It’s a wonderful feeling to nab an incredible last-minute holiday at a rock bottom price – especially when the person in the seat next to you on the plane paid double what you did. Whether you’re after a short city break, a two-week escape or even something longer, there’s a great deal out there waiting to be booked. Here are our top tips to make sure you snap up a getaway for less.
Finding the perfect last-minute deal for you can be tricky – but it’s possible. You just need to know where and how to look.
Being flexible is key to landing a seriously cheap last-minute holiday. The more flexible you can be on the day, time and date of your departure, the more likely you are to snap up a bargain. The same goes for destination, too.
Consider flying at anti-social hours, mid-week when demand is lower, or outside of peak holiday periods - such as the summer school holidays – if you can. Look at holidays of different durations too, as sometimes two-week breaks offer excellent value for money compared to seven-night trips, for example.
Consider all of the options
Make sure the great deal you've found is the most competitive offer out there by comparing the price of a last-minute package holiday with how much it would cost to book accommodation and last-minute flights separately. And take a look at a few types of places to stay – from apartments and villas to hotels – to stand the best chance of finding a bargain.
An easy way to see all of the options in one place is to use a price-comparison site such as TravelSupermarket – just use our search tool and the filters on the left-hand side.
Think outside of the box
Fancy a city break combined with a beach holiday? You could head to the Costa del Sol for a cheap holiday by the beach, and then use it as a base for exploring places such as Granada, Seville, Malaga and Cordoba.
Or why not consider a package holiday to Orlando and get a few days on the beach in Miami thrown in, giving you theme parks, beaches and a city all in one trip?
Time it just right and you could bag yourself a great deal on a last-minute holiday, whether you're looking to book a family-friendly break or a romantic getaway. Here's how to do it.Read moreabout When is the best time to book a cheap last-minute holiday?
