What City In Florida Will Your Family Explore This Spring Or Summer. Our Florida Fly Drive Is Back!
Wow. oh wow our Dinah Shore special fly drive is back! Our Florida special is back for spring and early summer travel. This is a great deal for a family of four heading to Florida when school lets out in June. How this offer works is that you pick up a car in Florida, but you must return it outside of the state of Florida.
The daily car rental rate for a full size car can be as little as $10 a day plus taxes. Keep in mind some car rental taxes and fees are highway robbery. Some of the major car rental companies will even let you drive your car all the way to the West Coast. That's why we call this our Dinah Shore special from her 1952 commercial song "See the USA in your Chevrolet!
Let me give you an idea of how frugal of a getaway this deal can be this spring or early summer for a family of four. During April and May on select dates Southwest Airlines is selling airfares with all taxes flying nonstop from Dallas to Ft. Lauderdale for only $49 one-way. Airfare for a family of four comes to a total of $196. We have several car rental companies that allow you to take advantage of this offer. We priced a full size car being picked up on April 14 in Ft. Lauderdale, and returning it one week later, on April 21 in Dallas. The total for the seven day car rental was $139. So now the total cost of four one-way airfares, and a one week car rental comes to $335.
We priced a seven day car rental both picking up and dropping off in Ft. Lauderdale the same week from the same company. Avis wants $491 with all taxes included for the exact same full size car rental. What is amazing is with our deal you get your airplane tickets and car rental for $156 less than the car rental alone.
This is one great way to see a little bit of America this year, and even better news; you're not putting all that mileage on your own car! Some of the rental car companies are allowing you to keep the car for up to 21 days for the same low daily rate.

First Class Airfares . Upgrade Your Spring Getaway For Less!
We have dozens of US cities and many destinations in which you can fly in first class at major price reductions. Some of you who are trying to book preferred seats to get more leg room, or want to check two or three bags for a fee, may find that flying in first class is cheaper than flying coach.
When you fly first class, you receive many perks. Some of the perks that you will receive will be that you are first on and first off the airplane, two by two seating with no middle seat, up to six inches more of leg room, wider seats, and on some flights depending on distance a free meal or snack, and on some carrier's premium entertainment. You also get up to three checked bags included. And we are saving the best for last; why not start the party off right with free adult beverages. Oh yeah baby, this deal is looking good!
When we priced Dallas to New York City departing May 6, and returning May 13 on American Airlines the coach airfare is a bargain at $235 roundtrip. However, if you want more leg room Main Cabin Extra would cost you another $120 roundtrip. Now your total ticket has jumped up to $355 roundtrip. If you also want to check two bags that's another $120; your ticket price is now $475 total.
However, on Bestfares.com for the exact same dates we have seven different nonstop flights to New York City's LaGuardia for only $427 roundtrip for confirmed first class.

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!
