This is contentious; however for some types of trip you will generally get the lowest prices when you book early. Flights are generally cheaper the earlier you book. Only charter flights are ever cheaper when you book late.
Holidays that have a lot of demand such as all inclusive holidays, or those to the big fashionable destinations for the year, such sell out and do not need to be discounted. In fact at the last minute they can command prices that are higher than the brochure.
