If you can, wait till the Wednesday before you are going to leave.
After 5 p.m. all the airlines and hotels start dropping rates for that weekend to try to fill up space.
where do you look for the deals? hotwire/priceline or directly on the airline/hotel websites?
Priceline was the same price as the airline, I even called the airline booking number and the lady said that what I thought was true that they do start discounting on Wed. evenings.
However, the Priceline tickets INCLUDED the airport fees and taxes making it a better deal than the airline.
It was with NWA and was a non-stop flight which you will usually have a lay-over with most discount fares.
I went back to the site a couple of times on Wed. before booking. The deal I took was not on the site at first. I waited and went back on later Wed. evening and there it was, so I jumped on it. Don't forget I got $60 hotel room at nice place in the Quarter on a weekend at bowl game (U of M vs. FAU). Taxes were included in that price as well.
I know this sounds like an ad, and no I don't work for Priceline.
I have used this system before, though.
Just tryin' to help!
