How flexible (or, yes, how crazy) are you willing to be, to save money?


Here are some sample fares we have found in the past:


Atlanta, Georgia to Johannesburg, South Africa

Round trip is generally around $1600.

We found a round trip ticket from Chicago to Johannesburg for $960.

Added a round trip from Atlanta to Chicago for $150 for a total of $1110.

This involved booking two separate round trip tickets but the savings were about $500 per person.

Atlanta, Georgia to Riga, Latvia

This was a trip we booked for friends in the summer of 2014.  Riga is not a major city, it is expensive to get there, and not a lot of options are available.

We found a route only available on Finn Air.  They saved about $200 per person.

The itinerary was routed through New York City and they had to transfer airports from La Guardia to JFK during the layover.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Bogota, Colombia

We recently found this route for $88 one way.

The catch?  Hear this:

Fort Lauderdale – Charlotte – Miami – Bogota

We don’t get it either, but it was cheap enough to go through all that craziness!

Los Angeles, California – London, England

We can usually find a 20% savings on this popular route

We can help you find a great deal on airfare!

Please provide us the following information:

  • Origin & destination (are you willing to use nearby airports?)
  • Dates (are they flexible?)
  • Luggage (checked in or carry on only?)
  • Flexibility (are you open to the ideas described above?)
  • Frequent flyer (are you enrolled in any program & do you have miles?)


Also, do you feel like you would love to travel independently but don’t have time to actually plan your trip?
