Why a last minute holiday is a deal for you
If money isn’t the first thing you factor in when booking a holiday, allow yourself to break with tradition. When thinking of how to plan your perfect getaway, all the procrastination may miraculously pay off. Rather than spend an eternity dwelling on booking details and poring over scrolls of information, a snap decision may land you an attractive last-minute deal. Since a single offer can get you a hefty discount, there is no need to be hard on yourself and stick to one destination only. Surprise yourself with a break to a place you have always dreamed of visiting or, if it’s out of your reach, bag a seat on a plane to a location you may never have considered going to.
Where to go for an exquisite last minute experience
A last minute deal is as fully fledged as you’d expect. We have a delicious selection of sunny spots as far (or as close) as the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, with the little gem of Abu Dhabi on the coast of the Persian Gulf crowning the list! Break the ice with or make a return visit to the evergreen destinations of the Canary Islands (Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura) and Madeira. Although temperatures vary throughout the year, you are still likely to get enough sunshine to pull through, even during winter!
While Madeira and the Canaries are a good pick for anyone not afraid to break a sweat on the beach and far beyond, there are a few other honourable mentions too. The locations of Marrakesh and Agadir in Morocco can flavour the vibrant atmosphere of your last-minute getaway with a pinch of culture like a trip to Africa’s north-western coast will no doubt provide an insider’s glimpse into a different culture.
Alternatively, a city break to the urban marvel called New York is sure to reel off a long list of visual wonders. The cityscape of Manhattan at night can provide an atmospheric backdrop to a late meal after a stroll in Central Park, or you may want to sneak out to Broadway and hunt for some autographs.
Last but not least come the charming destinations nestled around the Mediterranean region. Attractive as they are on their own merit, both Cyprus and Malta amaze holidaymakers with their diversity. With distinctly Greek and Turkish vibes, the islands provide equal opportunity for leisure lovers and culture vultures alike. Apart from their splendid climate, each island has something unique to offer; Cyprus beckons with the monumental Tombs of the Kings, and Malta flashes its older-than-Stonehenge Megalithic temples. For another brand of adventurous travellers, Costa Blanca and Costa Brava tantalise with their pulsating rhythms. These Spanish coasts are sure to breathe new life into anyone, even the faintest of heart!
