Talk With a Travel Agent
If you don’t really have a preference as to where you want to go for your vacation, speak to a travel agent. If you have a specific budget that you need to stick to, a travel agent will be able to find you a great package deal that includes hotel rooms, flights, and rental cars if necessary. Using a travel agent is the best way to find out about cheap last minute vacations if you and your friends are the spontaneous type.
Head to the Airport
This may seem a little crazy, but the most spontaneous way to take advantage of cheap last minute vacations is to pack a bag and head straight to the airport. Airlines may be able to fill vacant seats with cheap tickets sold directly from their ticket counters. The only thing that you and your friends need to decide is whether or not you will be traveling internationally.
