When is a deal considered last minute?

In my last minute ticker, I list you holidays that start within the next seven days . You can read off the travel period of the respective trips in the overview. For other travel providers, the definition of when a deal is considered a last minute may vary. Some travel providers classify deals with a travel period as a last minute within a month or two. That is different. My advice is to check out the listed travel period to make sure your last minute flights start.

What is last minute?

A  last-minute deal or offer is mentioned when a package holiday is still bookable within a short period of time prior to departure. Most deals come when flights and hotels are not booked, where the remaining space allocation allows a price reduction.

What are the differences between super last minute, ultra last minute or last-last minute?

The short answer is that there is no real difference. Super Last Minute is travel that starts in the next few days after booking. Some travel providers also call such trips Ultra Last Minute or Last Last Minute. Those who are spontaneous and waiting for super last minute travel, fly the cheapest on vacation. Tour operators make these offers because they try to sell the trips until the last moment. These trips include extra services such as  All Inclusive, a better room category or a free transfer service and are still reasonably priced.

How does last minute travel work?

You book a last minute trip as well as a normal package holiday with a tour operator or holiday provider. Last minute offers differ in the booking of normal package holidays in that they are bookable at short notice. Everything else is identical. Due to the short time between booking and arrival date, short-term travel is only payable by credit card. In addition, the providers require that you pay the entire travel price immediately upon booking. Make sure to take a look at the conditions of the respective provider or organizer before you book your holiday.

Last minute tips for perfect preparation

Be prepared for your last minute holiday! Here are the best tips for it. In the best case you should always have the following things ready:

  • Valid identity card and/or passport
    • Identity card allows entry into all EU countries
    • Passport reveals the whole world to you (the passport must be valid for at least six months in the travel period)
  • Entry permit required for entering the US ( ESTA ) (eg last minute to Miami, Los Angeles or Las Vegas)
  • Credit card proves to be helpful on vacation
  • Carrying suitcases or a travel bag (especially on Super Last Minute trips)

When should you book last minute deals?

Last minute deals are the most effective during low season. In high season travellers book their holidays most often. The reasons are different. A lot of families depend on the children’s school holidays. The same is true of teachers and childcare staff. When planning your holiday, you have no choice but to follow the general vacation. The organizers use the holidays to raise the prices of the trips. The summer season, when the weather is fine, is much sought after and more expensive. An inexpensive last minute holiday in the high season is possible, but you have to be flexible and not too picky. It is different with short-term travel in the off-season. Since the main season is the main travel time, many quotas are available in the off-season. If you book here at short notice, your chances are to get what you want and to travel cheaply. Suitable months are June, September, October and the rainy season in different destinations in the world. Summer temperatures are still prevailing in southern European countries until October. Especially the Canary Islands, but also Egypt or the Turkish Riviera know to convince in the intermediate months in spring and autumn with great weather. Therefore, you should use the warm summer months in Ireland and escape in the off-season our bad weather and fly last minute. How about Last Minute Gran Canaria or Last Minute Turkey? Cheap offers for the last minute holiday to escape the German winter, there are for the various islands in the Indian Ocean. Check out our list of the best travel times for the tropical destinations. It’s common in winter to get some great value on some amazing destinations. Cheap last minute flights or whole trips to get here makes the dream vacation even better!

Last minute holidays – what to expect

Last minute trips are usually package holidays at a cheaper price. Tour operators and providers put them together. To entice the customers, they add great inclusive services to the last minute hotels. All-inclusive board, the transfer in the resort or the train-to-flight ticket are the kind of extras you can expect. If you only book a last minute hotel, you will be offered services such as hotel meals, a higher room category or spa treatments. They make a favourable offer even more attractive for you in order to entice you to buy.

Last minute with children – a week of family fun

Flying last-minute with children is a good idea if you’re looking to save money. Many of the package tours usually take a week. A pleasant time for all ages – including your children. One-week last minute holiday packages are thus perfect for a family holiday. Especially if your children are not yet of a chargeable age, it makes sense to fly a little last minute. There are great benefits included and you save cash, which you can use sensibly for activities on vacation. Many last-minute hotels in different countries offer children up to a certain age a free night and free meals. The flights are also free of charge until a certain age. Thus, the parents pay only for themselves and take the Children for free on holidays.

What is cheaper? Early booking or last minute?

Both early booking and last minute travel are cheaper than regular travel. The reason is that the tour operators want to cover their costs completely. Early bird travel is cheaper because at this time all quotas are free. The tour operators try to fill these contingents and offer the early bird travel cheaper. Last minute offers are cheap, because aeroplanes and hotel rooms are still free, which the provider tries to fill. Shortly before departure, they sell them at a discounted price. It depends on which travel period you book. For the high season, public holidays and holidays it is advisable to book early. Early on, the tickets are cheaper because the travel providers sell the trips at cheaper prices. The closer the season gets, the more expensive the offers become. There is also in the main season remaining places, you can buy cheap. But you can not rely on that. It is fortunate that last minute travel is available for your desired destination.

Last Minute Mallorca, Turkey and Egypt – the most popular destinations

The most popular last minute destinations are Mallorca, Turkey, the Baltic Sea and Egypt, closely followed by the Canary Islands and Portugal. In addition to the largest Balearic island Lanzarote and Gran Canaria especially the Canary Islands belonging to Spain are popular. But even the Spanish mainland knows how to convince with holiday strongholds. Popular destinations for the last minute holiday include the Costa del Sol, the Costa de la Luz, the Costa Blanca and the Costa Brava. For Portugal fans, especially a  last minute holiday on Madeira is sought after. Other suitable and popular destinations for the last minute holiday are the Greek Islands, Calabria and the Golden Sands in Bulgaria.
