USER EXPERIENCEThe LastMinute.com website is simple and user-friendly. However, we were a bit put off by the pop-up window that came up after initiating a new search encouraging us to compare prices on other travel websites.
PRICINGWe must say the package prices on LastMinute.com are exceptional! If you would like to book a weekend travel deal, this weekend or next, don’t be surprised if you can nail down the ENTIRE TRIP it for 1/2 the price of a normal airplane ticket. We found several 3-night last minute getaways for less than $300 per person, which included flight, hotel, and car (before taxes/fees). If we were to book the flight separately (same dates and airline) the flight we found was over $550 per person! Usually we are skeptical of the whole “save money booking a package” hype, but LastMinute.com truly has the best last minute deals around.
FEESFees are charged for airfare purchases. The amount is itemized at the time of purchase. $25 to change a hotel reservation & cancellation policies vary depending on the hotel. Read the terms before you buy. Vacations are generally non-refundable. If you cancel a package, it is are “subject to a penalty imposed by the vendors“.
REPUTATIONLastMinute.com has mixed reviews online. We found several customer complaints that Last Minute’s customer service is far less than expected.
UNIQUENESSThe best aspect of LastMinute.com is that it simply is what it is: last minute travel deals. The only problem we found is that most vacation packages are non-refundable. But, we feel since bookings are made at the last-minute anyhow, most travelers won’t have to cancel.
