Feel summer trickling away? There’s still time to squeeze in one more trip in the form of a fun last-minute getaway! Grab your friends or family, clear the weekend, and scoot! According to, some of the best cities for last- minute deals include Las Vegas, Chicago, Washington D.C., and New York. Follow the tips below to quickly plan your weekend and get going.

Chances are, most airline and hotels haven’t reached their capacity yet, so you have a good chance of finding a bargain. Many airlines offer last-minute airfares at the beginning of the week. Check websites like Expedia, Orbitz, and Travelocity for discount air and hotel rates.

If you don’t have a destination in mind, websites like 11th Hour, offer a variety of getaway options that can send you off as soon as twenty-four hours after purchase. Tour companies desperate to fill vacancies sell discounted tickets to 11th Hour, which is perfect for your last minute departure. Also, check out Priceline’s Weekend Getaway deals if you’re looking to travel Thursday through Monday. Priceline offers air and hotel packages of separate booking.

Choose a place or let a discounted rate do the choosing for you, and get out there!
