There are good and bad points about last minute holidays to Singapore. Many people like to have their vacations planned well in advance, giving them a chance to organize accommodation, transport and the finance required. It is also useful to have the opportunity to plan the holiday itinerary – particularly when visiting somewhere like Singapore where there is just so much sightseeing to cram into a short space of time.
On the other hand, there is much to be said about traveling at short notice. When you are placed in the position of making last minute travel arrangements, then you can make all sorts of savings to your budget.
When looking for the best deals the optimum place to start is online. There are many websites which offer superb deals to the Far East. Singapore Airlines, the world's most awarded airline, operate a fleet of modern aircraft. These are on hand for anyone looking to book visits to Singapore at short notice. Because Singapore's airport, Changi, is now Asia's leading hub, there will be many opportunities to book yourself aboard cheap flights to this location, particularly when flight organisers find they have spare seats left to fill.
The best place to get up-to-the-minute information is online, but a typical deal between May and November, for a Singapore Airlines flight from London Heathrow to Changi, will come in at between £800 and £900.
Looking for cut-price accommodation in Singapore is similarly straightforward. There are ample websites, such as Trip Advisor, that will highlight all the most economical places to book into. Within each site there are invariably reviews of the hotels written by previous customers. These are always an excellent indicator of the various merits of each hotel, as they are written entirely subjectively.
Hotels are always looking to fill their rooms, so keep an eye out for last minute bargains. Of course, a lot depends on exactly why you are visiting Singapore. If you are arriving on a business trip, then luxurious hotel accommodation is not usually high on your agenda. As long as your room is comfortable and there are contemporary facilities – such as WiFi access – then your stay will be perfectly accommodated. Similarly, if you intend doing a lot of sightseeing, then all you will be looking for is a home base – somewhere to recharge your batteries after a long day taking in the numerous visitor attractions.
Singapore has a longstanding history of welcoming visitors. So even if your last-minute deal is placing you in less than five-star surroundings, you can be assured your stay will still be extremely pleasant.
