Timing Is Everything


I've been pricing round-trip flights to London in June at $800 and up online the past few weeks. This weekend the fare dropped to $600 and I grabbed it. Of course $200 hardly gets one through a day in London anymore, given the current exchange rate! But I'll take the savings nonetheless.

I've pretty much become my own travel agent the last few years, thanks to the Internet. I do recommend signing up for alert emails from airlines and especially from Airfarewatchdog.com. It was such an alert notice from Expedia that alerted me of a $27 airfare savings (which turned out to be almost ten times that!) this weekend.

My plan in June is to use London as a launching point on the low-cost European carriers to see Scandanavia, come back for a bit of Wimbledon, and then head right home for summer school.
