How To Get Late Holiday Deals

Remember the good old days of late holiday deals to Benidorm from £99? Where did they go and why? Well for starters the price increase is probably self explanatory, not only has everything (except our wages perhaps) risen in the last few years, but airlines are being hit by rising fuel costs and airport taxes, leading to an increase in flight prices. So we can more or less forget about the £99 part, but is it still worth waiting for late holiday deals or should we be booking well in advance?

Well my advice would be if you know where you want to go and when, then book early as leaving it until the last minute will probably mean your resort or hotel is full or there are no seats left on the plane the day you want to go. If you are flexible, however, then the world might just be your oyster.

It’s always quite depressing in January anyway and summer seems such a long way off, but if you’re able to take a break from work, then why not look for some late holiday deals. Anything departing within a couple of weeks is classed as a late deal, and if you can be flexible on your date and departure airport, then you may get an even better deal. You have to be realistic though, times are hard and tour operators need to make money, however if it’s a case of selling a seat or not, they may just have a last minute panic and drop prices just to meet their capacity.

Avoiding popular weekend flights is also a good idea as is opting for night flights, these are always cheaper. Avoid school holidays and bank holidays as the prices at this time rarely, if ever drop. Prices will vary according to destination and time of year, for example Spain during our winter will be cheaper as the weather is not as hot as in the summer. If you find late holiday deals to long haul destinations, check first that it is not the rainy, monsoon or hurricane season. Popular destinations will obviously sell out sooner, and you will probably never get the late holiday deals you are hoping for to these destinations. So take the plunge, escape from the dreary drudge of everyday life and head for the sun. Grab your suitcase and your passport and get on the internet to see exactly which late holiday deals are available. And always remember, if you find that deal BOOK IT, if you don’t, someone else will.
