The growth of the internet and low-cost airlines has transformed last-minute flights into a huge industry: you surf the internet and there is a flight cheap enough for you to buy right away and leave this weekend. However, if you are considering booking last-minute trips, there are a few things you need to know.
An important point to note is that you cannot trust the prices you see in advertising for last-minute trips. This is due to the common practice of excluding reservation fees, airport taxes, and all kinds of other small extras from the price; All of these are added right away when you pull out your card and you’re ready to pay, hopefully you won’t want to roll back by then.
Also, you should be aware that just because a flight says it is going to a large city like London or Paris does not mean that the airport is near. Low-cost airlines use smaller airports to avoid paying higher airport fees at larger airports, and these smaller airports can be within two hours of the city center by often unreliable public transport. In some cases, you may end up paying the same amount as you did for plane tickets just to catch the train to the place you thought was your destination.
On airlines that accept seat reservations, it is also worth noting that last-minute flights will only contain seats that no one else wants, which generally means seats in the middle of the row. This can be very important if you feel dizzy, or if you really want to sit together as a couple or family.
The biggest problem is that last-minute trips are not always refundable. If you are going to buy one on a rush basis, make sure you can do so first, as there will be no opposition to the deal afterwards.
