Michael Luchen | SummerSummer is far from now, but it doesn’t mean that we can’t start planning.

There are several reasons why we ought to start organizing for trips week or even months ahead of your summer vacation date, but consider the following five financial reasons:

First, consider new tax laws. Contrary to what many people believe, taxes will place more of a burden on working-class and middle-class people. If you are looking to take a vacation, now is the time to get your finances together, because you will be paying taxes later on in the year.

Second, you never know what may happen later on. If you are the victim of an emergency, you may have to pay money to take care of it. With health insurance costs rising, you never know how much you will have to pay out-of-pocket. It is better to set aside the money for your vacation now rather than wait and possibly have to give it up because of a health issue.

Third, you will get the best prices for your summer getaway if you purchase everything ahead of time. Your accommodations, plane tickets, and extra essentials will cost less if you pay for them now. Why wait until the summer hits and pay full price for them – let all of the latecomers do that while you enjoy the rest of your expendable income in cash.
