Travelocity extends booking window for last second deals
Published: 31 Jul 2008: Travelocity and lastminute.com have extended the booking window for last second deals, allowing travelers to book three weeks in advance.
Until now, consumers could only purchase last second deals up to two weeks in advance.
"At a time when travel prices are increasing, and choices are decreasing, offering these deals further in advance is a way we can help our travelers continue to fulfill their travel wishes, despite these tougher economic times," said Noreen Henry, vice president of hotels and packaging for Travelocity.
Travelocity and lastminute.com offer last second weekend getaway packages, which can include flight and hotel with optional car, flight and car or hotel and car. They can be purchased from three weeks to three hours before departure (five hours for international travel).
