    Default "2013 Early Escapes" - Who's taking advanatage??

    I am trying to talk my wife into booking for next year. We have NEVER booked this early before, and I need everyone's help convincing her.
    Sooooo, who is booking now? Where & when?

    We haven't even taken our first trip yet (CSA in May). I'm going to book CSS for a week in September or October. We might also book CN for a week in May.

    We just booked last CSA last month for our 10 year anniversary June 2013!! It's over a year away, but something to look forward to!!! CAN't WAIT!!

    We booked Jan 5-12 back on march 5th! Reservations can be changed (or cancelled) up til 45 days before you travel. We will still keep an eye out for Wednesday specials or any other deals that come along. But it's really a no brainer to book using this special as it is really only ties up $400 and I'd be surprised to see a better offer come along! Only drawback is 276 days to go!! : )

    We always book this far out and usually for February to CN. Next year we have a conflict in February and are looking to book for sometime in March or April, once again to be dictated by our schedules here. I think you will find a lot of people book way, way early. Heck I have had a countdown going for almost 400 days for a trip to Couples.

    Artie... If you want to go next year you are CRAZY not to book now. The early bookings specials always have the best prices. We have already booked for June 28 thru July 6, 2013 at CN. We will celebrate the 4th of July with a great group of new friends. We met in 2011 at CN over the 4th of July and we will all be meeting again next year to celebrate. Come and join us.

    We are! As soon as I saw the Early Escapes offer, I booked that day. We are booked at the end of October 2013 and are doing the Love Away plan so it is making the trip more affordable for us to book so far out. My husband and I were married at CTI in 2010 and had planned to try one of the Negril Couples on our next visit, but the extra resort credits for staying at an Ocho Couples swayed us, so we chose San Souci. We also liked the fact that there were no room category restrictions at CSS either. I know it is far away, but it's a nice little carrot dangling out there for us.

    Hibiscus CSS August 2013. For the travel ins and 400 it is worth it.

    JUST DO IT. You can't lose. We did the early booking last time and knew we wanted to do it again. We booked as soon as it was available. Half price rooms, $300 credit. We don't get the 7th night free or $500 because we like to get away during the Canadian winter so we go end of January. But who cares - $300 is pretty sweet.
    We are doing split of 7 days at CTI followed by 7 days at CSS. This gives us the $300 credit at both resorts. And if you have the romance rewards you get extra credits (we are passionate so we get $200 extra for each stay).
    Also its risk free. You put down $400 per booking and pay in full 45 days before the trip. If something comes up prior to the 45 days you can cancel with a full refund. If a better deal comes up, Couples will honour it. It doesn't get any better.
    You have something to look forward to. We are at 297 days to go and we are going home
    Also we book Penthouse for CSS which has limited rooms so to guarantee - this is the way to go.
    Good luck.

    we took advantage of the $300 bonus and booked for Dec 2013, 19-26 even though we're booked for this year for Christmas too! Our last rip we booked or should I say , I booked , was booked over 2 years ahead of time as a surprise for my husbands birthday last December. I feel it's NEVER to early to book a Couples vacation especially with the one you love!

    We are...

    CSA - 4/13/13 - 4/20/13 (Beachfront Suite) and
    CTI - 12/4/13 - 12/11/13 (Deluxe Ocean)

    We took advantage of the "book early for 2011" back in 2010. We booked 18 months out for travel in Nov'11. These are great deals and it is just as fun to count down the months as it is to count down the days!

    Shhhh... Don't tell my fiance, but I just booked us for our first anniversary for a return trip to CSA. We were just there 3/17 to 3/22 and had a fantastic time and while we were there decided to get married this month. As a wedding gift I booked for 4/12/2013 to 4/19/2013 and will be there for our first anniversary! (See you there Sea Ya Soon!)

    I just put a vacation countdown clock on my computer. I can't wait to go back--372 days sounds like such a long wait to go back to heaven on earth!

    Couldnt pass up that rate and the resort credit deal.. we'll be there Dec 17-26. Looks like there are 4 or 5 posters who have picked that week so far... seems like a good idea, we'll see

    619 days to go!

    We took advantage and booked for January 2013 already. It's a good deal and we saved money and will get more resort credits this way.

    We did too. It's the only way we can afford to go to CSA. April 13-20,2013 in the garden veranda suite. Love the Love away plan, it's not quite as painful to pay for. It's just painful to WAITfor!

    Booked the Beachfront Suite at CSS for April 20-28th 2013. We want to see the Ochi side of the island as we have been to Negril many times. Thought about CTI but I want something more tropical in it's feel. Through the "S" resorts we did MoBay, whitehouse and Negril. Never so glad as when I stopped drinking the Kool aid and found Couples. Had thought about CN again but seeing something new won out. We can always go back to CN or CSA the year after. So once we get back from this trip I can start the countdown agai, 14 days from tomorrow I will be on the CSA beach.

    I am planning a long awaited return to CN. It's been a few years.
    2001, 2003, 2006.
    Can anyone give any tips on when you book your airfare??? This is new to me as I always used a travel agent and never booked this far in advance. I will be flying out of Boston and looking to go end of August 2013.
    Thanks to all for any tips

    Generally speaking airlines put their schedule out 330 days in advance. However out of Boston we are lucky to have Jet Blue going to Montego Bay. They step to a different drummer & put their schedule out at different times. Go on their website & sign up. They will then send an email as they release new dates for sale. They are not always the cheapest but they are the best. Also they give you the first bag free per person so figure that in the total cost. That's at least $50 each way.

    CTI here we come! 307 more days until out 10th trip to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Wouldn't even think of going anywhere else. Looking so forward to meeting up with friends from the UK, Michigan's Upper Penninsula and Canada next February. Don't even ask how excited we are to see the staff once again. Will also be working to collect school supplies to deliver to the Three Hills Primary School. Those children are the best!

    It is so simple to book online using the Early Escapee's discount and the Love Away Plan for easy monthly charges to a credit card. And whatever you do, don't forget to take advantage of Club Mobay for a reasonable extra fee.

    Any questions, just ask Sun_princess.

    Hey - does anyone know what "the seventh night is not cumulative" mean? on the Early Escapes information page? I don't quite get it .... the 7th night is free, right? Then what does that mean?
