End Your Summer Right With A Great Snooze You Lose Airfare, Beat The Back To School Blues!
While the last minute getaways have doubled this week, and there are a few deals to be had for a last minute airfare; our super cheap advanced purchase Snooze You Lose airfares are like a diamond in the rough. This week we are seeing great airfares on short haul flights, as well as for coast to coast US travel for late summer and fall.
Some of the major US cities have a potential of dropping even more as we enter into late August and September.
Just remember the airlines have demanded exorbitant airfares for peak July and early August travel; which they also watched many of you dish out big bucks for these seats.
Let’s face facts, almost every school in America will be back in session in about 30 days, and airfares will drop as the demand for family travel disappears. Finally, travel for September thru November 18 will be deader than a door nail. The airlines still need to fill empty seats, and the only solution to that is to offer much lower airfares that you can't refuse.
Furthermore, we strongly suggest you use our flexible dates travel calendar when booking. This tool gives you many options and days of the week that you can travel at the BestFares. We suggest that you do two searches one week apart. For example, search our flexible dates calendar for travel September 16-23, and then compare the possibilities next to the week of September 23-30. By shifting your travel dates by just a few days you could save hundreds of dollars.
Check out this small sample of this weekend's Snooze You Lose fares for late summer and fall travel, but don’t just stop here. We have over 500 Snooze You Lose airfares to some destinations you would not even think about going, but if the price is right, then pack that bag!

Fares To Europe Drop Amid Crisis
Airfares to Europe for travel in about 30 days are tumbling downward compared to what you had to pay for peak July and August travel.
While most of you will see airfares between $500 to $700 cheaper, some US cities are having a fire sale on airfares to Europe. Some airfares during the next six months drop by as much as 50% off summer airfare prices.
One European city we expect to see big price drops will of course be Tel Aviv, Israel. Remember as long as the turmoil in Gaza continues the US government does not recommend travel to Israel. For Thanksgiving, we are finding airfares as far west as Los Angeles to Tel Aviv for as low as $819 roundtrip departing November 26, returning December 3, 2014. Boston to Tel Aviv is only $739 RT, from Chicago $779, and from Washington DC, its only $719 roundtrip to Tel Aviv for fall travel.
There are seven super low departure cities to Europe, which will be New York City (JFK), Newark (EWR), Boston (BOS), Washington DC (IAD), Chicago (ORD), Houston (IAH), and Los Angeles (LAX). Don't forget sometimes it may be cheaper to purchase two roundtrip tickets instead of one. By buying one ticket to a cheap US gateway city, and then buy a ticket from there to your European destination. By breaking up the trip you may pay less than buying a roundtrip flight to Europe from your home airport.
|Departure City||September 16-October16||November 16- December 16||January 16-February 16|
|Dallas to Dublin||$849||$790||$790|
|New York City to Milan||$679||$669||$669|
|Houston to Amsterdam||$952||$844||$809|
|Chicago to Istanbul||$899||$870||$819|
|Los Angeles to Athens||$979||$929||$919|
|Washington DC to Rome||$809||$751||$751|
|Boston to Budapest||$879||$719||$719|
|Newark to Johannesburg||$1,039||$969||$930|
If you have been waiting for a cheap airfare to fly to Europe, keep an open mind on the city you fly into, plus check all nearby US airports that may offer lower airfares to the same destination. For example, the fares out of Dallas to Europe can be anywhere between $250 to $500 per person higher than the airfares out of Houston to the same European destinations. So maybe a quick drive to Houston may be in your travel plans. Be sure to use our flexible dates travel calendar to help you find the BestFares.

The perks of flying first class are super hot. You get first on, first off privileges, up to 6 inches more of legroom, a large comfortable seat, you can check up to three bags weighing 50 lbs or less, meal service on longer flights, and of course, my favorite - free adult beverages, that could cost $7 each in coach.
