Can I book last minute flights?

What are Last-Minute Flights?

Last-minute flights are usually booked right before their departure date/time. Typically, these bookings are made only a few days or weeks before the scheduled takeoff date, with individuals who need urgent travel or business travellers being the usual customers. Although last-minute flights can present more cost-effective choices, as airlines try to fill unoccupied seats, it's essential to recognise that not every last-minute flight ensures lower prices.

The option to pay later for your last-minute flights with Tamara is available here at Alternative Airlines. 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

Discovering the most affordable last-minute flight deals to any destination involves certain strategies. Factors such as flexible travel dates and alternative airports should be taken into account. To assist you in finding the optimal last-minute flight option, follow the tips provided below.

Flexible Dates

Flexibility allows you to take advantage of any sudden price drops or discounted offers that may arise for specific dates. Consider flying on weekdays or during off-peak seasons for potentially lower fares.

Multiple Airlines
