Are you dreaming of a last-minute booking to enjoy the Algarve sun? Despite recent developments on travel between Portugal and other European countries, we’re still seeing a big spike in bookings for August. The country is confident that the air bridge discussions will soon reach a happy conclusion, and we are too. Perhaps the idea of booking a last-minute holiday will trigger the organised side of you to scream in fear. ‘I have nothing planned, my summer wardrobe needs updating or how will I book everything I need’ are common worries for those last-minute getaways. Don’t worry...SandyBlue are here to cater to your every need. Here are some top tips to book an impromptu visit to the Algarve...
So, when we say ‘last-minute’ trip to the Algarve, it doesn’t mean you have to leave the next day. You do have the time to sit down and really plan everything, so use that time wisely. You don’t have to settle on the first deal you find, as it might not be the right one for you. Remember to use the filter options on searches to really narrow down the results to what you’re looking for.
Being flexible is really important with last-minute bookings. From flight times to the days you have to travel, you might find that the better deals are found with times and days you wouldn’t normally go for. You might even find flying from a different airport will land you with the best possible discount at the last-minute!
Here at SandyBlue, our reservations team work tirelessly to help enquiring tourists find the villa that’s right for them. An enquiry that highlights all of your necessities does not take long to write and you’ll get a response with amazing suggestions right away. Here are some things to cover in your enquiries so you can use the same template for all of them...
The world of online retail means you can order the main things you need without leaving your home. Draw up a list and start ticking those items off – remember, the airport will also have what you need...especially the sun cream. Don’t forget that!
