Air travel rates are out of control

4 days 20 hours ago #647616 by Deb Reardon
Miles are getting us less, getting charged for every bag, getting feed less and rates are just outrageous! 

Where are you buying your air travel at these days?  Expedia and Priceline were my go to, but I'm not seeing the deals that I once did.  Unless you book travel 5 years in advance! :huh:

Thank you, I've heard of this site.  However thought it was a gimmick because of its name.  I'll try it out!

Hey Deb, yeah I hear you.  My husband and I will book travel upwards of 9 months in advance.  We use Expedia and have no problems with the site or booking engine.  Their customer service has always been helpful.

Rates have gone up slowly since 9/11.  But if you book well in advance, you can do well with regards to rates.  I try Expedia first, then cross reference with rates found on Google, then directly with airline.

This is good for purchasing tickets on your notice.  Priceline, Orbits or Expedia are better when you plan things out.

Don't expect anything to change any time soon.  With continued fuel cost, things will only worsen.  Take advantage of the prices today.  Check out historic data -  https://www.farecompare.com/about/largest-database-of-current-and-historical-airfare/

When you schedule out your travel 6-9 months in advance,  you almost always get better rates.  If you need to book close (under a month), try those cheapoair sites.

Keep in mind you can schedule flights up to 331 days in advance if you are paying cash.
