We all strive to be super organised but often life just isn’t like that! Sometimes you want to get away for a weekend break, take the kids away for half term, book a family holiday or whisk your partner away for a romantic trip for two and time is not on your side. Don’t panic! It’s never too late to book a last minute holiday cottage! Here are some handy tips for booking a fantastic last minute holiday in the UK.
When you are renting a last minute holiday cottage there will undoubtedly be less availability and choice than there would be earlier in the season, especially during our busiest periods. The solution to this is to keep open minded. Consider a different type of accommodation, an alternative area of the country or different length of stay. Being open to new ideas can really pay off as you not only get a fantastic last minute holiday but you get to explore a new area.
Invest a little time
Spend some time researching what is available, the time it will take to travel there and what there is to do once you get there. This way you can make an informed choice and you can really get the most out of your holiday, even when you have made a last minute booking. Time spent now will be well worth it once you get there!
Don’t travel too far
When you want to get away on a last minute break the last thing that you want to do is spend all of your time travelling. When you choose a holiday cottage in the UK it means that you don’t have to waste time getting to your destination, you can start enjoying your holiday straight away – especially vital when you are only away for a weekend break or a few nights. If the journey to your last minute cottage is long, you could plan to stop off for a day trip to break the journey up.
