We all know that there ain’t no holiday like a Parkdean holiday, but imagine the excitement of booking one just a few weeks or even days before you go. For all of you last minute lovers who thrive on being spontaneous and get a sense of achievement from booking the perfect holiday at a lower cost, you’ve come to the right place. Listen up bargain hunters, because we have some handy tips and things to consider to help you secure the holiday you’ve been looking for, at a fabulous price!

A last minute deal includes all of the usual things you’d expect to be included on a regular booking. The only difference between a normal holiday and a last minute booking is the lower price. With your last minute deal you will get your accommodation, on park entertainment passes and access to the park facilities, all included in the price. The details of what’s included in the specific offer will be clearly bullet pointed so you know what to expect when you arrive. Many of our holidays come with the option of dog friendly accommodation which means that for a fee you can bring your dog along for some last minute fun too!

Cheap Last Minute Holidays

If finding the cheapest deal is top of your priority list when booking a holiday, we’ve made this super quick and easy to do. Our last minute holidays UK search tool automatically shows you the cheapest holidays each park has coming up, so we recommend you use this to find your cheap deal. Last minute staycation deals are sometimes a cheaper option than booking well in advance as, occasionally, holidays will come down in price the closer it gets to the holiday arrival date - especially during quieter periods of the year and outside of the school holidays. You can also check out our cheap UK holiday offers to see what great deals we have available right now!

Last Minute School Holiday Breaks

As can be expected, our busiest periods are during the school holidays meaning last minute breaks around these times can be harder to find. If you have kids and your last minute break needs to be during the holidays, there are a few extra things you could consider when looking for a last minute deal. If you’re travelling to a different region from where you live, consider checking the term times for schools in different areas. Dates which are school holidays for your kids may not be the same elsewhere in the UK. This means that you could bag a great deal at a peak time for an off peak price! You may pay slightly more for a break during the holidays compared with during term time, but we still have plenty of cheap school holiday offers for you to snap up!

Last Minute Accommodation

When to Book a Last Minute Break

When you hear ‘last minute holiday’ you might think of scrambling the night before to get everything packed in time, but this isn’t always the case. Parkdean Resorts’ last minute UK breaks are holidays with a start date up to 2 months in advance of when you book. On the other hand, the uncertainty caused by COVID has seen last minute holidays becoming more popular than ever, with many customers choosing to book just a couple of days in advance. With COVID restrictions and guidance changing so regularly, we can understand why our customers might prefer to be on the safe side and wait until the last minute to book. Bear in mind though, sometimes leaving it too late to book could mean your ideal location may be fully booked, so if you’ve got your heart set on a specific park, we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

Book Online Last Minute

Booking your last minute break online has never been easier, with the help of our last minute holidays UK search tool. You can use this to narrow down your search and to ultimately find the best deal! You can select your location, the month you’d like to go on holiday and your holiday duration. If you need your break to be on specific dates, there’s also an option to select these. The best part about our last minute offers search tool is that you can select your budget and filter the price to as low as £99 for many of our locations.

Be Flexible

One of the main things which will help you to find a great deal when booking a last minute break is how flexible you can be. Last minute staycation breaks are perfect for people who have no limitations to the dates they can go on holiday. Couples or families with young kids can make the most of the cheaper holiday options during term time. We've also recently created Tot's Breaks which are tailor made holidays for families with children under 5. The best way to find the cheapest last minute UK deals is to be as flexible as possible. If you’re free to go on holiday at any time of the year, you could be in for some amazing deals!
