Help Last Minute Travel
We all like to be able to plan a trip with plenty of advanced notice to get the best deals on
travel and accommodations, but sometimes things happen that require us to make last minute travel plans.
If you need to make last minute arrangements, don't fret! These tips will help you save money and get the best
possible deal on your trip, whether for business or pleasure, interstate or international travel.
- Ask for discounts.Sometimes, you won't know what deals exist without asking. Some airlines offer bereavement discounts if you're traveling because of a death in the family.
- Shop around.Many discount travel websites have special last minute travel deals that include flight, hotel, and rental car, or any variation thereof. If you see a good deal, grab it right away, because it may not be there when you're ready for it.
- Be flexible with dates. If your last minute travel allows you to choose your dates, be flexible with them and you'll have a great deal more freedom in finding the best deal.
- Don't be picky about your flight or hotel.If you're okay with not knowing the airline or the hotel chain before you
buy your ticket and room, you can get a great deal.
Don't think you can't get away with last minute international travel. You can find deals within a 90 day or shorter window if you know where to look.
Using any combination of these tips will help you make the most of your last minute travel arrangements.
