Finding the best last second holidays
Last second holidays
It's all finally happening. You have managed to book the time off work, you're mentally planning your summery wardrobe and you're (almost) ready to sip cocktails by the beach.
All you need to do now is - get booking! Finding a last second holidays deal is one of the best ways to get a cut-price offer on breaks that wouldn't otherwise be filled. You just need to have the confidence to hold your nerve and wait until the last possible moment to get the best deal you can.
Whether you have an idea of where you want to go or you are open-minded about where you'd like to head, the best deals are to be found not in the travel agents, but on the web.
Some of the best websites to check out are Late Deals (www.latedeals.co.uk), Last-Minute On The Beach (www.last-minute.onthebeach.co.uk) and Last Minute.com (www.lastminute.com). The traditional travel operators such as Thomas Cook also do some great last minute deals (www.thomascook.com).
There are deals to suit every budget out there, from cheap package deals to luxury holidays and 5* for the price of 3* deals. Some of the most popular regions to choose from are Egypt, the Canaries, Tunisia, Turkey, Portugal and Majorca.
Of course if you're more of a culture vulture than a sun-worshipper, your best bet is to look for a city break deal in the cultural capitals of Europe. Lastminute.com is one of the best sites around for this type of break, not least because of its excellent link-ups with local hotels, enabling you to arrange an affordable last minute short break easily.
