Best Airfare?

I know this has been discussed until death....but......Anyone have any hints on flying from either Grand Rapids, MI, Detroit, or Chicago, on who is the cheapest flights? We have found a few for about $425 a piece, is that a good price or can I get better? Thanks!

Have you looked at worryfreevacations.com, funjet.com and adventuretours.com? I don't know if all of them fly from your area, but they all had good airfare prices (charters) for me (I'm in Dallas).

It really depends on WHEN you want to go. What dates are you looking at?

www.sidestep.com is my new "go-to" site. You will have to load their software, but I have found that they are consistently coming back to me with the best fares, and most comprehensive listings. But this is only for major airlines; no consolidators or charters.

ATA flys out of Chicago with some good fares sometimes. You just have to keep checking. I know they use Midway, much easier to negotiate than O'Hare. Good luck!

But be careful...ATA declared bankruptcy in October and I have one client who booked her own air for this April and they already cancelled her return flight home. They would get her TO Mexico but were very unwilling to help her find a way to get back home so she cancelled the air with ATA and booked with Northwest.

I use a site called vacationhotline.net for last minute air only. They list flights from Chicago,Detroit,Milwaukee,St. Louis, and sometimes Minneapolis. They also have some package deals.

As one ER Doc to another, try Sunship1.com, a new charter out of Midway or Rockford. I just returned from Playadise on this. It is essentially Ryan International Air, with some folks on board booked through Funjet. Check them both. Rockford has one small terminal and free parking. Enjoy!
