so, I know flights get dearer the later you book but I thought holidays (flights + hotel/appt) got cheaper. I need to be in Tenerife next Saturday and can only travel that day (due to work commitments), and was keeping an eye on last minute deals. last week they had some at £230ish, this week they seem to be £350ish!

will they get cheaper nearer the date, or should I just shut up and book it now?

thanks :o)

Things only get cheaper nearer to their dates if there is little demand for them. (That applies to flights, holidays, concert tickets and lots of other date-specific offers as well).

There will be plenty of people seeking cheap holidays to the Canaries at this time of the year (because its the only short-haul destination which is still likely to be quite warm), so I'd be surprised if prices dropped between now and next Saturday. (Indeed, many flights might become full altogether, so you'd be unable to get on them at any price).

I'd book now!
As Chris says.......

When the schools go back, short haul warm locations peak again. Get in quick before your budget is blown.
