As many of you know, I’ve been planning and posting here for a big trip with extended family in April. Unfortunately, we are now just under 2 months away and still don’t have airline tickets. The prices have been incredibly high and in the few situations where the prices dropped a bit, everyone was not on the same page about purchasing.
I feel that we have now reached the point where we have to seriously consider scrapping the whole trip. We are using DVC points, so cancelling at 31 days out is the absolute last minute we can cancel, but I am reluctant to wait that long. We have the bulk of our accommodations booked, but do need to make additional arrangements for the last night. I don’t want to be booking airfare at the last minute and then scrambling to find arrangements for that last night during peak season.
I guess I am wondering at what point to pull the plug? How long would you keep the trip plans in place while waiting for a more decent airfare?
Obviously, I am incredibly disappointed that this is even a possibility now, but it is what it is.
