Whether your plans fell through or you just can’t face another Christmas with Aunt Shirley, there is still time to book a vacation for Christmas. Of course, there are a few hurdles in your way including price and availability. If price isn’t an issue, you can pretty much select your destination and go, but, for the rest of the world who has to watch what they spend do look into last minute cruise deals. You might not get the exact cabin category you wish to book, and, it make take searching beyond your favorite cruise line, chances are good you will find a ship that does still have cabins available. One of best sources for last minute booking is Cruise Compete. This website allows you to tell travel agents what type of cruise you wish to book along with dates, price and a variety of other factors, and, the travel agents compete for your business.
If cruising isn’t your type of vacation, and, a resort is more appealing check out Vacation Compete (a sister site of Cruise Compete.) Once again, you can control everything from dates of travel to the amenities at the resort (such as a gym) you are seeking, and, travel agents present their best deals to you.
Unfortunately, air travel isn’t always easy to find at the last minute during the holidays, but, certain dates such as Christmas day usually have more availability than other dates during this time of year. If at all possible try to avoid flying 2 to 3 days before Christmas as prices and demand will be at their peak. Good luck and happy holidays!
