Last Minute Travel - Get the best deal.

Get the best deal at the last minute.

Last minute Travel – One of the two ways of making a great deal. The other way is when you purchase a ticket well in advance.

  1. The second tactic is easy. Find out where you want to go and make your reservations early.

    Check out Great Hotel Prices - Spend Less, Get More.

  2. The first method takes a little more work and luck to get the last minute deals. The keys are information and flexibility. If you can walk away from the deal, you can pick a deal… It just takes a little more planning.

To get last minute travel reservations for a hotel, call the front desk at the hotel itself.

When you ask the clerk for a reservation, be sure to ask, "Are there any discounts I can get?" You'll be surprised at what they can offer you.

Do not call the 800-###-#### number for the hotel chain. They can't give you any great last minute deals.

Remember, an empty hotel room is one that doesn't create revenue. So a discount of 20% is better than nothing.
