I Should Know This, But . . .

Jump to last reply

I haven't been to London for seven years, and I am aware of the rise in airfare, but I've got sticker shock today. I live in Louisville, KY, and want to go to London on June 24 (or that week) for five nights, travel by train to York for one night, go on by train to Edinburgh for seven nights, and return to Louisville from Edinburgh on July 8 (or whatever).

From Louisville, the fares are beginning around $1,450 pp. I checked other airports thinking we could depart from someplace on the East Coast since it was my intention to use my Capital One miles (121,500 right now), which requires 100 times the ticket amount, and just buy a ticket to the departing airport. However, from JFK on Travelocity the cheapest fare is $1,400. The cheapest I found was from Chicago at about $1,350.

I guess I'm just crying on your shoulders, but does anyone have any ideas?

Also, please refresh my memory of when I should buy train tickets. I feel like a newbie! At least we know how to look for hotels.
