Sometimes you’re feeling spontaneous. Sometimes life gets so hectic, you don’t have a chance to plan your holidays months in advance. So, whether you have a few days annual leave left to use or lose, or you’re craving an escape from the humdrum of everyday life, why not consider booking a last minute holiday?
Be flexible on Your Travel Dates
Stay open to different departure dates and flight times on those dates to get a better deal. Prices can fluctuate a lot from one day to the next, flexibility here will help you a lot and give you more options.
Look for Value, Not Just Price
If a deal looks too good to be true it probably is. When you see a price that’s so good you want to book it right now, stop and look a bit more closely. Where do you fly into, and where is your accommodation? You could end up spending way more on transfers and lose any savings you think you’ve made. Check how much baggage you’re allowed to avoid paying more. Research and budget how much you’ll need to spend each day of your trip.
Everyone wants to fly out on a weekend. That drives prices up and availability down. Opting to fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday could save you money, especially when booking last minute.
Travel in Low Season
This advice bears repeating. Even popular destinations can offer up good last minute deals when they’re not in their high season.
