Bumping if it helps anyone. Wish I could take advantage of it :(
taxes brings it to 445US... I saw Charter (Air Transat I think) for 99+tax come to 363CAD yesterday... but i think that's for travel next week... if you can pick up and go quickly, take a look around, maybe it's still available...
stay tuned and I may have some interesting info for Canadians later today... Want to test it myself and see if it actually works before I post (and I don't want to jinx it :) )
ya thanks BP you tease!
Chelle...bring it on girl!
Those are the prices I could use
Okay... as some of you have seen, I've booked (YAY)... now what i found is probably not really as exciting to anyone else other than me as I've been sitting looking at dropping $1800 on flights alone for the past 3 months... (a little bit of an ouch) so any savings i could find i have been overjoyed with :) so, here it goes....
if you kayak (or any similar search engine) a flight to Kingston (I didn't try MBJ) for dates that are outside of this specific deal... you will get a quote of $xxx in USD, now, booking thru flightcentre.ca i got a rate that is essentially the SAME (including their booking fee), in CAD... this saved me more than $100 for my party of 3....
it doesn't work for this particular special mentioned above... but for my dates (July 22 to Aug 12) but i got a rate of $1346 CAD for my party of 3 (me and 2 kids), where as booking from the AJ site directly (or any other site that would offer the flight) it was 1348US... (this isn't too much more than the special rate as the kids are billed at the same rate)... (oh, you will find that your flights will actually be about $10 cheaper than initally quoted once you get to the final screen, the taxes are infact less than they originally state... for once the taxes go down not up!)
i'm not sure if this is just a good deal Flightscentre has with AJ, or if it is a conversion (or lack there of) issue, or just a fluke in the system... but it is was a little bit of savings i though i'd pass on to Canadians in hopes that it might save someone else a bit of cash!!
i will keep my eyes open for deals as i'm one of those regret shoppers (constantly looking after i bought something to see if i should be punching myself in the gut about how much I've speant!!)
