How to Find Cheap Airfare
Summer is the most expensive time to travel to Europe so finding cheap airfare is nearly impossible. While I've been able to fly from Chicago to the London for under $500 in the winter, I am lucky to find anything under $800-900 in the summer which really is frustrating because of course I want to be there when the weather is nice (although we all know the weather is rarely nice in England) and somewhat warm. I've searched tons of websites for the last 3 months looking for something decent and I found something just the other day so I thought I'd share. I'm sure this site has great deals available anywhere, not just from the US to the UK.
First, go to http://www.airlineconsolidator.com/infobook_fs.html Put your information in and see what comes up. A lot of the time it's "cack" as my fiancÚ would say but there's a little link towards the bottom of the page that what you're really looking for. Scroll down a bit and click where it says:
"If availability is not found or to scour the web for additional cheap international flights, please click here"
That is where the real treasures are to be found.
The trick is to be patient and try every day until something you like comes up. Some days the site doesn't work at all, others it's very slow (I've had to use the reload button a lot on some days) but I've used them before and they ARE reliable. Use your credit card and call the airline directly after you make your reservations to confirm them if you're nervous about it.
Also, they say it will cost usually between $200-300 if you want to make any last minute changes or cancel your flight. I've found if you call the airline directly instead of going through Airline Consolidator.com you'll get a better deal (around $100). Of course it's best to not change your flight at all...you can get deals at the last minute that are just as good.
Happy Flying and don't forget to join the mile high club!
