Is it still possible to get cheap flights home for Thanksgiving? Yes!

Thanksgiving is just days away, but many are still contemplating a trip home. Not to worry, there are still a few last-minute travel deals out there for cheap airfare - and you might just get a better deal than those who booked weeks ago.

As the turkey-gobbling holiday approaches, several airlines have lowered fares to fill up the remaining seats.

The key to saving this late in the game is flexibility. It's certainly a gamble and if all the seats are filled on your route home, you may be stuck paying big bucks for that turkey dinner.

Currently, TravelZoo is offering deals for as low as $32 each way on domestic flights through Jan. 4. The best deals are for flights on Thanksgiving Day, returning the following Tuesday or Wednesday.

Sample fares include:

Long Beach to Las Vegas - $32

Boston to Newark - $39

Phoenix to Los Angeles - $59

New York to Washington, D.C. - $64

Chicago to San Francisco - $109

TravelZoo also has big last minute deals on luxury hotels in places like Austin, Boston, Atlanta, and Denver.

CheapOAir is also offering similar last-minute Thanksgiving deals for round trip travel on or after Nov. 23 through Nov. 31.

Sample fares include:

Las Vegas to Phoenix - $166

Orlando to Washington - $200

Phoenix to Denver - $241

Las Angeles to New York - $368

For these deals, you must book before Nov. 24, and if you use the code THANKS$10 you can get up to $10 off.

Daily car rental rates will average $37 over Thanksgiving week. That's an 11 percent decrease from one year ago. Companies like Alamo are offering steep discounts on last-minute car rentals, so if the savings are right, you could fly in to an alternative airport and rent a car to continue to your destination.

If you don't find what you need, here are some tips:

-Shop alternative airports.

-Sign up for deal alerts from airline and travel websites.

-Connect via Facebook and Twitter for Just for Friends deals.

-Check reduced airfare, usually released by airlines each Tuesday.
