Our Top Tip!

We love those spontaneous, 'let's just go' last-minute holidays, but if you're just a last-minute kind of holidaymaker then you can make your trip a little more smooth-sailing with some prep work. We're not saying ditch the 'last-minute' part of your holiday, but if you know you're going to book something last minute at some point in the future, start checking you have everything you need in advance (like your passport being in date, sun cream, summer clothes etc.) If you gradually tick everything off your list before you even book, you'll have zero running around to do before you go. Perfecto!


Do holidays get cheaper last minute?

Yes and no. Booking a holiday last minute can result in securing a bargain. Airlines are desperate to fill their planes, so if they have lots of seats still available near to the departure date then they may significantly reduce the cost of these in order to fill the plane. The same is true for hotel rooms. So if you are flexible about where you want to go, then you can secure a great holiday at a low price last minute.

If, however, you have a specific destination in mind and/or specific dates you want to go, then you are generally much better off booking as early as possible. This way you secure the holiday and can also benefit from early booking discounts.

When's the best time to book a late deal holiday?

It all depends on how flexible you can be. If you can be extremely flexible on your destination and hotel, then it is probably best to book just a couple of days before departure, nabbing the last couple of seats on a plane and the last available room in a hotel.

When is the cheapest day to fly?

As with many things, flight pricing fluctuates based on supply and demand, so it’s not always clear cut which day is the cheapest to fly. But generally speaking, Tuesdays are the cheapest day to fly. If we are talking weekend flights only, Sundays are the cheapest day to jet away.

On the other side of the coin, Fridays are typically the most expensive day to fly.
