Europe Airfares - should I just bite the bullet?

Jump to last reply

I am booking an open jaw SFO-BUD-PRG-SFO in mid Oct. maybe I have missed the cheaper fares and should just bite the bullet....

The route I wantedUnited/Luftansa just went up from $1204 to$1224 the next morning as I went to book it. The other fare that I had been eyeing, Luftansa/Swiss is now $1322 up from
$1270 or so. There are cheaper fares but they require 2 stops or are not ideal times.

Do you think if I wait a few days - til mid week- that the airfares may drop or should I just deal with and book it. I know it's only $40 for 2, but I was hoping for lower fares!

I know that no one has a crystal ball but I often hear that airfares are cheaper when booking mid week. I usually do book mid week and don't look back, so really don't know if that is true.
