seeing whats trending. If an Airline launches a new route, I try to fly it when they are offering promotional fares, also competitors will often meet sell prices! Furthermore, I am loyal to Delta
and their Partners due to my Elite status with Delta Airlines. However, if I’m making a short hop less than 1000 miles, I’ll cheat and fly someone else if they are substantially cheaper.
worth cheating to me. Although not everyone may agree.
$250! More than twice the price! Also I wanted to try out Virgins First class and Prem Econony. So for $39 on my way to Seattle I upgraded to Premium and for $75 on the way down I upgraded to
first! Both very pleasant experiences and I still spent about the same amount of money!
This fall I went on a 6 day cruise of the Mediterranean that I booked for $250 (tax included!) a person! Sure it was inside cabin, but 6 days at a price of $41 a day it was cheaper then a hostel
+ food costs to travel Europe! So needless to say I booked it! And then to save even more money, instead of flying r/t to and from Venice, I did an open jaw ticket and bought the return leg home
from the cheapest airport I could find within Italy! This saving me another $300 and enticed me to see more of the countryside!
and will continue to travel! It saves me thousands each year! Sure there are places I want to see (Petra, Spain, Brazil, Komodo), however my list is VERY long and each time I start planning a
vacation I price them all out, starting with airfare. Then I compare prices and choose the cheapest!
