You finally got the time off. That bonus check came through. You need to celebrate right now. You decided to dip into your savings. Whatever the reason, you’re going on a #lastminutetrip! What are some things you might be able to book on a last-minute trip?
Hotel Rooms in Vegas
Let’s face it, Las Vegas is the crown jewel of last-minute trips. This town is known for quick elopements and elaborate celebrations. If ever there were a town that embodied the spirit of going on vacation at the last possible minute, it would be Las Vegas. They are never at a loss for hotel rooms and they’re always ready and willing to take your money, either at the card tables or the buffet tables. Whatever the reason for your trip, Las Vegas is sure to accommodate you.
A Vacation Home
There are plenty of vacation home websites, and many houses open and ready today for your last-minute trip. It might be a little more expensive than if you booked it a few weeks ago, but that’s neither here nor there. Rent a fabulous house on the beach, in the country, by the river, or near the mountains. If you want to get away but you don’t want to stay in a hotel with a bunch of loud people, renting a vacation home is your best bet. You’ll have all the comforts of a home away from home.
Unless the establishment is seriously booked out for weeks on end, you’re more than likely to get your dinner booked wherever you’d like to go. However, if you want to book a dinner cruise around the bay, you’ll probably need some advance time for that. Depending on how “last minute” your last-minute trip truly is, you might be able to book your dinner cruise with a week or two notice.
It’s obvious, the closer you get to your date of departure, the more expensive your plane tickets will be. However, you’ll still be able to book them no problem. Just make sure you also book a rental car if needed and a hotel to stay on the other end of your flight at the same time. A last-minute trip doesn’t mean you shouldn’t at least do the bare minimum to prepare.
Theme Park Tickets
Unless you’re going to a place that puts a cap on the number of guests they let in per day, you can buy theme park tickets up until the time you literally walk through the gates to have your fun day of adventure. However, booking them somewhat in advance might get you cheaper prices or it might provide entry into fun shows or events. It’s a good idea to purchase your theme park tickets at the same time you book your airline, your hotel, and your rental car.
Last minute trips can be exciting and unpredictable, but make sure you have enough money to book your trip, as they can also be quite expensive.
