I appreciate any help you can give me. I have a US Military family stationed in Italy coming for a visit and need to find the cheapest flight as they are on a budget. Military flight is out for various reasons so they are coming commercial..... They are flying out of either Venice or Milan (whichever is cheaper) and flying into Louisville Kentucky (or Indianapolis, Cincinnatti, or Lexington Ky if they are cheaper) The dates are Departure from Italy June 16th (flexible by a couple days either way) and a return date of July 16th (flexible by several days after the 16th) They are flying with 1 Adult and 3 children ages 4,4, and 6. The cheapest I have been able to find is a flight into Cincinnati on British Airways for $690 per person which is alot for someone on a military salary. I would appreciate any and all help to get these fine people to Kentucky and back....I know its asking alot so if nobody has time I completely understand.

Hi all,

In a recent promotion on Facebook, BookIt.com was giving away 100 trips in 10 days. I was one of the winners. While they've verified that I have won via email, I don't have any of the details yet which they are sending via regular mail.

The prize was for a 5 night stay for two at the Barcelo Bavaro Beach, Adults-Only property. They are also including a $500 airfare credit. I assume that isn't per person but probably for the both of us so I'd likely have quite a bit of airfare left to pay for. I priced the absolutely cheapest airfare from Memphis to the destination at around $700. And I'm guessing the airfare has to be via BookIt which I have no idea if they will be charging more/less/etc. It really sounds like a great vacation but I'm unsure if paying $1000 or so for a prize is a great idea and debating it internally unfortunately. I mean that almost sounds more like a discount than a free trip. Hopefully I'm wrong or airfare is less than I'm thinking or something.

Anyway, just curious if anyone else has won a trip and what to expect...

Views: 1052 Replies: 7

I'd like to get some suggestions on a good and cheap vacation with the kids. We are in New Orleans. We usually drive to either Destin, FL or Orange Beach, AL. We have gone as far as Gatlinburg, TN and Panama City Beach. They are older - 13 and 15 so we can go further, I guess. Flights seem too expensive, although I would consider paying around $300 per ticket to go somewhere. Driving seems to be a more manageable thing, though. I've thought about even taking a train, just for the experience, but after the latest crash, not so sure.I'd like to show them some amazing and unusual places.
Thank you!

Basically we can leave on the Wednesday before and return on Sunday or Monday after.

We are looking for an all-inclusive, adults only(since this is our first trip together without our children) to some place south of the border. We are thinking anywhere from from Mexico, Dominican or a Caribbean Island. Most of the sites I have looked at only have air fair through October. When is the best time to book a trip like this to find the best deal at a above average(but not top dollar) resort? We aren't tied to any miles program, just looking for the best deal.

Per this yahoo article.

https://www.yahoo.com/travel/are-mistake-airfares-a-thing-of-the-past-dot-118645055657.html

If a consumer gets a 'mistake airfare' such as LAX to SYD for $100, the Government used to make the airlines suck it up.
Now as of 5/8 they will not force airlines to accept website errors.

https://www.yahoo.com/travel/are-mistake-airfares-a-thing-of-the-past-dot-118645055657.html

Hence they will be able to tack on extra fees after you buy the ticket../sigh


Now will airlines try to say that 'getting off early on your flight' is a 'mistake' and bill you afterwards?

This is probably a stupid question but I'm staying at the Staybridge Suites in Times Square (340 West 40th Street, New York City, NY 10018) and can get a really good deal on parking through Parking Panda which works out to $60 total for three days after a Groupon but the garage is .7 miles away from the hotel (670 W 43rd St, New York, NY 10036) in an area I've never been in before - west of Times Square on the water.

I've been to NYC numerous times and never had a problem with feeling unsafe but I've never been in this area so I'm hoping someone can let me know if they'd park here to save $100 or so. I'll be getting into the city around 9:00am and leaving a few days later around 6:00am.

This should be a direct like to the walking route on Google Maps

I along with 4 of my friends are going to London during the second half of May. We intend to spend 4 days sightseeing and are really confused with what would be the best way to do optimise our sightseeing experience ( we want to visit stonehenge too )?
Rent a car or take the bus tours?
If I rent a car then I am wondering as to what the scenario is with parking or how expensive is the parking ( I feel it is a very crowded city with LHS driving) ?
Lastly there are a number of bus tours and visit london passes. Has anyone tried them ? if yes, does anyone have some recommendation?
Thanks in advance.

We are going to the Canadian Rockies with six adults. I think we will have at least 6 full size pieces of luggage. We have reserved a full size SUV from Avis (something like a Tahoe) Will that provide adequate space for luggage. Does a mini van have more room for passengers and luggage?

Old time buddies coming and i am planning a w/e day trip to NYC. Need your help in doing it efficiently without burning my pocket.
We are total 3 guys and below are my thoughts.

1) Start early ad plan to be in NYC by 9 AM
2) Visit Liberty statue
3) Take Staten Island Ferry
4) Visit Central Park (Photo shoot)
5) Empire state??
6) Spend time at time Sq (What to)
7) Back to DC.

Concerns:
1) Tolls are really high from DC to NYC. Not sure what else would be the best and efficient way.
2) Not very familiar with NYC and heard parking cost Arm and leg there.
3) Would the above plan make me run around the city or it is efficient

Any tips would be appreciated.

Past trips have included Vegas, Texas and Florida. I am not a big traveller but I have this voucher from being bumped on a flight so I would like to use it to see a cool place.

Views: 5845 Replies: 7

Spirit Airlines is offering $69 roundtrip airfares to several destinations. The usual restrictions apply (only certain dates, etc.), but I was able to book FLL to ORD for the $69 (includes taxes but not baggage) and only adjust my dates by a day or two. The bad side is that you're on Spirit Airlines (eek!) and you have to pay for checked bags - the good side is that I'm going to see my daughter when I otherwise couldn't!

<![CDATA[Beware: Autoslash.com]]> http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/travel-discussion/1433087/ Rating: -7 Posted By: Lvscott
Views: 4349 Replies: 26

I made a car rental reservation and used my AMEX card to reserve it. I then entered the reservation into Autoslash.com. Two days later I get an email from Autoslash saying they found a cheaper rate by $12.

So I go to Autoslash.com and see it is the same car rental company with the exact same car, pick up location, dates, and times, but is $12 less. I try to make the new reservation but when I get to the end they didn't ask for my credit card and there is a small paragragh that reads:

"Why don't you want my credit card number?
Most rental companies don't require payment until you actually pickup your car. You'll need to present your credit card at the car rental counter, but we don't usually need your credit card number at this stage. So we didn't ask!"

As most of you know, in order to get the AMEX Car Rental Loss & Damage Insurance benefit that your AMEX card provides "you must both reserve and pay the full price of the rental with your card." (Bold part taken directly off the AMEX website).

I also tried to make the reservation directly through the car rental company website but it has the old rate that my original reservation was for. Apparently Autoslash works with these car rental companies which give them slightly lower rates to trick people into voiding their AMEX Car Rental Loss & Damage Insurance. Then they either have to pay the optional insurance fees once they get to the counter and find out they have no AMEX coverage, or pay for damage to the car. You think they were doing this for nothing? $12 less is not worth the risk of having to pay for damage to the car. It appears my Mastercard doesn't say I must reserve it with the card, just pay for it. I don't know about Visa.

You've been warned.

Booked 3 tickets from FAI to ATL for June 2015 at USD796 per ticket. This flight is delaying departure by 5 minutes. Delta sent me an email with a link to either confirm travel or cancel and request for refund. When I called them to switch to a different flight on the same day which is currently USD 701. They are willing to switch flights but not refunding the price difference.

The CSR says if I cancel and ask for a refund, there will 200 USD charge since it is a minor time change. Does any one have nay experience on this type of time change. I am hesitant to hit the refund button! My imtention is to switch to the other flight and save some money.

comments appreciated,

Hey Guys. I have a bunch of points on my Barclaycard Arrival Mastercard and I wanted to get a giftcard for a friends birthday with them. I was surprised to see that none of the major travel sites (Orbitz, Priceline, Expedia, etc) have gift cards. Is this true? Seems funny not to sell GCs as that locks people to your products but maybe there is a reason for it. The closest thing I could find was a Hotels.com giftcard, but I really wanted to give her the option of airfare or car rental too. I also see that you can get gift cards for specific airlines but again that locks her in. Thoughts?

I have booked a hotel in galloway as a backup but am wondering if staying at the boardwalk / bay area is worth it.

Any suggestions for saving money & enjoying frugally? Any itineary suggestions? Thanks.
