finding last minute packages
Does anyone have a suggestion for websites that help you find the best last minute deals from a particular city. Every one that I know of asks for your destination and I would like to know many options I'm not set on any one destination.

You can sign up for e-mail notifications from airlines, and on-line agencies such as priceline, cheapoair, airfarewatchdog, travelzoo and even Fodors. However, genuine last-minute selloffs seem to belong to the past as the airlines manage their capacities more tightly.

You put in your base city, and find local deals. It also lists last minute tours, hotels, special airfare, etc. it then directs you to the web sit making the offers. Fun to look and I have found good deals on airfare and cruises a couple of times.

I like Jetsetter, too, but as far as I know it's only hotels and resorts, and higher-end ones.

Sassafrass, I do love Travelzoo and receive emails from many travel sites with deals. I guess it just seems like the deals show up as their best deals (from whatever location will be cheapest to fly out of) rather than the best deals from your particular city. When you go in to check on the deals and add in where you will be coming from it is usually not that great of a deal after all. I just wish there was one that would give the real deal from your location right off :/

Thanks for the feed back all :)
