Last Minute International Flights

Our tips will help in your search to find last minute international flights

Although we here at Cheapflights rarely recommend waiting until the last minute to book a long-haul flight or vacation overseas, last-minute international flights do exist. The key is just knowing when to look – and where to look.

1. Sign up for savings
Insider newsletters often feature last-minute international flights and upcoming fare sales. Conveniently enough, they’re delivered directly to your inbox and require little to no work on your end. Cheapflights’ newsletter, for instance, spotlights both airfare and vacation travel deals weekly, as well as solo promotions as they come up. Sign up today to ensure you don’t miss out on the next great deal.

2. Scan early in the week
Major airlines typically release flight specials early in the week, between Monday and Wednesday. American, United and US Airways all feature last-minute international flights, typically which apply toward the upcoming weekend. Follow them and other airlines on Twitter to stay on top of savings.

3. Book quickly
If you see a low-fare flight to a destination you’ve been meaning to visit, book it. Last-minute international flights are snagged quickly and oftentimes aren’t repeated for a while. Whether it’s a flight sale to London through British Airways or a new, cheap route that Virgin Atlantic is promoting, remember to act fast.
