Snooze You Lose Airfares For Spring And Summer Travel!
With Spring Break almost officially over this weekend, we should start seeing reasonable airfares for at least the next 6 to 8 weeks.
We are expecting a big airfare sale starting around June 10, 2014; on many routes, if you look today for flights that are up to 500 miles one-way, they are selling for $150 to $200 roundtrip. We expect that many of these airfares could drop to as low as $98 to $118 roundtrip during this upcoming sale period.
Furthermore, we already know airfares to Europe starting around August 25, 2014 will drop between $300 to $500 roundtrip compared to July airfares. To see our sample airfares to Europe, please click here.
Also, we do have over 300 Snooze You Lose airfares that require a 14 day advance purchase or more. Travel will be valid thru at least thru June 8, 2014. Some of these cheap airfares will extend into summer and even fall.
But, as we said earlier if you’re traveling between August 25 thru December 18, 2014 except Thanksgiving, you should hold off. We think you will not only find much lower airfares, but you also will be permitted to travel on many more days of the week at the lowest airfare. Check out today's Snooze You Lose airfares by clicking here.

Discounted First Class Airfares For Peak Summer Travel!
Finding the Bestfares for peak summer travel will be a tough ticket. Airfares will be higher compared to last summer. If you're seeking the best airfares, then you need to be flexible. No matter how we slice it, the two cheapest days of the week to travel are Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
For example, if you were to fly nonstop from Dallas to New York City's LaGuardia on either a Tuesday or Wednesday in peak July, you are facing a $319 roundtrip airfare. If you were to fly on a Saturday or Sunday for a one-week getaway, you would pay on average $449 roundtrip, per person. That's a $130 hit per person, or for a family of four, you are shelling out an extra $520 to travel on the weekend; and this in not even including what you will pay to check your bags.
Now here is the good news, if you are traveling as a family, or need to check several bags, our discounted first class airfares have dropped for peak summer. Our travel period has been extended throughout the summer through September 23, 2014.
For only a few dollars more than coach we think upgrading your summer trip, could save you some green in the long run in baggage fees. Plus, the adults get to partake in free adult beverages in first class, along with several other perks like priority boarding, more leg room, free food, and more!
While many airlines are offering upgraded coach seats with more leg room, these are the only seats on the plane that are you wider seats so there is more room for your butt. With all these free perks, I can now justify with a good conscience, why I should fly upfront this summer!
Below are a few examples of some of our first class airfares for summer travel. Remember, the cheapest days to travel will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
To/From St. Louis
|City||First Class Price Per Person, All Taxes||VS.||Airfare price after the sale ends||You save per person|
|New York City (LGA or JFK)||$409||$889||$480|
|Salt Lake City||$549||$1009||$460|
|West Palm Beach||$589||$1089||$500|

Cruise To Europe Cheaper Than You Can Fly.
'Tis the season to think about repositioning cruises. What in the world does that mean? Well, two times a year the cruise lines move their ships from the USA to Europe for their peak summer season.
The only problem I can see is you need at least two or three weeks off to take advantage of these European repositioning cruises, but the price is right. You can actually cruise to Europe cheaper than you can fly.
One of the cheapest cruises going to Europe is the Royal Caribbean Adventure of the Seas departing out of Miami on April 29, this is a 14-day cruise. You also get several destination stops along the way including the Bahamas, Puerto Rico, and St. Maarten in the Caribbean. After cruising you arrive in London a great city loaded with great pubs, history, castles, and nightlife.
Want to see more repositioning cruise options, check out these below. There are over 40 transatlantic cruises to choose from departing from the USA to Europe. Most of these cruises depart the USA between April and May.
