Last Minute Travel

If you have some vacation time coming up and you haven't made any travel plans, you aren't out of luck. There are many last minute specials on airfare, hotels, rental cars, and cruises throughout the United States and throughout the world. Whether you're looking for cheap last minute beach trips or a cruise to exotic destinations in the Caribbean, the booking tool located on this page is great for comparing last minute travel deals.

Florida is one of the most popular places for last minute travel. Destinations such as Miami and Fort Lauderdale are known for their family friendly beaches offering activities such as swimming in the ocean, surfing, or going on deep-sea fishing expeditions. Florida also has a number of cheap last minute travel deals on hotels and all inclusive resorts that that offer lodging, entertainment, and fine dining for one low price. Many of the all inclusive resorts in Florida are located right on the beach or nearby popular amusement parks such as Universal Studios or Busch Gardens.

Mexico is known for its cheap last minute travel deals. Between June and November, which is the low season of tourism in Mexico, visitors can get ultra low rates on hotels and airfare to Mexico. Although Mexico experiences higher temperatures in the summer, there will be fewer tourists at the Mayan ruins and other sites and less people to compete with for a spot on the beach. The major resort cities of Cancun and Cozumel offer the most opportunities for cheap last minute airfare. Some last minute specials combine airfare with lodging at a Cancun hotel, offering you more savings than if you were to book them separately.

Taking a cruise is a great idea for a last minute package. Cruises allow you to travel to several destinations in a relatively short amount of time. For example, some cruises to the Caribbean depart from the Port Everglades cruise terminal near Fort Lauderdale and make day-long stops to islands such as the Bahamas, Jamaica, and Aruba. If you only have a weekend to spare for your last minute travel, there are many cruises around Mexico that only last for three days, stopping at a number of ports near the finest beaches in Mexico. The best thing about taking cruises at the last minute is the fact that you don't have to worry about planning your vacation itinerary or booking hotels. All you need to worry about is finding last minute airfare to the cruise ship port.

For endless possibilities in nightlife and entertainment, there is no better place for last minute specials than Las Vegas. You don't have to break your budget to have a good time in Las Vegas. Many of the hotels on the Strip offer discounted rates and discounts on nightly entertainment such as concerts and shows. The price for Las Vegas rental cars is usually quite low, depending on the type of car you decide on and the rental company you go through.

Whether you have a long weekend or two weeks or more to devote to your vacation, it is easier than ever to find cheap last minute travel deals where you can spend time on the beach or be entertained in a Las Vegas club.
