Ok, hold on: before anyone freaks out. I booked my flight. (Breathe out!)
I know, I am kind of a player to book about two weeks in advance, especially around Christmas time, but honestly, that has worked for me pretty well the last two times.
I found better roundtrip deals than if I had booked a couple of months ago.
Last year’s Christmas flight home was $580. This year’s flight is $750. That’s over $200 less than what I paid in September, remember? Not bad if you ask me, espcially with the current situation of the economy.
I mean, seriously you can’t beat the last minute prices.
Sure, I don’t have a nonstop flight, but two stopovers, but a) the time to change planes is pretty reasonable (no long layovers) and b) I don’t have to drive all the way out to LA or SF, but can catch the plane right here from Sacramento Airport, not even 20 minutes from my apartment.
That’s most convenient, if you ask me.
We’ll be leaving on the 16th, getting into DUS on the 17th, oh, and did I mention that I am going to stay for 3,5 weeks?! :)
So, let the countdown begin! 12 more days. Or actually, make that 11. Today is almost over. :)
