Booking for 2008

Roughly how far in advance do I need to book my Contiki tour? I was thinking of either going in June 2008, or July 2008, but don't want to book too far in advance (as it is difficult to plan that far ahead with work etc)...

    hey it depends on what tour your doing because some fill up alot quicker than others. also if you book 6 months in advance you save abit of money. otherwise you shuld be fine to leave it 3-4 months before you go,

    yeah, I am planning a trip with my friend for July 2008 (European Whirl) now as we want to take full advantage of the discounts. Also I heard that the summer trips fill up quickly. My dilemma is booking flights – don’t know if I should do it now or wait to see if there are any deals on early in the new year.

    Left in late August this year, booked everything in May of this year. Got a pretty good deal.

    Why can’t I find any dates for 2008 posted online?? Every time I click on a tour it says no dates available… I am looking for a June 2008 departure.
