The number of last minute getaways we have on sale this week is much better than we have seen in the past several months. Last week, we had over 800 last minute opportunities to fly away for up to 65% off the normal going last minute rate.
For travel this weekend and next weekend we have just over 650 destinations on sale. Just remember, that if you book at least 21 days in advance, you may find cheaper airfares. For example, the no advance purchase airfare between Dallas and Newark is $825 roundtrip. However, our weekend airfare is only $324 roundtrip, which is valid for travel this weekend! Even so, if this weekend doesn't work for you, we suggest you look at booking at least seven days in advance and getting a nonstop roundtrip flight for only $259. Either way, you still save big bucks by being flexible!
Dallas to Houston with no advance purchase is $429 roundtrip. If you go this weekend, or with a 21-day advance purchase, it will only cost you $169 roundtrip.
Be sure to check out nearby airports. For example, Miami to Houston this weekend is $734 roundtrip nonstop. However, if you depart from Ft. Lauderdale, just a short 30-minute drive from Miami, and fly to Houston, you can depart for only $280 roundtrip, and that's nonstop! Talk about big savings for being flexible.

Airfares To Europe From $630 RT!
If you're flying to Europe this winter or spring thru May 14, 2015; you need to see the big price cuts out of Boston, New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles; and starting April 13, 2015, San Francisco to Europe. Many of you will find that it is cheaper to purchase two tickets versus one from your home airport. To see more details about our cheap European cities, please click on the link below.
By flying on the same flight, but on two different airline tickets, could reduce your travel costs by hundreds, maybe even thousands of dollars. Many of you may have to make one stop or more to travel to your final destination, but it will be worth it. The amount of savings will depend upon the time of the year you depart, and how many people are traveling in your party.
This technique of booking was something we introduced way back in 1982; when Best Fares was started. We called this method of booking airfares "split fares"; while some airlines frown upon this, it's perfectly legal. Sure you may have to do a little more work, but the savings can be well worth it!
In order to get the cheaper airfares you must buy one ticket from your home airport to the inexpensive USA gateway, then buy a roundtrip flight from the cheap USA gateway to Europe. In many cases, this is far cheaper than buying a roundtrip flight from your hometown to Europe. By breaking up the trip you save hundreds, and also get to see more of the world for less.

Summer Airfares Are On The Rise, But Not If You Act Fast
Yes folks, we have not made it past Spring Break 2015. Nevertheless today, we want to talk about peak summer US travel. We are not yet seeing any fares from Southwest Airlines for summer travel. Currently, Southwest is only taking reservations thru June 5, 2015. Even so, last summer, Southwest summer airfares were not cheap.
If you’re lucky to be in a big metropolitan market with many nonstop options, expect to pay more for those premium nonstop flights. Today, when we did a quick glance across the USA, we found such a variety of airfares, especially when you had a choice of nonstop versus one-stop. It was not uncommon to find airfares $150 to $200 higher for non-stops than one-stops.
Here’s how we see it right now, for travel between January 5 thru March 5, 2015, you will probably find the cheapest airfares between the big metropolitan cities and Florida.
Between March 6 through April 20 expect to see much higher airfares. This is due to Spring Break and Easter, which falls on April 5, 2015 this year.
Between April 21 thru June 5, we should see another round of cheaper airfares, but not as low as what will get in the first two months of 2015.
From June 5 thru August 24, 2015, this time period will be considered peak summer, and you should expect the airlines to offer “refinance your home” priced airfares. However, today we have some blowout summer airfares, but you have to act fast.
During August 25 thru November 17 and December 2 thru December 17, 2015, we expect to see lower...much lower airfares than the summer. We also expect Southwest Airlines to do a “Blow Out” sale for the fall time period somewhere around the week of June 9, 2015.
Another reason we think you should book your summer airfares early is it will end up costing you extra money if you are travel with a family of four. For example, American Airlines' 737-800 aircraft has 3 by 3 seating. There are usually 29 rows of seats. If you wanted to get four seats together you would probably need to sit in either Rows 25, 26, 27, 28, or 29. The rest of planes, even right now, are only allowing you to reserve either middle seats only or premium seats which you must pay extra. So flyer beware...if you are traveling this summer, you have some tough decisions to make if you want to fly for less.
Check out some sample airfares we priced around the USA for peak summer travel. As you can see, choosing one-stop over nonstop may be your ticket to savings this summer.
