    Half term holidays - too late for last minute deals?

    Am wanting to go on holiday at the next 1/2 term (19th or 20th feb for a week). I'm looking at the Canaries (but am after anywhere hot and sandy really), with my daughter.

    I've been monitoring rough prices and they seem relatively stable, but a little too pricey for my pocket. I've never been on holiday at this time of year, and haven't got a lot of experience with last minute deals anyway.

    When should I leap? Have I missed my chance already? Should I leave it right up to the week before? When is likely that they will 'run out'? Or am I just falling for their tricks...

    Any hints and tips from serial last minute deal holiday goers, especially anyone who's bought 1 for this time of year, are gratefully received!

    Thanks,

    E.M

    we were looking last night - and they are still really dear ! Think its because there isn't that many places to go where it is warm !

    Are you near an airport - there was a big change in prices if you could use Gatwick rather than other places (as usual) - but i have to say a week n Lanzarote was coming up dearer than our week in the summer in august last year in Menorca !

    Go on the Travelzoo website (www.travelzoo.com/uk). I've always found them to be good at offering great deals.

    I've not really seen a reduction am am wondering if there is going to be one...

    Luckily Gatwick is my nearest, so that would be my preferred airport!

    Thanks Philhib, I've been keeping an eye out there, but none of the deals so far have covered those dates in feb...

    I've just realised this is probably more a Misc post that a wanted...

    Think I'll repost there.
