Booking a last minute holiday can be a true sense of escapism.
Picture the scene – you’re sat at home or at work, it’s cold, it’s dark, you’re bored, and you’re wondering what happened to summer. This is quite a depressing picture, yes?
Maybe you’re simply fed up with a situation in your life, or you just feel the need to get away for a few days and simply breathe.
If this sounds like your current conundrum then there is help at hand in the form of money saving deals on last minute getaways to the sun.
Many people think that the way to save cash on holidays is to book early and save up over time, making it more manageable, as well as the potential to grab a free child place on a first come, first served basis. Well, yes, this is true, but if you weren’t planning on going away, and you wanted to be spontaneous, this isn’t an option for you. This is where the last minute deal comes in.
Basically, last minute holidays can be cheaper, not always, but can often be cheaper because package holiday people, as well as travel companies and hoteliers would rather sell their travel and hotel rooms cheaper than have them standing totally empty – any money is better than no money, right? Well, this is where it all works out fine and dandy for you, because you get a holiday for a cheaper price, you get that spontaneous break to the sun you were dreaming about when you looked out of your depressing office window, and you don’t break the bank overall.
It’s actually win-win.
Falcon Holidays offer some great value last minute deals to such sun-drenched places as the Canary Islands, with Lanzarote and Gran Canaria being huge winter sun favourites, or perhaps vibrant Tenerife is more your bag. The Canary Islands are great destinations all year around, because they are drenched in sun regardless of the month, and winter in particular offers a sunny, warm place to enjoy, with a totally chilled-out atmosphere. Many attractions are still open during this time, and it’s entirely possible to grab a suntan to make your friends back home jealous too.
Lanzarote in particular is a massively popular place to head during the winter months, and the landscapes on offer tell you the story of the volcanic past of the island, with Timanfaya National Park a must visit when you head to this year around destination.
Of course, it’s not all about the Canaries, and you can find deals to many other destinations on a last minute basis. All you need to do is decide that you’re going to take the plunge, check online at what is available, press the ‘book’ button, pay the money, and pack your suitcase. Don’t forget to check your passport is valid for at least six months after your return home, and you’re good to go.
Spontaneity is the spice of life, and when it comes to travel, this certainly rings true.
