Last-minute holidays are a perfect way to catch a great hotel deal if you are an adventurous soul and don’t mind waiting until the last moment. In this case, you are a bit limited by choosing locations and accommodation options, but on the other hand, you can take advantage of up to 50% discounts from the regular rates. In addition, this type of holiday booking suits people that are always busy and don’t have enough time to make their plans in advance.
The most popular destinations for a great last-minute vacation in Bulgaria are the major touristic areas, such as the biggest beach or ski resorts. When an accommodation place appears to be not fully booked for a specific date, it discounts the vacant rooms.

There are things to do for everybody. Big sports complexes and facilities, water sports, beach library, parks and forests, fine sandy beach, and well-equipped SPA hotels with a wide range of healing and wellness services. Accommodation places are ranging in category from 2-stars to 5-stars, adjusted to suit every pocket;
- Sunny Day is a resort with limited access complexes, some of them equipped with professional SPA centres for wellness procedures and medical treatment;

- Borovets – the oldest ski resort, not by chance chosen as a place for building the winter estate of the former Bulgarian king;
- Pamporovo – the sunniest Bulgarian mountain resort, attractive for visiting both in the summer and in the winter.
In addition to those mentioned above, several all-inclusive complexes with remote locations also provide attractive last-minute offers for your holidays.
Choose your hotel type
As mentioned, the major hotels with last-minute offers are on the coastline (for the summer season) and in the mountains (for skiing in the winter), so in this regard, the selection is quite easy, and it is made depending on the season. If you select dates in the wings or off-season, you will have a bigger chance to get some amazing offers.
For beach ones, the wings of the season are the months of May, June, September, and October. It is not impossible to catch good deals in the high summer season (July and August), but you need to perform daily searches, and when the offer appears, react and book it immediately.
The lowest prices for ski holidays are in December before the Christmas period and after the mid of February. When you plan your ski vacation, you should also consider the weather and the period with the best snow coverage. It depends on the exact location of the resort and the altitude. But in general, for Bulgaria, the best ski period is from the middle of January till the middle or end of February.
It is essential to say that SPA and some mountain accommodation spots in the country are full all year round and it is not worth relying on getting last-minute deals there. If you want to book such a place, Boiana-MG advises you to make it very early in advance.
The SPA destinations are very popular in the summer because they are located mostly in picturesque mountain areas with moderate temperatures during the hot months. They are also popular in the winter because of the warming SPA procedures and hot water springs. In spring and autumn, the local people often make some weekend escapes in the most popular SPA resorts in Bulgaria.
For the best deals, you should look for a booking during weekdays.
The city accommodation places also do not fit into the typical last-minute bookings formula. If you want to make a city break in a particular location, it is better to plan it outside the busy business periods. These are weekend days (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and also all week long during the summer, especially in July and August, when people prefer a getaway to the holiday resorts.
You can also arrange your family holidays with last-minute bookings. There are some limitations in terms of available room types, but if you are not so demanding of room space, you can take advantage of some amazing deals.
Book your last minute holidays
There is no significant difference in booking such a holiday compared to regular bookings. You just need to select the offer which suits you best and send us a reservation request. Some of the offers are with instant confirmation, others are processed by our travel consultants. Once the booking is confirmed, you can pay and enjoy your bargain holiday.
The great offers are usually with a fixed duration and most often they are for less than 7 nights. So if you would like to book a bigger period, probably you should look for several to combine.
Additional information and tips
In the last-minute bookings, you need to be very fast in making the decision, because the most attractive deals disappear literally in hours so don’t be late!
