2. Early bird offers

Many homeowners offer discounts when you book well in advance. Some of us prefer to be spontaneous when we fancy a holiday, but there’s nothing wrong with being prepared months, or even a year, beforehand. Indeed, it’s a great idea when you’ve been planning to visit a special destination for some time, or even if you have a wedding or specific event you want to attend. The best thing about early bird offers is that you may be reimbursed if you have to cancel the holiday, but it’s always worth checking in with the owner first.

3. Late availability offers

Whether you’ve a carefree attitude to travel or you want to treat that special someone with a surprise, HomeAway homeowners offer great last-minute deals. You can enjoy discounts of up to 50% off if you’re willing to travel the following week, but you’ll still find nifty savings when you book a month or two in advance. One thing to bear in mind with late availability offers, however, is that you may not be refunded if you have to cancel abruptly. It’s always best to check with the homeowner or property manager before booking hastily!

5. Best destinations for budget breaks

Most of our special offers can be found at European and American destinations, but we have deals for featured Caribbean, African and Asian properties too. You can browse special offers around the world, but also select a destination if you have somewhere specific in mind. When you need a sun-soaked break, Spain, Italy and Portugal should be your first port of call, but last-minute city breaks can be found in Paris, Berlin and London. Of course, it’s always worth checking our early bird offers if you dream of a break in Thailand or India: by saving on accommodation what you have to pay for in flights, you can enjoy a holiday in the lap of luxury for less.
