If you are going to head out of the cold north and into the sun this winter, why not take someone with you? You’ll get 50% off their seat when you buy yours!
Most of us don’t travel south alone (although I totally would if I could), so this deal is a good one. The discounted rate is on the pre-tax fare, which is actually the smaller of the portion you’d pay. The taxes are what eats you up. I always get irritated when $99 or less flights are advertised, only to find you’ll still have to pay over $300 in tax. But, we’ll take any discount where we can get it, since taxes are nothing we can avoid.
You’ll have to book by October 2nd and travel from November 1st to December 13th or January 7th to the 31st. Travel from February 1 to the 28th is still discounted, but only by 30%. I love travelling in the fall or early winter so November and December would be my pick. I find it is still hot enough down south that you’ll want to swim, and you aren’t quite yet into flu season, so your chance of having to miss a trip because of illness is reduced.
Bargainmoosers, where will you be heading this winter?
