Donít let the airline take advantage of you when you fly. If you are delayed because of the airline or suspect that it was the airlines fault, there is a web site that can help. Here is the link: http://www.getairhelp.com/us. They take a 25% cut of whatever they can recover from the airline. If they recover nothing, you are not charged. My neighbor gave me another website to search for airline travel: http://matrix.itasoftware.com/

Back by popular demand and just in time for those spring break airline tickets - actually my wife suggested it. When you search for airline tickets on line, the web site that your viewing leaves a "cookie" (electronic tag) on your computer with the pricing information. If you return to that web site at a later date, your computer tells that web site that you are a returning viewer. I many cases that price will go up because they know you are interested. So, if you are seriously looking, use a different browser. If you used, Internet Explorer, switch to Chrome or Firefox. Advanced users can clear cookies to accomplish the same thing. Alternate plan, use a different computer. The sweet spot for purchasing a ticket is six weeks out. However, the airlines are all using advanced algorithms to price individual flights. You can expect changes as the number of passengers on that flight increase. Remember Southwest and AirTrans do not participate in web rakes. Rakes comb the intenet in search of airline fares. Those would be Kayak, Expedia, Travelocity, etc. To gain access to Southwest, AirTrans, and other discount airlines, etc go to their individual websites and use the same rules above. Warning: Spirit Airlines has the worst customer service score ever awarded by Consumers Report. Example: show up at the counter with a normal carry-on not prepaid on-line, expect to pay $100!!! They have even more surprises.

Your driving in the US and you need a place to stay tonight. Try the updated phone app - Hotels Tonight. It will give you availability in your area and give you the name of the Hotel as well as the spot price. I normally use the Hotwire App but you never know the exact hotel just the rating. Last fall, we booked a very nice room at the Sands Casino in Reno for $16 per night on Hotwire.

Air Tran flight from Cabo to Orange County

Post by dean on Wed Jun 06, 2012 7:15 am

The new Air Tran flight from Cabo to Orange County (John Wayne) leaves out of terminal #1 in Los Cabos. Prices pretty comparable to the Cabo/LA round, but no comparison to the service offered by Alaska.

For very well priced airplane tickets, we recommend checking & buying
online:
www.aeromexico.com.mx E.g. Round trip Mex City to SJD $2,650 pesos per person including taxes (around $210 USD).
www.volaris.com.mx offer good prices to Baja C. Sur.
www.interjet.com.mx has good prices but they don't fly to Baja C. Sur
www.despegar.com.mx (in Spanish displays low cost options with different
airlines)
www.interjet.com.mx
