for popular things to do such as seaside theatre showings. 

Get all the Beach Gear

Once you know where you’re going and what you’re planning to do, you’ve still got time to kit yourself with all the right gear for your UK beach holiday. Perhaps you want to try paddleboarding and don’t have a wetsuit, or are planning to walk a section of the coast path but don’t have hiking boots. Or maybe you’re planning a trip to the remote Scottish islands where you’ll need a midge net and a raincoat. Wherever you’re heading, go with the right gear and it doesn’t matter what the British weather throws your way. 

Less Stress

When you choose a staycation and book ahead, going on your holiday is less stressful than travelling abroad. There’ll be no worries about airport delays, weight restrictions at check-in, and no boiling heatwave to deal with when you’re there. The closer to home you travel, the more sustainable your holiday is, and all you have to do is hop in the car at your leisure, and travel a few hours to your holiday destination. No stress, no time pressures, and more time to relax when you get there.

Be Organised

Annual leave, house sitters, friends to feed the cat… Going on holiday creates a mountain of daily admin to be sorted out before departure – and the earlier you get the holiday request in at work and the neighbour lined up to water the garden, the less stressed your departure to the seaside will be. 

Now Relax

There’s no need to worry about waiting for last-minute deals or have the fear of missing out on the perfect holiday. Now you can start the countdown and enjoy all the excitement and anticipation of what you’ve got to look forward to.
