How to Find Last Minute Holidays in the Sun

Travel Agents

A travel agent will often have details of last minute holidays in the sun displayed in their shop window. Whether these are cruises, flights or package deals, the advertised offers will usually be at greatly reduced prices as the agent looks to fill unsold holidays.

It is also worth asking inside the travel agency for last minute breaks and holidays. Their real time computer software links to available deals throughout the industry.


The internet provides users with a huge choice of travel websites. Many of these operate a price comparison search engine. By simply typing in details of required dates of travel, number of travellers and dates of travel, you will be offered a selection of the best deals available.

Many airlines offer standby flights. By visiting the sales desks at an airport you can request a seat and wait until one becomes available. These may be at reduced prices as the airlines don't like to travel with empty seats.

With careful planning and a flexible approach, it's possible to make great savings when booking last minute holidays to the sun.
