Last-minute travel is about making compromises, right -- sacrificing quality for the perfect location, or forgoing the perfect location for a bit of pampering instead? Wrong. And to prove it, we've put together a selection of top deluxe and luxury last-minute deals:
The Daily Telegraph describes a stay in Porto, Portugal as "the perfect break". We think so too, and with 50% off this luxury 3-night 16th century manor holiday, it just got even better. For £340, the deal includes flights from London Stansted or Liverpool on select July dates and three nights in a 5-star hillside manor house with a Michelin-starred restaurant.
The Gambia's natural beauty is "breathtaking" says The Guardian and at £649 so is the saving on this week-long holiday. For 43% less than usual, you get accommodation at the Sheraton Gambia Hotel Resort & Spa -- a 4-star property with a cliffside infinity pool overlooking the ocean -- plus flights and all meals and drinks. Valid on select dates in July and August.
If you're looking for a 5-star break that’s closer to home, then a 2-night stay at the 5-star Druids Glen in Wicklow, Ireland, could be just for you. For £101 per person, drift off to the scent of the lavender sprigs left on your pillow during the afternoon turndown. The deal, valid Sunday-Friday until 12 September, saves 39% on the regular price and includes £30 credit per person to spend at the hotel's spa.
