Most experts agree that the sooner the better.
Although preparing for a couple of years is not worth it.
Considering all the factors it is better to start preparing 3 months before the travel and that is why:
- Air tickets in that period are still quite cheap. As a rule, the price increases closer to the date of departure. Although there are exceptions. Cheap plane tickets in some areas can be bought 6 months before departure.
- You will have time to explore all the hotels and hostels in the place of stay and choose the right one for the price, location, quality and reviews of tourists.
- If you need a visa — many embassies do not accept documents for registration earlier than 3 months before the trip.
