    Me and 6 mates are looking to go on holiday after A2 exams (probably Zante). 11th July, 7 nights.

    My argument is, if we leave it late then we can get a good bargain - seats need to be filled and hotels will be desperate to sell their empty rooms so prices will get slashed.

    Some of my friends are saying prices now will be the same or probably higher the later we leave it.

    At the moment, using a website like On the beach, we're getting a quote for about £425.

    Any thoughts what we should do - past experience on timing when you booked your holiday etc?

    No, prices only go up the closer you get and unless you are really lucky you won't get a last minute deal unless it is one that requires you to leave straight away.

    Always book early.

    they always get more expensive as time goes by, better book early. However, if you search flights always remember to clear your cookies and refresh the browser, i am not kidding, it`s a helpfull trick.
