When to book for Spring break

I'm planning our Spring Break for 2014 and am considering the Barcelo Palace. When's the best time to book?

Will the prices get lower or higher?

Hard to say on prices, when or if they are going to fall. Mt best sufggestions is when you see a price you can live withand it falls within your budget then book it and don't check again. Problem with waiting is you might lose the resort, flight. Its a crap shot, I agree, you win some, you lose some.

Just when are you planning on going? The "official" Spring Break dates for 2014 are already released and begin the week of February 16th. and end April 27th - which is the week following the April 20th celebration of Easter Sunday next year.

If you are considering the week before or the week after Easter Sunday, book now as it is most-popular!

Otherwise, consider finalizing your booking before the schools & colleges return for Fall semester, as that is when these groups typically begin to block space for their Spring Break season.

You'll see a spike up in prices at spring-break time slots. Its peak season. Anyone agree?

We go away during spring break.....have already booked for Feb, March and April. We go every year during April school vacation as my bff is a teacher. We book EARLY...like as soon as the hotel/flight package is available. We check prices, prefer adults only for obvious reasons, and try to get nonstop flights. Yes, it is more expensive because the darn airlines jack up prices for that week! We have always gotten a great deal and always stayed at a nice resort for a very reasonable amount of money. The longer you wait, the higher the prices for the most part, particularly during February and April school vacation weeks, along with college break in March.
