Cure Cabin Fever With A Sun & Fun Getaway, Over 600 Snooze You Lose Airfares On Sale!
I think there are many folks in America that have put out a hit on Punxsutawney Phil. On February 2, this little groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter. Boy, oh boy we wish he would have been wrong; with some cities in America receiving as much as 100 inches of snow. Cities in far south Texas are freezing, and now along the East Coast from Georgia northward are seeing freezing temperatures and ice. All we can do is stay in doors and get cabin fever.
With all this extra time on your hands, and if you have power in your home, this may be a great day to start poking around for a late winter or early spring getaway to thaw out! With Mardi Gras ending in New Orleans, Bourbon Street could be a great getaway. Hotel prices will drop dramatically and cheap airfares to New Orleans are out there to be had! How cheap you say? How about $82 roundtrip from Dallas, or $99 roundtrip from Chicago, or from New York City for $199 roundtrip.
If you live in Ohio or Western Pennsylvania, you can fly from Cleveland to Orlando for $199 roundtrip. This will give you a chance to warm up and see Mickey Mouse and Harry Potter! From Washington DC you can fly to Orlando for $189 RT, and from New York City you can get to sunny warm Orlando for $229 RT.
You may also want to consider flying into Tampa. I have driven many times from the Tampa airport to Downtown Disney, and it takes just over an hour. From Washington DC you can fly to Tampa for $159 RT, from Chicago $169 RT, from Philadelphia $184 RT, for Cleveland $199 RT, from Detroit $209 RT, and from Boston $215 roundtrip.
Just a reminder that Easter this year is on Sunday April 5, 2015. The bad news is many schools in America will take their spring break between March 27 thru April 6, 2015. During this time frame, airfares will be very high priced no matter where you live, or when you fly Airfares on the weekends during this time will be incredibly high. The good news is Easter comes early this year. We expect to see super hot airfares for travel between now and March 24, as well as between April 7 thru June 4, 2015.
Below are some sample airfares we found today on Bestfares.com for a cheap travel buck. Many of these discount airfares will not be available March 25 thru April 6, but if you can fly before or after you could get out of town this winter or spring on a frugal buck, and warm up your bones without breaking the bank!

Set Your Sights On Europe This Summer!
Oh yes folks, this is not a misprint! Actually, it's a sad story for USA residents who must pay as much as double or more to jet set to Europe during the peak June, July, and August travel period.
The good news is you have us to help you. We have an insider travel secret, and we think he major airlines are going to hate us for giving you the real skinny about airfares to Europe.
We have looked at three major airports in Canada, which are Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal; and that these airports offer nonstop and one-stop service to many European destinations. We have also added a smaller Canadian airport which is Windsor. This airport is about 12 miles from Detroit's airport. However, the airfare to Europe from Windsor can be up to 50% less than from Detroit for travel to the same destination. Folks that live in the Michigan area such as Saginaw, Grand Rapids, Ann Arbor, Kalamazoo, or Northern Ohio, such as Toledo, will save super big bucks, by just driving a few miles further to Windsor.
Here is a good example, from Detroit to Rome departing July 15, and returning July 22 on Delta the roundtrip airfare is $2,0279. However, Windsor to Rome is $1,081. That's not quite a $1,000 in savings, but $998 is close enough! Doesn't that just tick you off? That folks outside of the USA that live in Canada, and Europe can fly to America for so much less than we can fly to their countries.
Oh by the way, Rome to Detroit on the same dates is $1,149 roundtrip. This story reminds me of when I used to do the Larry King Show, he would say, "He's back, he's back the man the airlines love to hate"; and now you know why!
Now airfares to Canada are not a cheap ticket. However, many of you will still save $500 to $1,000 per person by flying to Canada. For example, if you live in Buffalo, New York or close by you could drive to a cheap gateway like Toronto. In the Northeast, Burlington, Vermont is about 75 miles from Montreal, and if you live on the West Coast, you can look at fares out of Vancouver or Toronto.
From San Francisco to Vancouver departing July 15, and returning July 22, the airfare is as low as $362 roundtrip. The airfare from Vancouver to Paris is $846 roundtrip, flying nonstop on Air France. The nonstop roundtrip airfare on American Airlines from San Francisco to Paris on the same dates is $1,811. United has a nonstop airfare of $1,731, but either way you save at least $523 roundtrip. Plus, as an added bonus, you can break up your trip in Vancouver, Toronto, or Montreal, which are all super great cities to spend a few days in, with no extra airfare cost.
Please note on Bestfares.com all airfares to Europe are priced in US Dollars. Check out some of the prices below for airfares to London departing from Canada.
Now go out and check your airfare from your hometown airport to Europe. If you are seeing skyway robbery airfares to Europe, consider flying to Canada first, then fly from Canada to Europe. By booking two roundtrip tickets versus one you could save several hundred dollars per person to Europe this summer!
