Last-minute Airfare, Hotels and Packages

Waiting until the last minute is not always the best way to get budget prices, there are still plenty of options. First choice destinations might be out of the question, but finding cheap packages is feasible with help from the sites below.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Since you're starting late, be flexible about where you go and for how long.
  • Most airline sites dedicate at least a small section to "last-minute packages." It's often much cheaper to book a last-minute flight through a package deal; you can use the other parts of the package, or just ignore them.
  • Sites like also tend to sell these last-minute packages frequently, but like the airlines, will let you keep the plane ticket and simply ignore the hotel or car rental without incurring any sort of penalty.
