What are Last Minute Flights?

Last minute flights are flights that can be purchased very close to the flight departure date and time. To be considered last minute, the flight needs to have been booked a few days or weeks before departure, or even on the same day of departure. These types of flights are often booked by business travellers, anyone looking to go on a quick break, or those who urgently need to travel due to emergency circumstances. Last minute flights can be both cheap or expensive - airlines can lower prices if they need to quickly fill up empty seats on a plane, but can also increase ticket prices to take advantage of travellers who urgently need to travel and are willing to pay more to do so.

Flexible Destinations

If you're flexible with where you plan to take a break and don't mind venturing off to cities that aren't big tourist spots, you'll find your flights might be cheaper, especially at the very last minute. Instead of flying to Vancouver, why not try visiting Kelowna or Regina?

Flexible Dates

You can use our search form to see which days are cheapest to fly for various destinations. Airlines may reduce their ticket prices at the very last minute so they can fill up empty seats on the plane.

Night Flights

Night flights or red eye flights aren't very popular for most - this is because we want to avoid feeling tired or restless once we've landed at our destination, especially if we're going on vacation! However, these types of flights may also be cheaper than day-time flights due to their unpopularity, making them perfect for last minute trips.

Are last minute flights cheaper?

There is no concrete evidence to show that last minute flights are cheaper than those that aren't.
