If you rather have fun in the sun rather than head home for the holiday season, you’d better finalize your travel plans soon.

National polling results released this month indicate that nearly half of travel agency clients had begun booking holiday travel during July or earlier.

All-inclusive resorts packages are the destination of choice this year, according to a Carlson Wagonlit Travel agency survey.

Having the whole family visit any destination was the second most popular choice, followed by cruises, visits to sunny and warm destinations and traveling to see relatives.
