It pays to shop around

AdvantagesEasy to navigate, variety of services, some good deals

DisadvantagesNot always the cheapest, breaks listed are not always available at the price quoted, site can be frustratingly slow

Iíve been visiting the site for about three years now. When I first started using it, it was one of the only sites offering cut-price last minute holiday deals.

More to it than Travel

AdvantagesLast minute bookings, bargains at auction section, many other features

DisadvantagesPrices in some cases

"...of us would think of lastminute.com as being a provider of only cheap and instant holidays and other travel related services. This is where we are mistaken. lastminute.com provides much more than just Travel related services. I first became aware of this site whilst playing some of the games on Tombola. Lastminute.com is the sponsor of one of the games called “Zap”. I was really very impressed with the site and would like to elaborate ..." Read review

Thomas Cook to rescue Last Minute..

Advantagesoffers inspirational last minute ideas on range of servces

Disadvantagesnot tailor made, more suited to disposable incomes..? not cheapest, major technical problems with Newsletter, lack of customer services

A Great Site for Hotels

AdvantagesWide range of options; plenty of information on products

Disadvantagessite can be slow

"I first assumed that lastminute was primarily a flight booking site and did not use it. However, when I went looking for a good hotel in London I could afford I ended up - somehow - at the site and have used it regularly since. How good their deals are in other areas I do not know, but for hotels in London they are excellent. Go to the home page and click on the 'hotels' homepage. Then you can either do a search by entering London (or wherever) ..." Read review

Sardinia here we come - eventually!

AdvantagesLarge choice of flights

DisadvantagesCannot change your mind!

"...very expensive. We then found Lastminute.com which doesnít only deal with flights, in fact there is so much on the Home page it is a wonder we found the section for flights! Homepage Cerise pink is the bright colour that meets the eye, the name is in pink and the borders on the different sections are highlighted. There is a lovely picture of sea and sun, all I wanted, was to be transported. There are sections on hot beach deals, last second ..." Read review
