What are Last Minute Flights?

Last minute flights are flights bought very close to the departure date and time of the flight. These types of flights are usually bought a few days or weeks before the departure date - in some cases, last minute flights can also be available on the very same day of departure. Business travellers or those who need to travel for emergency circumstances frequently purchase last minute flights. Cheap flights can be found at the very last minute - this may be due to airlines needing to fill empty seats on the plane, however, there is no guarantee that all last minute flights are cheaper than normal flights.

Last Minute Flights Tips

To make things easier for you, we've outlined some tips and tricks to help you find the best cheap last minute flights with any airline. Things to consider include the destinations you're open to flying to, the dates you're available to travel and also the time of your flight.

Flexible Destinations

If you want the cheapest last minute flight deal, you'll need to be flexible with the destinations you want to fly to. Although you may already have a destination in mind, be more open-minded about where you're happy to fly. Instead of flying to Rome, why not explore other parts of Italy such as Tuscany, Naples or Milan?

Flexible Dates

As well as being flexible with where you can fly, you'll also want to consider being flexible with the dates you can fly. If you have space in the diary for a quick flight then why not be spontaneous and book today! These flights can sometimes be cheaper than most so you'll want to be quick when booking any last minute flight.

Night Flights

Night flights and red eye flights aren't for everybody - booking these flights means you'll depart late at night and arrive early in the morning of the next day, which may result in you feeling restless and exhausted. This is why these types of flights aren't desirable and therefore can be cheaper than daytime flights. If you're a business traveller, you may want to consider booking a last minute red eye flight with ITA Airways.
