Annoying words or phrases No 173

Pre-book. “Pre” means to do something in advance. Booking something such as a ticket for an event is doing it in advance. Thus the “pre” part is redundant. In fact if you pre-book something,  strictly speaking it means you are booking a booking. Same if not worse: pre-order, which means you are going to order your order.
