My inbox has been bombarded over recent months with offers of cheap travel and accommodation.

My inbox has been bombarded over recent months with offers of cheap travel and accommodation. Last autumn you couldn’t even get on a waiting list for Heathrow flights, let alone economy class. This time I not only flew economy from Heathrow, but there was even a choice of flights. My prime time flight was maybe a third empty (another first, in recent years), my seat costing a third of the price of my original inconvenient and vastly over-priced tickets - eat your heart out BA.
No business class then for this trip, but what joy to have a free middle seat and not be sat next to one of those keen types who feels he has to make the most of his marketing opportunities from the moment he boards the plane. There are many stories of half price accommodation and really cheap flights for the last-minute bookers, and a number of people have taken the option of a more relaxed trip by train across France.
