Some of us are put off going on a last minute holiday due to the stress of booking and getting ready to travel all in a short time frame. But actually, these type of ‘get booked and go’ holidays are often the best as they come around quickly so you’re not left waiting and dreaming of that much needed break for months and months. Instead you’re sunning beside a pool, cocktail in hand in a matter of weeks! Not to mention the fantastic deals to be had with last minute holidays.
If you’re worried about having time to get all the things you need for your holidays in the few weeks you’ve got to get organised then don’t panic; chances are, you already have a lot of things you can re-use from last year’s summer holiday, such as vests and shorts, sun glasses, bikinis etc. These things are all necessary items but they don’t necessarily need to be new. To save time and money, have a sort out and pull out all of your old summer gear, and write a list of any essentials that you need to buy so you don’t over spend at the shops. If you like a lot of beauty products then consider travel size toiletries and take the essentials, you can always buy more from the local supermarket when you arrive.
Travelling with little ones can be stressful but if you plan ahead you can sometimes save a lot of fuss and tears! Pack your children their own little hand luggage bags for the journey with things to do such as colouring pencils and paper, puzzles, books and snacks (bear in mind that you can’t take drinks and snacks through customs but you can purchase them once you’re through to departures).
Last minute holidays have many advantages and can make for a fun and exciting getaway in a short space of time, and they won’t break the bank. Fabulous!
