When do you feel is the best time to raise your prices?
End of season?
Mid season?
Other?

Why then?

At the end of the season before the start of the next season. You shoud honor your prices all throughout the season. Now if you want to raise prices for new customers, that is fine I feel

I was just reading an article talking about how sometimes it is good to raise the prices mid season so the customer doesn't have a chance to shop around.

Interesting point of view. I guess that would work if you didn't use a contract.

But I feel that you could get a bad reputation for doing something like that. I have paid the $200 cancellation fees to companies before because they have done something similar to that. Perfect example was cell phone. My cell phone company was ripping me off for roaming. So I paid the early cancellation fee.

I can totally understand your point of view on this. Do you know of any LCOs that raise prices during the mid season?
