Now, I normally recommend trying to fly during the child’s naptime. But this time the price was too high. Plus, now that our son is 4, he doesn’t nap. The flights during normal day hours were close to $1200. each! We checked early morning flights, (since the boy is an early riser anyway, and we’re going to Disney -so who can sleep the night before that?) and they were $253! Um, yeah, I’ll get on the plane at 7am to save nearly a thousand dollars.
So, check those off-times for flights. It could just make a trip affordable after all.
If you’re headed somewhere warm, check out this link from Travelocity:
If you can fly on non-peak days, such as Tuesdays or Wednesdays, you can often save money that way. Many airlines offer special sale fares that are only valid on these non-peak days, so be certain to check those out.

Great site. Love the comments here … always good information and interaction. I found a great website I want to share that saved me a lot of money on airfaire and hotels. http://lowcostairfare.net Great low-cost deals and gives a lot of rich details, reviews, pictures, ratings, etc. on the hotels. Searches several discount tarvel search engines to get you the best price. Friend turned me onto this several months back … been using it ever since. I typically save an extra 20-65% on airfare and lodging vs. other discount sites I have tried. Got $99 plane tickets and $65 a night hotel that was gorgeous and had a beautiful pool.
