If you still haven’t decided what to do or where to go during the public holiday,  there is still a little time left to get advantage of some great last minute Eid Al Adha break deals you may find on the Internet. Breathtaking views in European resorts, luxury getaways, or low-cost offers for the whole family, you can check your budget and pick up the best holiday for you.

Eid Al Adha this year will bring some a 6-day holiday, but no matter whether you will work one day or take the whole week off, you can choose your own vacation. Of course, take into account your days off, your budget, and whether you are travelling solo or with your family and children. Basically, longer breaks will cost you more, when you book your travel and stay in the last minute. And if you haven’t done it yet, don’t despair. Traveling this Eid might not be as impossibly expensive as you think. There are few last-minute deals we have found from several companies on the Internet that should be able to satisfy every taste.

Search for discounted Eid breaks

If you are looking for a budget break and a real discount, forget about travel agencies and contact directly hotels and airlines. Travel agents might offer you a discount, but that will be off the real price plus their commission fee. Marriott’s hotels currently offer 20% off their room rates, if you book three or more nights on their website. All you have to do is pick a hotel in the U.S., Asia or the Caribbean and enter Promo Code V63 when you are making your reservation.

What you get: Comfortable and luxury stay in spacious villas and residences, with full kitchens, bedroom suites, studios and guestrooms.

Their other offer also grants you a 20% discount, but in hotels in New York. If you’ve never been to the city that never sleeps, now is your chance! Just make sure the Promo Code ADV appears in the time of booking.

Price: Of course, the prices vary depending on the resort you choose, but certainly, it will be at a 20% discount. The rates for Marriot hotels in New York start from $139.

They are offering special Eid packages to Dubai residents. The destinations to choose from are practically endless – Europe, Asia, the Asian Pacific, South and North America.
