A summer holiday by the sea for a family of four can cost thousands of euros. No wonder many families are looking for the stock last minute stays that travel agents always offer. You can save from 10% up to more than 60% of the usual price of the stay. However, it has its pitfalls, which are good to know about.

Last minute vacations are not a stock just for nothing. This means that the hotel needs to occupy the last few available rooms left. Most of them are just small double rooms without sea view, which are not among the best the hotel has to offer. This makes a clear recommendation:
Last minute holidays are more suitable for young people in pairs who do not care about comfort and for them the low price is paramount..
Getting a nice apartment or a large family room like last minute can be very difficult. Therefore, if you travel four or more, you better not rely very much on the last minute, otherwise you may experience disappointment. You may also be limited in your choice of destination.
You will certainly come across interesting last minutes in Croatia, Turkey, Italy or Greece, but choosing a specific location in a given country can be a problem. The offer is simply limited to what is left.
Last minute holidays are therefore suitable for less demanding tourists, who basically do not care where they travel. Mainly to make it cheap and by the sea. Time flexibility is also important, ie the ability to pack up and fly off within a few days. In that case, you can also watch ultra last minute stays, where prices can fall by more than half.
Are you going on vacation?
Even with last minute holidays, they are offered by several competing travel agents, so it is advantageous to bury yourself a little in their offers. If you search for the same trip on the Internet at different travel agencies, you may find that they offer it cheaper somewhere.
Various holiday comparators, such as invia.sk or refundo.sk, are a good tool when looking for the best price offer..
If you are fluent in languages, be sure to check out the foreign travel sites as well. In particular, Austrian and German offices often offer cheaper tours with better services. The reason is a larger market and competition. In this case, however, expect a departure from Vienna or another foreign airport.
A good alternative to last minute holidays is to travel on your own. Use comparison portals when buying a ticket and accommodation. Do not hesitate to search for the same flight or hotel on several sites, ideally in different language versions. You can save hundreds of euros.
For tickets, visit sites like flightor.com, kayak.ie or kiwi.com. Check out hotel rooms on sites like trivago.co.uk or farecompare.com.
Ideally, you are flexible with your departure and can pack up and go almost overnight. In that case, be sure to have special offers of tours and tickets sent to you by e-mail and you will be sure that you will get the best price.
