August Air-Fare to Europe

Hi,

I'm wondering if anyone has ever had luck getting a good air-fare to Europe during the month of August.

We are traveling to Budapest in August, and I am finding air-fare to be on average about $1,000 from Washington-Dulles.

We generally like to travel either Spring or Fall, but unfortunately, this year, it has to be August. (Which I know is peak travel time for many; hence the high air-fare.)

Just wondering if we should go ahead and purchase tickets now, or if people have had luck in prices dropping the closer the date gets.

Thanks for your suggestions!

I think you would have found a much better deal if you booked it in January. I was going to go in late July, but had to change my mind as my family in Hungary was going to Prague then. I really wanted to see them too. I was finding fares for about $750.00 From Boston-Budapest in Late January. I wish you the best in finding a good fare now. But one never knows, maybe there will be a sale. Budapest is BEAUTIFUL! I'll be there in about seven weeks! Alice

I have absolutely no idea if this will work, but try looking at going from Dulles to London, and then find another flight to Budapest. It's a strategy I've read about on this forum.

Good luck

I found a terrific fare ($726 r/t) last week on orbitz.com from the U.S. West Coast to Amsterdam. The airline websites were quoting $1100 and up.

How would you get cheaply onward to Budapest from Amsterdam?

Try Lowestfare.com, they just announced really cheap summer fares to Europe.

Curious, leslie's question was a general one: "I'm wondering if anyone has ever had luck getting a good air-fare to Europe during the month of August." My point was that if I could find a low fare to Amsterdam on Orbitz during the summer high season, maybe she could find one to Budapest.
