Open jaw or Round trip?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! My daughters and I are going to visit Munich, Venice, Nice and either Colmar for a couple of days where our relatives are from, or maybe Amalfi. We have been to Europe once before, and when we went last time we flew round trip to Paris. Our last stop at that time was Florence. When our trip was over, we flew a budget airline back to Paris and then caught a flight home to New York. I am an avid reader and follower of Rick Steves travel books. The thing is, he always says that its best to fly "open jaw" which would be great because of the multiple itineraries. However Rick says its cheaper to fly that way. I have checked with travelocity and even directly with different airlines and they all were much more expensive to fly into one city and out of another. Does anyone know why Rick Steves says its cheaper when I have consistently found it more expensive to fly that way? Am I missing something or could Rick Steves possibly be wrong about flying open jaw? Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you!
