Buy Last-Minute Flights with Grab PayLater

Can I book last minute flights?

What are Last-Minute Flights?

Last-minute flights are flights that are booked days/weeks before departure. These are usually booked by individuals who require urgent travel, or business travellers who need to attend last-minute meetings. It can sometimes be cost-effective to book last-minute flights where airlines occasionally lower prices to fill unoccupied seats, however, this isn't always the case.

The option to pay later for your last-minute flights with Grab PayLater is available here at Alternative Airlines. This means you won't need to pay the full cost of your last-minute flights upfront - you can travel at the last minute without any financial stress. Keep reading to find out more.

If you're booking last-minute flights at Alternative Airlines, please note that, although the majority of our e-tickets are sent within 2 hours after booking, it may take up to 24 hours in some circumstances for you to receive your e-ticket.

Last Minute Flights Tips

Booking cheap last-minute flights is possible but you'll need to be smart. It's important to be open to flying on different travel dates to what you had planned, and alternative airports that may not be the main gateway into your destination. To help you find the best last-minute flight option, follow our tips below:

Flexible Dates

Flexibility allows you to take advantage of any sudden price drops or discounted offers that may arise for specific dates. Be open to flying on weekdays or during off-peak seasons to have a higher chance of finding cheaper fares.

Multiple Airlines

Don't limit yourself to a single airline when flying to your chosen destination at the last minute. Compare prices and offerings from different airlines to increase your chances of finding the best last-minute flight deals anywhere in the world.

Connecting Flights

Sometimes, booking a last-minute flight with a layover can be cheaper than a direct flight. Explore connecting flights to your destination, as they may provide cost savings. Grab PayLater will be available as a payment method at checkout for any type of flight you book with any of the 600+ airlines we ticket.
