Summer may be coming to an end but that doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze in at least one more trip before it’s over. Last minute booking doesn’t always mean you will pay the most, in fact sometimes it’s the best time to book! But there are a few tips and tricks that you will need in order to find the perfect trip. How can you find the best option for you?
1.) Check Club memberships, credit cards or debit card rewards. You might be surprised by what you find. Once I didn’t realize how many reward points I earned, it was enough for a free flight across the country.
2.) Bundle it (flight, hotel, meals and or car services). Maybe you wanted to pick a different hotel, but if you bundle it with your flight you can get better deals than choosing to do it separately (e.g., Expedia).
3.) Travel somewhere nearby. Check to see if any local or nearby destination spots are offering discounts or deals. Hotels offer bundle deals with spa days, pampering, complimentary services and more. (Maybe travel a town over or have a staycation).
4.) Stay Flexible. Remember, if you are booking last-minute you won’t have the pick of the litter.
5.) Use Travel Apps. There are tons of travel apps that alert you when new deals are posted. Find your favorites, download them and see if they have anything that interests you.
