Great message board with tons of valuable insight and opinion. Glad to have discovered this and will make great use of it when I visit again in March. Question for veteran travelers. Is it better to book early 3-4 months in advance or wait until the last min for price cuts? I realize time of yr affects price but doing a quick search now and Dec is less than half the price of the first week in March for flight and room. The price discrepancy is shocking. Date not flexible since I will be meeting a friends from London and Vancouver. Any advice would be appreciated.
