How far out did you book your flight?

Recommended Posts

The lowest prices I saw for our flights were the first few days that the flight was available. We booked a few weeks after that and it was about $50 more. I think we booked in January for our November wedding. Thank goodness we did because our $450 flight is now over $1000.

My wedding is in January 2010. We booked our flight in March 2009. I experienced a lot of difficulties finding out the rates for that far ahead. You have to find a good travel agent and hopefully he will work with you. Good luck

Just booked our flight last night! Wedding is July 7, 2010 so we're about 8 1/2 months out. We got a great deal out of our little Monterey airport, which is usually very expensive! So excited!!

Quick Question: Is this through travel agents that you were able to book your flights? Or just online, etc?

Our wedding is in May, and we are still waiting on our flights. We know we will be flying either the 8th to 15th or the 9th to 16th, however we don't have our flight schedules yet! Our travel agent told us we'd have them 300 days before our departure, we are now almost at 200 days and still nothing. I've looked on Air Transat's website and they don't have flights either. We are going through Signature Vacations. I'm beginning to worry that they won't have flights in May since Mexico is very slow right now.....

I try to work with a TA but they kept quoting me $300-450 more then the prices on the internet. So I finaly decide not to work with one, and just book our trip on Itravel2000. I also set up a website for guest, I'm pretty much my own TA lol
I got a good deal, because the day after I booked, the price went up $150. I count myself lucky, for booking early. On a normal vaca I would book 3 weeks before. Sometimes 1 week before!!

We've been at the TA today and were surprised to find out that we can book our flights and accommodation now for our wedding in Dec 10. I hope to get it booked in the next few weeks.

Wow $91 dollars with Southwest?!?

 

~I just visited Southwest's website and read that the will be booking for August starting December 17th.

We will probably wait until then, because you can beat the free checked bags!!!

My wedding is July 30, 2010 at Dreams Los Cabos but we are still checking around with different TAs for packages, etc. I learned yesterday at a local wedding show that Dreams is most definitely not a sell off property, so there won't likely be any "last minute deals". The price typically stays the same.
