A friend of a friend (yes, one of those!) said that they phoned center parcs on a Wednesday and got 40% off a weekend holiday for that approaching weekend. I phoned center parcs to see if they do last minute discounts and the lady at the end of the phone said she had never heard of such a thing and their promotions were already such good value for money that there was no need! (that told me!). However she did make a very slight reference to the marketing department occasionally allowing additional offers but wouldn't comment further! Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of this or am I completely wasting my time holding out for a last minute deal!!
