    Arrow Help me find a good deal to get to New Orleans! :D

    Hey kids! I've never been on vacation, but some friends and I are going to rendezvous in NO from about Sept 23 to the 28th.

    I've never booked a flight anywhere (really, at 31.. sad) or dealt with a travel agency or whatevers.. i have the hotel picked out, but the flight is the costly part.

    Help a guy find a good deal.. where do i look? online sites?

    i'm totally clueless!

    Go to Expedia, Orbitz and Hotwire to find fares. Air fare is very competitive right now and you will probably do very well online.

    Are you willing to drive into Buffalo for your flight? You would probably take off another $200 from your fare.

    Unfortunatly, no license or car.. that's something else I've never done

    I looked into hitching a greyhound to barfallo but it would have been most of the savings anyway

    dont know how true this is, but the Avis rep said they have more problems with Priceline. giving false prices etc. Avis honored my reservation for a rental made through Priceline, but boy, that rep was NOT happy at all.

    the only bitch i had, was Avis told me 400 buck deposit for the car, and the Priceline site said 300. when i called before hand just to verify info, Avis couldnt give me any information because it was made through Priceline, and Priceline, ON THE PHONE, told me 250 dollar deposit. so, for me, never again through Priceline.

    I will suggest you try calling a travel agency...you live in Toronto
    and their are tons of agency to choose from...
    I find westjet to be quite accommodating, so you can check their
    website to see what they have...

    so far flights dont seem to be any less expensive now than a year or 2 ago. Ouch. STARTING from 600? ridiculous. I could go to cuba, all inclusive, for that.

    Check the airlines' sites individually, too. Just last night I was booking a flight and ended up buying directly from the airline site because expedia, hotwire, etc. were all several hundred dollars more. Paid $700 for 2 round trip tickets verses $1500 on the other sites. Crazy.

    ^It's not always that expensive though...most airlines have sales
    all the time...
    Example, a friend is going to Jamaica in August and on a regular basis
    the flight varies between 300-800 depending on the season but she found a ticket 2 weeks ago for 320$...
    If you are buying the ticket yourself you have to constantly check
    the airline you are interested in taking...or when you talk to the
    travel agency they can hook you up with a deal too...
    Also, depending on the airline prices vary...

    Hrm. a trip to the travel agency will most likely be a must.

    ridiculous though.. flight out of toronto 600 bucks.. flight out of buffalo? 195.

    stupid border.
