Last Minute Holidays

The difficult thing sometimes is not to get what we want but to know what we want. Once we have analysed our needs and wants (because holidays are that time of year in which you have to let your imagination run wild and realise our dreams) we will have to consider our budget.

But do not panic: there are many more options than we can adapt not only to our tastes and desires but also to our budget. The trick? Spend a little time planning those dream holidays and do so with some foresight and try to find a destination and accommodation that allows us to control our activities and expenses in advance.

The planning is often impossible with our daily lives, either because we book our holidays off at the last minute, or because we are somewhat chaotic and disorganised (yes, it’s the case for many). Luckily, the tourism sector in most of the destinations understands this and offers help for all those who at this point in July still have not got a clear idea of where to spend your days off.

Second chance are the last minute offers. You have to remember that they are not a miracle worker. When you are late you may have to settle for what there is, but if you look carefully maybe you will find precisely what you are looking for. So keep an open mind and get ready to enjoy a holiday.

1.- Choose more than one destination that you would like to go to (think, there are sure to be many more than you think). 3 should be enough.

2.- Search within each destination the area in which you would most like to set up your base camp (if you are going with is suitable for families and what other services you want within the area you have chosen.

4.- Do a search in hotel comparators to see the basic characteristics of the accomodation. Choose the ones that appeal to you for quality and price.

5.- Search each hotel on its official website and make a reservation from there. Virtually all hotels offer better price on their website than on the specialised comparison websites and search engines. You’re saving the middleman.

6.- Check all the offers that fit your dates.

7.- Book it up and countdown the days!

You don’t believe it? Then dare to check it for yourself. For example, choose a hotel group with accommodations specifically geared for families who travel with children and who want a special, different, dynamic and fun holiday. Check out Mallorca, one of the least accessible in summer, not only for price but because getting something on this Mediterranean island at the last minute can seem like a miracle. Check the offer’s tag of your official website, it is sure to be as useful as a comparison website if not better. In fact, there are chains like IBEROSTAR that promise to match the price if you find your holiday cheaper on another website than their official website. In fact, in addition to matching the price they will give you a 5% discount on top of that.

If you have been convinced by the chosen destination, other accommodations on Mallorca that have very interesting offers include, Protur Hotels, Garden Hotels, Ferrer Hotels and Gran Isla, which stands out with 2 large family resorts that seem tailor made for those who have children: the Pirates Village Apartments and the Jutland Family Resort.
