Bag a last-minute BARGAIN
There are still packages available if you know where to look, says GH travel editor David Wickers. ❖ The number one rule is to be flexible. The more you are locked into a single departure date, resort or hotel, the bigger the challenge. Wait until after the school holidays and you’ll find more options. ❖ Most tour operators have a late availability page or discounts section on their websites. Check out, for example, britishairways.com, kuoni.co.uk, tui.co.uk, thomascook.com, cosmos.co.uk. ❖ Several websites focus on last-minute offerings, including holidaypirates.com, lastminute.com, travelzoo.com, secretescapes.com, travelrepublic.co.uk and 101holidays. co.uk/ newsletter. If you don’t want a package, compare prices on skyscanner.net and kayak.co.uk for scores of flights to global destinations.
