Paying more to book in advance is a good idea during busy periods during high season and around the time of public holidays in Thailand when Thai people travel in large number from Bangkok to their home town or village to spend the holiday with their families. If you are planning to travel around the time of the middle of April (the time of the Thai festival of Songkran) we recommend booking a month in advance.
