Anyone good at very last minute breaks?

I’m wanting a very last minute trip to Amsterdam (or somewhere else popular in Europe if it’s a big price saving due to the budget) for literally next week Blush

Trying to get there and back for a couple of days as cheap as possible but I’ve never booked a holiday before, can anyone help advise?

I always thought there would be last minute bargains but everything seems cheaper way in advance Confused Thank you!

Travel republic have good deals. Where are you flying from and when do you want to go?

Try the package section of Jet2, Easyjet or BA for last minute city breaks. Be as flexible as you can on airports etc.

Or see what skyscanner comes up with in the 'I'll go anywhere' search.

Not sure if Amsterdam is ever going to be cheap as accomodation is usually expensive.

Somewhere like Malaga, Barcelona, Lisbon, Berlin might work out cheaper.

Skyscanner for flights, look at hostels if you want to go really cheap- Generator Hostel is fab in Amsterdam. Buy a travel pass, so you can hop on and off the trams.
