A great holiday doesn’t have to break the bank. It’s just a matter of looking in the right place at the right time and you could quickly find yourself jetting off to warmer climes even sooner than you think, even if like the rest of us, you’ve have had to tighten the old purse strings in recent years.
Booking a Last Minute Package
Generally the rule for getting a bargain package holiday is the later the better. Cheap package holidays are simply impossible to ignore because of the wide array of benefits that they bring. Flights, transfers and accommodation are all included making your booking as stress free as possible. Simply arrive at the airport and be taken right to the door of your accommodation.
Why Book Last Minute
Just why are last minute packages such a bargain? Simply because tour operators start to panic as the flight and holiday date approaches, and if they haven’t got those plane seats sat on and those apartment rooms occupied, they’re going to lose out. Some money is better than no money, so they drive the prices down in desperation. If you’re not too fussy about where you’re going to go, and are happy to try just about anywhere, then last minute package deals are the way to go. It’s all about flexibility and not being too fussy.
When to Fly
If you can fly out on Tuesday or Wednesday, invariably you’ll find these are the cheapest days to fly to your bargain destination. On the other hand, Fridays and Sundays are usually the most expensive days to fly out. And if you’re prepared to fly out during unsociable hours, then you can make further savings on your bargain package deal.
Where Might You Go Last Minute?
Spain has plenty of choice when it comes to the number of last minute holiday destinations on offer. Very often, good value last minute deals can be found for destinations in Greece and Cyprus too, both are within easy flight time from the UK. The advantage of Turkey, of course, is that it still uses the Lira and costs are usually cheaper, saving you even more money.
So, look for a last minute package holiday for your next bargain holiday. You could be pleasantly surprised at where your money will take you. Swapping umbrellas for parasols could prove cheaper than you think.
