I go to school in buffalo. I am trying to plan my spring break(second week of march) so i can visit my GF who is studying abroad in spain. I have been using kayak and i could get to dublin for 630 and to spain for 100. both round trip. so total 730 which isnt bad. I have only been on one plane before and have never been to Europe. I was wondering if there is any secrets to getting to europe for even cheaper.
i dont mind transfers, red eyes, etc... just trying to fly for as cheap as possible.
Well my girlfriend lives in Montreal(finishing up her Masters) so I have spent a fair bit of time on planes and booking flights. My advice is seeing that you know when you are going figure out what the average price is and what a decent deal is. For me average flight to Montreal is about $620(round trip) and with average seat sales I can usually get a flights for around $550. So what I do is knowing those two numbers as far in advance as possible I start looking at flights and wait till I can get the flight for the cheapest possible value. My next flight out cost me $500 and if I would have been more on the ball (hadn't paid my credit card off from Christmas yet) I could have got a ticket for $440. In my experience flights start to go up and stay up when you get within 3 weeks of the flight.
