The Good Life, Travel
Now that the weather outside is frightening, and the holidays are here, the idea of a last-minute getaway can be very enticing.
It’s easier than ever to book at the spur of the moment,and it can net you a great deal, but it’s not for everyone. The trade-off is you may have to make a lot of compromises on the destination, the hotel and the kind of room you want. So the more you care about those things, the more you should plan ahead.
If you go the last-minute route, pick the destination first, rather than the date, because being flexible on the day you leave can give you more alternatives. And you’ll probably get the best selection if you can travel on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday.
