Urgent: Should I buy this airfare?

found the following rate on fly Europe for SFO to ROM and ROM to SFO for the fall (October): $570 + 115 taxes. Originally we had wished to return from Venice but I'm getting really scared about how high the fares seem... The fare I found open jaw from Venice on the same dates was almost $400 higher. Should I buy this fare??? Do you think if I wait I might ever get a fare SFO-ROM-VCE_SFO close to this? I know you aren't psychic so best guesses are fine. For you experienced fall travelers, am I crazy to think that I can get something close to that price for a return from venice or should I just forget that idea and train it back to Rome?? THANK YOU SO MUCH For any quick responses... I've got the page held and I'm ready to buy if you guys think I should do it.

Kimberly: That fare you found sounds like a good one. If you still want to check around, I would suggest contacting Artisan Travel, located right there in SF, at 369 Pine Street, Suite 222, San Francisco, CA 94104
www.artisantravel.com (1-800-994-4370) or you can email Barbara at [email protected], she was very helpful and replied quickly. I just bought a ticket from them that priced $500 less than United Airlines quoted me for the exact routing.

Also, try Economytravel.com (1-888-222-2110), their prices were even lower than Artisan Travel (by $100)! However they couldn't offer me the same routing as my daughter's mileage plus seat I was trying to match with on UA.

Kimberly,

I just tried a fare for you using the dates Oct 14 and Oct 21 from SFO to Rom and back through Venice on airtravel.net. They had an available fare for $828 including all taxes. Don't know if that is cheap enough for you to use Venice.

Hi reed,

That's a pretty good price.

Just wanted to thank everyone for the advice. I grabbed the 3 tickets for Oct 5-Nov 1 and I'm just going to be happy with it. Sure... maybe something better will come along but what the heck: I'm going to Italy!!!

Again, thanks so much!
Kimberly
