Where to Travel Last-Minute in 2020

(37 Fastest-Growing Destinations)

Popular last-minute travel site GoLastMinute crunched the numbers on over 150,000 last-minute flight searches to determine the best places for last-minute travel in the year 2020. We looked at the flight search share of destinations searched on GoLastMinute in the first week of 2019 and compared it to the first week of 2020. This analysis resulted in a list of 37 destinations that grew their search share year-over-year and is an indication of future popularity in the coming year.

What is most surprising is that the fastest-growing destinations were not the usual big hitters like Las Vegas, New York, or Los Angeles. The fastest-growing destination turned out to be Mexico City, an international destination, with 69% growth. Sarasota, Florida and Oklahoma City were second and third in the overall rankings with 40% and 39% growth respectively.

Internationally, along with number 1 overall Mexico City, we have Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in the number 2 spot. That means Mexico took the top 2 slots in the international category. Coming in at number 3 is the ever-popular London, United Kingdom with 19% growth year-over-year.
