Last minute travel

May 14, 2006 § Leave a comment

Airlines used to punish the last-minute travel planner with brutal high airfare, now there is a paradigm shift.  You can actually find good rate from last minute booking.  Some good resources:

  • You can sign up Southwest last minute fare alert service
  • Site59.com
  • LastMinuteTravel.com
  • 11thHourVacations.com
  • Travelzoo.com

Some tips of booking:

  • Sign up for e-mail alert from major airlines and hotels
  • Get a guarantee – some sites such as Expedia and Quikbook promise to match competitors’ price
  • Package it up – it is usually much cheaper if you tie up the airfare with hotels.  But be careful.  Some of the sites will still have this type of deal up even if it’s already sold out.  Use Travelzoo.com to check the availability.
