Last Minute Summer Vacations: Book and Save

Posted by Natasha Jervis on 18 July 2012

Do you know that you can save hundreds of dollars on all-inclusive vacations, flights, hotels and resorts and cruises if you book at the last minute?

It may sound like sitting on standby and too risky, but in the long run you will be thankful. Imagine cruising the open blue, laying upon sun-kissed beaches in the Caribbean or Mexico and pampering yourself with spa treatments at luxury resorts; all for less than what you would normally pay if you book months ahead of time. Here is how you can book flights, hotels and cruises at the last minute and save, save, save!

#1: Do your research and compare deals from a variety of travel companies. Wait until 2 months before your date of travel and see if there have been any cancellations that you can take advantage of.

#2: Contact a knowleagable travel agent and tell them that you would like to book a last minute cruise, flight or hotel and they will keep you informed of any deals that pop up before your date of travel. While it may be a little risky to wait it out, you will be happy when you have saved some of your hard earned dollars.

#3: When you visit online travel retailers and travel search companies, set travel alerts. Prices do go up and down like a rollercoaster. A travel alert will give you the opportunity to take advantage of last minute deals that pop up in your email inbox.

#4: Be quick with your decision. If an amazing last minute travel deal comes your way, do not hesistate. It is a race to claim it and believe that someone is right behind you in line just waiting to book the travel deal as well. Book fast and save money.

#5: Keep an eye out for promotions on cruises, flights and hotels. Many companies promote last minute deals about two weeks before the actual travel dates or they have set dates inwhich you can book at lower prices for future travel. Act fast!
