3. How far in advance should I book my vacation? LBAC Travel recommends that trips be booked as far in advance as your schedule will allow. Confirming your reservations as soon as possible is crucial in order to optimize availability of the most ideal flight times, resort accommodations, and most cost effective pricing.
4. Why should I purchase trip insurance? While trip insurance is optional, we at LBAC Travel strongly recommend that our clients purchase travel insurance to cover all non refundable aspects of their trip. In addition to covering non-refundable fees, travel insurance is instrumental in providing coverage for unexpected interruption during your trip as well from coverage of costs to get home for an unexpected emergency or flight changes that result in a delay. Trip insurance can also cover lost luggage and theft depending on the policy coverage purchased.
