Why buy Last-Minute Flights?

Last-minute flights cater to individuals requiring emergency travel or those with adaptable itineraries. Although purchasing a flight on short notice doesn't always result in a lower cost, such flights can occasionally be cheaper than those booked in advance, due to the airline's need to fill the plane.

Booking a flight 'last minute' is preferable a week before your chosen date although some people choose to book a flight and travel the next day. This means you have less chance of double booking on an important date and allows you to have more flexibility. Also sometimes the price of a flight can drop, enabling you to get a last-minute deal.


Sometimes making a booking in advance and planning ahead can be stressful therefore, some people may find it easier to book their flights as soon as they see a deal or feel like going away.


When booking with Alternative Airlines, the majority of our e-tickets are sent to you instantly or within 2 hours. However, please note that in some cases it might take up to 24 hours to receive your e-ticket.
