Great Airfare Deals on Thousands of Routes!
If you are looking to travel around Christmas or New Years, today is a great day to book! Southwest has put over 1,000 routes on sale, starting as low as $59 One-Way, but it ends today! Of course, not to be outdone (but more quietly), AirTran , American, Continental and several other carriers have all matched the sale with almost identical fares of their own (some even lower).
These special fares are valid for travel between December 13 and January 5. When comparing airlines, be sure to compare relevant fees to make sure you are getting the best deal (see price comparison tip below).
Note: To get the special pricing, you will need to book by
Today ~ Monday, October 17, 2011.
How: Go to Southwest’s sale and compare prices for the destination and dates of interest. Seats and availability are limited, so being flexible with your travel dates and times will likely help you find the lowest fares as you comparison shop.
When: Special fares are good for travel for flights 12/13/2011-1/5/2012 with black out dates of December 23, 26, & 30 and January 2 & 3. You must book by Monday, October 17, 2011, 11:59 PST to get the special fare. Book as soon as possible for best travel dates and options.
Price comparison tip: When comparing different carriers, be sure to add in relevant fees when trying to get the lowest overall cost. Airline fees like checked baggage and food can quickly add-up if you aren’t careful!

Combining a deeply discounted 4-5 star Hotel Deal through them with one of the low airline fares could make for a luxurious, but cheap family Christmas vacation get-away!
Enjoy and Share! :)
