(NEW YORK) -- The busiest weeks of the summer travel season are just around the corner. In fact, hotel bookings for many resorts and airline reservations are already up from last year.
If you're planning on going away this summer and want a good deal, act fast.
"Don't delay in booking your travel," says Jeanine Tornatore with Orbitz Travel. "We're already into mid-June. This is the busiest travel season of the year."
To score an even better deal, be flexible with your schedule.
"You can get the best deals often times in the summer by traveling mid-week to the tourist destinations," Tornatore says. "Avoid traveling on a Friday or Saturday when a lot of families leave for their vacations."
And if you're looking to get away without going too far, check out Orlando, Florida -- this year's top travel destination.
"We're still seeing really great deals -- average hotel rates in the low 100s for travelers at three and four star hotels," says Tornatore.
