There are those days when the weather is exceptionally bad when my wife and I would like to drop everything at a moment's notice pack our bags and escape on a trip. But often in these situations even if the planes and hotels look relatively empty---- fares and rates can be ridiculously high. So where are the very best places to find last second airline and hotel deals? An example from the west coast has been Pleasant Holidays which has had extraordinarily inexpensive last second fares on air, hotel and car to Hawaii at unbelievably low prices (e.g. $300 - $400 RT). Rumor has it they may be stopping their bulk purchases and last second fares later this spring. For those of you spontaneous members, whether paying cash or using mileage, what have you found to be the shrewdest way to take last minute vacation trips?
