Not left it quite that late but have made used of KLM last minute flight offers for next day travel.
Used to be every Thursday at about 1pm they’d publish a number of shorthaul and longhaul destinations for bargain prices. Conditions were the outward flight had to be next day, return flight at least 2 days later (ie Sunday or later).
At least that gives time to pack a bag that evening, and book somewhere to stay the following evening.
No idea if they (or any others) still do that.Posted 5 years agofreddygMember
I’ve done it before – but not since the mid 90’s when I was younger and carefree. I’m having palpitations at the thought of doing it (with wife & kids in tow) now!
We never book anywhere more than a week in advance using that internet. Always save a few £’s (not that much any more) and enjoy the spontaneity and lack of planning required.Posted 5 years agofreddygMember
It can be done.
In 2004 MrsG and I (pre-BabyGs) spent almost 3 weeks in Mauritius for under £2k including spending and a full weeks worth of scuba diving.
Find a scheduled flight, then look for independent cheap accommodation. We ended up with a 2star duplex apartment tied to a small independent hotel. It was basic but spotless.Posted 5 years ago
