There’s something so fulfilling about landing an awesome last minute deal on a holiday. After finalising the payment it finally kicks in that you’ve bagged a great UK break for a fraction of the price if you spent one night in London. If you are in the lucky position where you can head off on a holiday at the drop of a hat then last minute deals are the ones for you. You’ll save money and have more cash in your wallet to spend enjoying yourself whilst you’re away.
Have a look at these amazing tips that will help you grab a last minute break – before you know it you could be off enjoying the Great British outdoors with your loved ones.
Less Well Known Places
Of course we all know of the major destinations in the UK; London, Peak District, Lake District, Edinburgh and many more. Now it’s time for a change and to find some less known places that will be just as good but offer better value. I find the best way to do this is to chat to the older generation. Ask your parents, grand parents or the your friendly neighbour. I guarantee they will have some real gems for you!
If you’re flexible then you’ll find the price will be flexible too. Being able to alter your plans slightly is the key to last minute deals. The price of a holiday can drastically change from week to week. There could be a major event on in your destination the week you’d like to travel, prices will be inflated, the place will be busier so look at the following week – you’ll be shocked by how much the price can decrease.
Book As Late As Possible
Last minute really does mean last minute, and whilst it can be somewhat daunting because you have less time to prepare just remember that it will be worth it. The closer you book to the departure date the more you will save – packing, changing money, insurance etc can all be organised easily so don’t stress.
