I've never really done this, but is it wise to wait until the last few days before a vacation to schedule things?

For instance, we are thinking of going one of two places (perhaps you've read about them in earlier questions I have had): New Orleans or San Antonio in March.

If I was to wait until say, three or four days before we need to leave, can I expect to get some cut rates on flights, hotels, cars, etc.?

Usually I have our plans for vacations pretty well mapped out several months in advance. But, for some reason, this time it's been harder for me to nail down good flights and accommodations at reasonable prices and in safe areas with good ratings by previous travelers.

Any help would be appreciated.
