I am helping my cousin plan her trip for next April and I am finding that airfares are insanely expensive for the week she is going. She is going to be going during the week of school vacation up here (April 19-April 26) so I know it is a busy time with lots of New Englanders headed to visit the mouse.
I’ve never taken a trip at school vacation time myself and wondered if any other MBers had gone during April Vacation and what your experiences were with airfares. I had been thinking that the fares would go down as we get closer but when checking available seats on some of the flights, there seem to be a lot of already sold seats so I am not sure. The cheapest flights I’ve found so far are in the $500-$600 range which is crazy for flying Boston to Orlando.
Anyone have any experiences with airfare this time of year?
