Frantic Ticket Purchase Upends Itinerary ... No Open Jaw -

Jump to last reply

So..... as is my typical problem... I eye the tickets, see some good prices, start to plan and while still figuring out the order of things (Start in Barcelona or Madrid? Start in Paris and end in Madrid? Wait when can husband get off work? Wait our favorite apartment isn't available, maybe if we twist these dates it can work, etc etc etc...) then I note tickets start to creep up, but prices are still reasonable with some flexibility on timing. THEN TODAY My preferred itineraries jumped several hundred dollars (to $1500++++ vs $950-$1100).... on multiple routes and days.

SO I left a meeting, went to the lobby and just bough 5 tickets in and out of Paris (for $1100) June 8 - July 7. Sadly my husband can only half the time ....

So now I'm in and out of Paris. Would you rather... land in Paris from transatlantic flight and take another flight to Madrid (or maybe Barcelona)..... OR start off in Paris and then fly back the day of night before a transatlantic flight.

Still just KICKING myself for not pulling the trigger earlier.....
