cheap orlando flights?

Any tips on where to find cheaper flights to Orlando from Philadelphia or Newark, NJ -besides priceline- during the peak spring break week of Apr 8th - Apr 14? Expedia and Orbitz are both showing pretty much $300+ flights.

Are you using Travelocity's Fare Watch service? That will give you an idea of the lowest fare available to a particular location. When you see a good fare, always check the airline's website - you may save the $5 - $10 service fee you find using expedia, orbitz, etc.

Use the +/- 1 - 3 daysw function to see if you'll save money by changing your schedule a bit.

If you see a cheap fare, jump on it right away - they go fast.

kayak.com & sidestep.com sometimes turn up some deals that the others don't show.

Is United one of your airline options? If so, there are coupons in the shiny pages of the Entertainment / Gold C book - at least there are in my entertainment book.

With as close to Spring break as it is, I am surprised there are even flights available. During a period when the demand is so high, why would airlines be discounting? If the fares you quoted are not much less than full refundable fare I'd purchase full fare now - if you really wish to go - and rebook later SHOULD discounts come up.

Were you planning on renting a car in Orlando? If so, look into flights into Daytona or Melbourne Florida. Either airport is an easy drive to Orlando and may have lower fares.

ajcolorado,
Do you happen to know what the coupon in the Entertainment book for United is for? Buy one get one or an amount off? Thanks for the info! Pam
