Site for airfare for last minute emergency travel?

Jump to last reply

I've found out yesterday that one of my best friends has died.

Her funeral is Tuesday in Tobago, and I would really like to be able to attend, however because I am not a relative, I don't qualify for bereavement fares, and what I am finding is fares from $950-1400 RT pp.

I would be going from either RDU or GSO (Raleigh or Greensboro) to (ideally) Tobago, but I have also been looking at flying into Trinidad, Grenada or Barbados, and then on to Tobago from there. But fares are still ranging from close to $1,000 and on up, without factoring in the flight(s) on from those locations.

I know that the closer you are to trip date, the higher fares are, but does anyone know of a consolidator who sells last minute availability - especially Caribbean travel? I don't care if it is a red eye or overnight flight, I would just like to be able to get there and back.

Thank you.
