Top Tips For Taking A Last Minute Trip

Do you want to get away for a little while? Feeling stressed with life at home? Why not take a last minute trip? Taking a last minute trip doesn’t need to be expensive or stressful. In fact, I have a load of tips here you can use to bag yourself an awesome last minute trip you’ll really enjoy! Take a look:

Be Flexible

You can’t be too picky if you plan on taking a last minute trip. You really need to be flexible if you want to get a great deal. You can still have a wonderful time, you just might need to go somewhere a little different! The more flexible you are with dates and location, the better. Who knows, you might even find some good all inclusive deals if you can be flexible enough!

Download an Itinerary

If you have little time to plan what you’re going to do or you have no idea what there is where you’re going, download an itinerary. There are so many ready made itineraries online, you are sure to find something perfect for you. You can change it a little if you need to, but it’ll take a lot of weight off your shoulders. Ready made itineraries are a saviour when I don’t have much time to plan.

Pack Light

Don’t overthink things or you’ll end up packing too much. You probably don’t need half the things that you think you need. Pack light. Make a list of things to take and stick to the essentials! Take clothes you can easily interchange with one another to make different outfits. You could even try to fit everything in a carry on bag to save even more money!


Find the Best Deal

Don’t just book the first deal you find. Find the best deal by shopping around on different websites and comparing them. You could even pop into travel agents and see what they have there. Make sure you explore all of your options. You can put your own holiday together rather than buying both of your flights and accommodation at once. Look at separate flights and accommodation, and even consider using multiple airports. It’ll take a little more time and planning, but it can help you to get so much money off the price of your trip!

Go Out of Peak Season

When you travel out of peak season, you’ll avoid tourists and have a much less stressful trip. Not only that, you’ll get the whole package cheaper. You might even find that activities are cheaper to do. This is my favourite tip as it means you can enjoy everything without feeling like a squashed sardine in a tin.

Use these tips for taking your last minute trip and I guarantee you’ll have a wonderful time. Try not to stress; take some deep breaths and just live in the moment. Worrying is a wasted emotion, so be spontaneous and don’t give it a second thought. Most importantly, enjoy yourself - you deserve it!
