When you got to go, you got to go. As any regular traveler will tell you, sometimes the urge to get away happens so suddenly and powerfully, that you just want to arrange a trip at the last minute. With this in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to explore some excellent ways of making last-minute plans for a quick jaunt away. Here are three ideas you can use to drop everything and go somewhere else at a moment’s notice. But first, let’s go through the basics of everything you need to be aware of first.
If you travel with any regularity at all, you will know the importance of keeping your passport up to date. You don’t want to be in the situation where you go away on a Friday, and your passport runs out on the Sunday before you get home. It can be messy, expensive, and hugely irritating. You should also think about insurance. Does your policy cover you for regular trips, and if so, where does that cover end? Most UK insurance for regular travelers will cover you for the EU, but there may be the odd country that is excluded. Make sure that wherever you go, you have that insurance in place.
The whole experience of traveling is about finding new places and meeting new people. But you don’t have to go far to do it. How much do you know about the UK? There’s plenty of different scenery and special sites to visit, not to mention the wide range of people that you can meet. A weekend in Glasgow is much different to a night’s camping in a field in Wales. Think about buying a camper van to explore the UK – or even a motorbike and a tent. It’s a great way to get around and ever so flexible. All you need to do is fill her up with fuel and away you go.
Hang Around An Airport
If you want to get away but are struggling to come up with any ideas, why not try the airport? Just ask some questions at each airline’s front desks and ask them if they have any cheap, last-minute flights. If they have planes running with very few passengers, you can often get a great deal, and it’s also a great way of seeing the world. There’s an edge to it, too – it’s a little like Russian Roulette, without the immediate threat. You won’t know where you are going until a couple of hours – or less – before you fly.
Get A Deal On A Jet Charter
Now, if there’s a group of you that fancy a weekend away, then hiring a chartered flight from the likes of Stratos Private Jets could be within your reach. There is a couple of reasons why. Firstly, they operate on a per hour basis, so your group can all chip in and spread the cost. It could even work out cheaper than taking separate flights, depending on how lucky you are. Also, private jet firms often offer last-minute deals because they need to get back to their home territory. And, if you are flexible with your plans, then you could pick up a bargain – and the ultimate experience in luxury travel.
Enjoy your last minute trip!
