Late availability offers and last minute deals on holiday rentals
Treat yourself - and your wallet - with a last-minute break
HomeAway travel expert
We all know there are two ways to find the very best bargains: the early bird will certainly catch the worm, but so can the bird that swoops in at the last minute! With HomeAway’s selection of late availability offers, you can enjoy that much-needed break for less; and pick up some perks in the process! All you have to do is select your destination of choice, and cast your eyes left to our search bar. From here, you can click on our ‘Special Offers’ option under ‘Popular Searches’, and you’ll be rewarded with a virtual treasure trove of last-minute discounts and late availability deals.
You can save up to 50% off your accommodation costs if you book a holiday for the following week, or pick up nifty discounts with still a month or two to plan. What’s more, you might be surprised by some of the quirky extras homeowners are willing to throw in, whether it’s a guided tour of the surrounding area or unlimited house wine during your stay!
For the very best in bargain breaks, simply read on for our guide to late availability.
The lowdown on late availability offers
How to find the best deals
When you click on our ‘Special Offers’ option under ‘Popular Searches’, you’ll see a range of properties replete with orange banners. These are your guide to the best deals on offer, be it a 15% discount when you book a holiday to take next month, or an offer of discounted rates on extended stays. Simply browse by destination, property type or location, and you’ll find your dream deal in no time.
Best ways to filter
If you want a truly last-minute holiday and the affordable price tag to match, then take a look at our ‘Booking Options’. Located on the left-hand side of the page in our search bar, this facility allows you to choose whether you want to book now, or later. By booking there and then as you browse through our offers, you can receive fantastic discounts on accommodation, sometimes as much as 50% off.
Booking a last-minute break
Booking a last-minute break through HomeAway is a breeze. Hundreds of homeowners and property managers are more than happy to accept online payments, so you can grab the iron while it’s hot and book as you browse. Some homeowners ask that you enquire about late availability deals, rather than advertising them publicly, but don’t hesitate to get in touch: you could miss out on a bargain!
As well as offering discounts on the cost of accommodation, homeowners offer a whole range of exciting deals. Because they own the property in question, they can throw in some fantastic perks; and they’re a creative bunch to boot! You might benefit from free pool heating or waived cleaning fees, or enjoy some amazing BOGOF offers. You could even enjoy free cocktails throughout your stay, or find yourself welcomed with a gift basket or home-cooked dinner! So forget costly hotels: HomeAway homeowners know how to please!
Popular last-minute destinations
While you’ll find late availability deals around the world on our website, there are a few destinations which prove particularly popular. Spain, for example, is a great choice when you simply have to soak up some sunshine, and Paris is a favourite for surprise weekends away with your loved one. Often overlooked, however, are late availability deals in the United Kingdom, which actually offer some of the best deals on HomeAway. With discounted accommodation and no flights to speak of, you’ll be afforded that little bit more freedom.
When booking late availability deals, make sure your dates coincide with flight times. Sometimes it’s best to check what flights are available and when, before browsing our website for last-minute offers. When you’re grabbing a late bargain, you might not always be reimbursed if you’re forced to cancel abruptly. Of course, it’s always best to check this over before you make any hasty arrangements.
