Last Minute Travel Made Easy

The growth of the internet and low cost airlines has transformed last minute flights into a huge industry – you can just wander around and after that there is a flight that is cheap enough for you to buy right away and go this Weekend. If you are thinking of booking last minute trips, there are a few things you need to know.


An important point to clarify is that you cannot trust the rates you see in advertising for last minute trips. This is due to the common practice of excluding reservation fees, airport taxes, and all kinds of small additions to the fee; They all add up when you pull out your card and are ready to pay – hopefully you won’t want to backtrack by then.

Also, you should be aware that just because a flight says it is going to a big city like London or Paris does not mean that the airport is near you. Low-cost airlines use smaller airports to avoid paying higher airport fees at larger airports, and these smaller airports can be two hours from the city center via often unreliable public transportation. In some cases, you may end up paying the same amount that you paid for airline tickets just to take the train to the place you thought was your destination.

On airlines that reserve seats, it is also worth noting that last minute flights will only contain seats that no one else wants, which generally means seats in the middle of the row. This can be very important if you are feeling upset or if you really want to sit together as a couple or family.

The biggest problem is that last minute trips are not always refundable. If you’re going to buy one on impulse, make sure you can do it first, as there won’t be any reversal of the deal afterward.

Book physical workspaces and discover information more easily

New Outlook updates help you quickly reserve real workspaces and view notes. Also, you can now create forms in the Office mobile app.

Reserve a physical workspace directly from Outlook: Since some organizations make it easy to get back to office buildings, meeting health and safety guidelines and keeping people healthy and comfortable is a top priority. To help, we’ve added the ability to reserve physical workspaces at the specified capacity and time in Outlook. This helps you limit the number of people who work together on site to provide a safe and productive experience for employees. After administrators create workspaces in Exchange Online, users will see a workspaces option when they schedule an event on their calendar, just as they would when booking a meeting room. This feature is available now.
