Taking Advantage of Hot Fares

A favorite trick of Travelzoo Deal Experts who don’t live on a coast is to look for hot fares to the places they want to go … that don’t depart from their home airports. It’s not uncommon to hear of a Travelzoo employee based in Chicago leaving from Miami to take advantage of a good deal. Or maybe it’s not even as far as Miami. This week the Top 20 list featured nonstop flights to Vegas from Milwaukee for $119 each way. From downtown Chicago, it’s less than two hours to General Mitchell International Airport by car and train.

And such is the case with a fare like this peak-season Paris offer from OpenSkies, an all business-class airline. For $649 each way, flights depart from Washington, D.C., as well as New York City in July. Another fare featured in Top 20 this week.

Often times an international fare sale can be paired with a domestic one. It all comes down to doing your research -- and being flexible.

To take advantage of this, search for your desired city, state or country on Travelzoo’s homepage. Or continue your search at Fly.com.
