Last Minute Flights

There are some tips and tricks to finding the cheapest last minute flight deals with any airline. You'll want to consider which destinations you'd like to fly to, what dates you can fly and the time of your flight. Follow our tips below to find the best flight for you.

Flexible Destinations

If you're looking to get away but don't know where to fly to, it's a good idea to be as flexible as possible with destinations. Be open-minded about where you plan to travel -  if you're dreaming of spending time on the beach, why not hop on a plane to Algarve or Costa Brava?

Flexible Dates

Got some space in your diary? Why not book a last minute flight today and hop on a spontaneous trip for your departure tomorrow? It's great to be flexible with dates as you can find some great deals on last minute flights. You may find that it's cheaper to fly a day before or a day after than you had originally planned. 

Night Flights

Another trick to booking last minute flights is to look for flights that depart at night as they can be cheaper - these flights are seen as less desirable than morning and afternoon flights. If you're a business traveller we recommend that you look at red-eye flights. These flights depart late at night and arrive early morning the following day.

Why are last minute flights so expensive?

However, some airlines offer great discounts on last minute flights, as they need to fill the empty seats on the plane.
