My 5 week trip to Europe starts on May 22nd. My first train trip will be on May 25th. My first car rental will probably fall around June 5th.
How early should I make the following reservations? – Train reservations for travel in Spain, France and Italy? My concern is if I wait too late (like end of April), I might not be able to get seats. Btw, I am planning to purchase a 3 country, 10 day flexi pass. – Car reservations: My concern is regarding rates and whether they will go up significantly as I get closer to my travel date. – Hostel reservations: I understand that the later I book the hostels, I run the risk of not getting a room in an affordable hostel. What about the rates? Do they tend to go up as I get closer to the travel date?
These questions might appear naive but I have no idea how things work in Europe. I highly appreciate your feedback.
