Last Minute Holidays

last minute holidays

Most of us expect last minute holidays to be discounted and to save a little cash by booking shortly before we plan to leave for a holiday. Historically, there used to be numerous late deals to take advantage of but as the holiday industry learnt to manage bookings more efficiently and not to offer greater capacity than they were certain to satisfy, the number of late booking offers has diminished.

That is not to say that it is impossible to obtain a better deal by waiting, there are still bargains to be found if you are not too fussy about where you go or your accommodation.

Holiday cottage last minute deals


There are probably more bargains in holiday cottages than many other forms of accommodation last minute. This is mainly because holidaymakers tend to book cottages in advance, sometimes up to a year ahead. The bookings are also often for a family or wider group. If anyone galls ill, the chances are that the holiday will have to be abandoned and it is that bit more difficult to re-let an independent holiday home last minute. It therefore pays to sign up for such deals to be sent to you by email. Various websites to check for last minute cottage booking are:

There is a selection of last-minute bargain breaks available all year round. Read on and obtain a few suggestions if you would like to arrange a last minute romantic break for two.

Is the holiday rental price the full price?


Mostly, the price shown for renting a holiday let is an all-inclusive price although extra costs could be added for dogs in the accommodation, for additional heating or logs.

Read Last Minute Deals carefully


Hotels, cruises and similar holiday choices often sell out of their popular options first and then have the chore of trying to shift the accommodation with less appeal. The trick is to make it more attractive with lower prices and incentives such as spending money or free wine. This accommodation is often at the less expensive end of the tariff and might be admirably suited to people who cannot afford to pay more. Sometimes, we are all happy to just have the holiday. Again, it is necessary to go through details with a fine tooth comb because you could find service charges added at the end of your stay.

Always have holiday insurance


Unexpected disasters happen, so it is always best to be prepared for such circumstances. It is also wise to select the right type of insurance to cover your particular holiday. General travel insurance may cover you for holidays abroad but not necessarily in the UK and remember that the reason you may have a last minute bargain is because an unexpected incident befell another party.
