 Are you itching to jet off, but don’t have a vacation booked? Don’t panic! Last minute deals mean that you can fly away into the sunset in the next week or two, with the added bonus of much lower prices. But, if you’ve never booked a last minute deal before the process can be a bit daunting; here are a few tips to help walk you through the process:

Have Flexible Dates

If you’re traveling with your family and can only travel during school breaks, it can be difficult to keep your dates flexible. However, it’s still worth researching the prices of different dates and flight times that are within your children’s holidays. For families traveling with babies or very young children who aren’t yet in school, try picking dates that don’t overlap with the peak travel season.

Consider More Than One Location

While you may have your heart set on a Lanzarote vacation, keeping an open mind and considering multiple locations will give you the best chance of finding an unbeatable deal. You might even find a destination that you’d never even considered visiting before and end up falling in love with it! Plus, there’s nothing more exciting than discovering a place that’s completely fresh, and learning all about its history and culture through your visit.

Find Fun Activities

Are you a fervent foodie, an avid adventurer, or a family of history lovers? The internet is your friend! Research specific holiday activities that you, and your family, will be interested in. Take a look at local tourism websites first to find the main attractions in your chosen destination and make a list of the things you don’t want to miss. Then try and plan your days around visiting them. You can even book your admission tickets online to save yourself from spending time in line!

Avoid the more expensive on-site eateries at tourist attractions and, instead, do some research on the surrounding areas by looking at blogs maintained by local people. Recommendations from locals often result in some of the best, and most inexpensive, meals you’ll have on vacation—getting the low down before you go is invaluable when you’re looking to keep your spending low.

Holidays don’t have to be expensive, and last minute offers can open doors to destinations that you’ve never thought about! Get out there and discover something new, and you and your family can have a truly memorable vacation without breaking the bank.
