You’ve probably taken a last minute trip. Was it a day trip, a week-end, or longer? Did you have time to plan what you were doing and where you were going?
With airfares on the rise, sometimes a deal pops up that’s just too hard to pass. If this type of deal hits your radar, are you ready to go?
Here are some things to keep in mind when booking at the last minute.
Do you know all the costs? Do you have all the details? Will you pay by credit card?
Don’t fall for an email or call that says you’ve ‘won’ a trip. Usually, if you really did win something it will be given to you as a gift…not by some unknown phone number. If you’re still not sure, call your Better Business Bureau.
Do use a credit card to pay. This offers you the best protection if you change your mind or something isn’t quite right.
Then, grab your to-go bag and head to the airport. You have your passport, tickets, and phone…right?
