Now here’s a post that’s written as much for me and my family as you and yours. We don’t always know if we will be able to get away, and sometimes only find out at the last minute.
If you’re the same, here are some ideas for where to find last minute family holidays and hotel deals for weekends away.
Please do leave a comment if you know of other great places to look as I would love to keep adding to the info here.
Even when we can’t get away, I still love to browse, to see the flights that we might take one day, and to do a bit of holiday dreaming…. ahhhhh….
Expedia’s specials and deals
I like to check out the Expedia Short Breaks webpage too, you never know what you might find there.
This is another handy page for specials: Expedia 72 Hour Sale
The Australia-wide Mega sale is currently on and worth a look.
It’s also good to check out the main Expedia Packages webpages to see what you might fancy, now or later.
Of course you can get to all of these places using the main Expedia webpage.
Sea World Specials
The Seaworld Resort on the Gold Coast is a terrific resort for families. I once took all four children there on my own when their dad was working away. And we had a great time! Exhausting, but a lot of laughs.
You can check the main Sea World Resort webpage here here anytime and will find links to deals and specials there.
Here are the current specials to check out:
Mantra Hotels + Resorts: Very Family-Friendly
Mantra Hotels and Resorts are found all over Australia and the main webpage is laid out really well and show all the current specials. Well worth a check for some holidays ideas and inspiration.
Mantra’s apartment hotels and resorts certainly pride themselves on catering to kinds and families well.
There’s a new Mantra Club Croc at Airlie Beach, that’s where I’d love to be heading these holidays!
Booking.com’s Last-Minute Specials and Deals
I like Booking.com as you generally don’t need to pay up front and can cancel bookings if you need to. Also their website is very easy to use. Just click on the Find Deals tab to check out last minute bargains, see image above.
Readers of this blog love to visit Canberra, Jervis Bay, Orange and Bathurst; see below some widgets to find good deals in these places.
Just search the blog to find out all the best places to see and do in these places.
So this is a start, and I’ll add in more last-minute deals pages as I find them.
