In the Internet age last minute planning is not only possible, sometimes it can save you more money than months of advance planning. If you’re traveling with a friend, enlist your co-pilot as a bargain hunter. Apps like Hotels Tonight and websites like Priceline offer great last-minute deals. Many hotel apps and websites reward flexibility by granting steep discounts to customers willing to book a room blindly in a given area.
This approach doesn’t just apply to hotels. Whatever you’re interests may be, take a minute to look for last-minute deals, re-sales, and cancelations. Whether you’re looking to grab a Groupon for scuba lessons or to purchase game-time hockey tickets on StubHub, sometimes it pays to procrastinate.
