How to book a last minute holiday 2023

Things have been a bit odd this year to say the least, with the cost of living going through the roof and Summer breaks under uncertainty. You would be forgiven for not wanting to have planned ahead. If you still haven’t sorted out your Summer holiday fun, booking a last-minute lodge holiday in the UK can be done quickly and easily online. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you with the process:


Decide on the Location: First, determine the region or area in the UK where you want to spend your lodge holiday. The UK offers a variety of stunning landscapes, coastal areas, and countryside regions where you can find lodge accommodations. We personally think the South West UK is super, but we may be a bit biased!


Choose Dates: Decide on your travel dates. Since you’re looking for a last-minute booking, be flexible with your travel dates, as availability may be limited, especially during the school holidays.


Search Online: Google is your best friend here. Try searching for “last-minute lodge deals” where you will find holiday companies with discounted rates. We have our own 30% Summer Saver discount currently available to all new bookings.


Filter and Compare: Use the filters on these websites to specify your preferences, such as the location, number of guests, amenities, and budget. Compare the available options to find the one that suits your needs and budget.


Read Reviews: Before making a reservation, read reviews from previous guests to get an idea of the lodge’s quality, cleanliness, and overall experience. Look for recent reviews to ensure the information is up-to-date. We happen to be pretty proud of our 5 star reviews 😉


Contact the Property: If you find a lodge that you like, but it doesn’t offer last-minute online booking, call or email the property directly to inquire about availability for your desired dates. Sometimes, property owners may not have updated their online calendars but might still have availability. You can contact us here if you have any questions.


Be Flexible: As you’re booking last-minute, keep in mind that your options may be limited. Be flexible with your preferences regarding location, amenities, and the size of the lodge to increase your chances of finding availability.


Check for Discounts and Promotions: Some lodges might offer last-minute discounts or promotions to fill up vacant dates. Look for any coupon codes or special offers that can help you save on your booking. Like us, many Holiday Lodge companies will have discount pages. You can view our offers here.


Confirm and Book: Yay! You did it! Once you find a suitable lodge that fits your preferences and budget, proceed with the booking process. Make sure to carefully read and understand the terms and conditions, cancellation policies, and payment details before confirming your reservation.


Pack and Enjoy: It’s time to gooooooo! After completing the booking, prepare for your last-minute lodge holiday! Pack your bags, ensure you have all the necessary documents, and get ready to enjoy your time in the UK.


Remember that last-minute bookings can be subject to limited availability, so it’s essential to act quickly when you find a suitable lodge that meets your requirements. Happy holidays!
