Last Minute Holidays & Late Deals 2019 / 2020

When the urge to travel strikes, you want to get to your favourite destinations as soon as possible. While conventional wisdom says that booking in advance is the easiest way to snag cheap holidays, budget flights and accommodation, you can actually find some of the best and interesting offers when you book a last-minute holiday. Whether it’s a getaway in Greece or a spa weekend in Spain, we’ve got the best offers for your next last-minute vacation. Save money and start your holiday sooner by reading our guide on how, where, and when to book a last-minute trip.

Why book a Last Minute holiday?

The main advantage to booking a last-minute holiday is the savings. As travel dates get closer, travel companies will drop their prices to avoid having empty seats on planes or vacant hotel rooms. If you're prepared to be flexible with your destination, hotel, and/or travel dates, you could end up getting a huge discount on the original price. Be sure to check the weather report before you travel as well—another advantage to a last-minute booking is that you can choose a destination with guaranteed sunshine.

When should I book a Last-Minute holiday?

Although last-minute deals are available year round, you’ll find the cheapest offers outside of July and August. Fewer people take holidays in May and late September, so you’re more likely to snag a summer holiday deal at a good price.

You’ll tend to find more of these “bookend” summer offers for Mediterranean destinations, which primarily cater to holidaymakers from elsewhere in Europe. Long haul destinations don't experience the same peaks in demand as the Mediterranean, so it’s harder to know when to look out for ultra-cheap offers.

Last Minute weekend getaways

What’s better than a spontaneous weekend getaway spent discovering a new city? Hotels in city centres often have an excess of free rooms on weekends, when demand from business travellers is low.

Price comparison sites let you explore deals at different hotels, but you can also get serious savings by calling or emailing hotels directly to see what they can offer. Many hotels are prepared to offer an upgrade, or throw in breakfast or an evening meal for last-minute guests. Make sure to check out our cheap last-minute City Breaks!

How do I book Last-Minute flights?

Budget airlines generally offer the best prices to those who book months in advance so if you're planning a last minute holiday you need to be tactical with your approach. Older, more well-established airlines are most likely to offer significant discounts for flights bought just a couple of days ahead of the travel dates. Use price comparison sites, sign up for airline newsletters, or even contact the airline directly. As always, if you can be flexible about your dates, times, and departure point you have a much better chance of getting a good deal.

A word to the wise—while booking last-minute flights and holidays can result in big savings, it generally doesn’t leave you much time to sort out passports and visas. Be sure to choose your destination carefully and check that you have all the required, up-to-date documents BEFORE you book.

Popular Last Minute destinations:

  • Greece: Ideal for foodies, history-lovers, beach bums, and nature enthusiasts, Greece is the perfect destination for any type of traveler.

  • Italy: Travel to Italy to experience world-famous food, breathtaking coasts, and dazzling cities with plenty to discover, like the ancient ruins of Rome, and the art museums of Florence.

  • Spain: Sunny Spain is a traveler’s dream, with easy connections between sleepy coastal towns and major cities like Barcelona with its impressive Gaudi architecture and Madrid with its famous tapas routes.

  • Canary Islands: No matter what you are looking for, the Canary Islands have the perfect destination for you.

  • France: From the sweet wines of the Loire Valley to the warm weather in Nice to the picturesque city streets of Paris. France is an indulgence for the senses.

  • Turkey: Can't decide if you want to stay in Europe or go to Asia? Visit Turkey and discover both continents!

Last Minute to Spain

If you’re looking for guaranteed sun, there’s no place better than Spain. Book a blissful Last Minute beach getaway to Majorca and Tenerife, or strap on your sandals to explore the busy streets of Barcelona and Madrid. Spain’s popularity means you can catch a flight almost any time of the day, and the travel times to most of the country’s hotspots are only a couple of hours—in no time at all you can be sipping sangria beachside in the balmy southern weather. For bigger savings (and more money to spend on that second order of tapas), our late deals give you the best and cheapest flight + accommodation combos. Sort out your next trip with just the click of a button, and soon you’ll be dipping your toes in the glittering blue waters of the Mediterranean.

Last Minute to Greece

Come for the food, stay for the views. It’s hard to choose a favorite place to stay in Greece, which gives you all the more reason to keep going back. For sun-seekers, there’s no question: the Greek islands are the envy of the rest of Europe, and the perfect place for a last minute holiday spent laying on the beach. Historical centers like Athens and Thessaloniki offer a little something for everyone, packed with fascinating ancient ruins, laid-back cafes, family-friendly museums, and stroll-able city streets. Want to stay in a traditional white-washed house? Want a room overlooking the turquoise waters? Browse through our late deals to find the best flights + accommodation for your next trip to Greece.

Last Minute to Turkey

Package holidays to Turkey have never been more popular. From the mesmerizing rock formations of Cappadocia to the glittering seaside towns of Antalya, Turkey is great for relaxing on the beach, exploring a new city, or stepping into nature. Turkey may seem like a far flight, but it’s actually relatively easy to sneak in a cheap weekend getaway if you play your cards right. Make the most of your time by booking flights + accommodation all in one, leaving you more time to plan how you’ll spend your days combing through the markets of Istanbul, soaking in the soothing waters of the Bodrum Peninsula, or hiking the mountainous Lycian way.
