    Planes To Vegas

    Do any of you know how to get great plane fares to Las Vegas?
    What Travel Websites offer the best rates?
    I know they're out there, because about 2 weeks ago I actually (accidently) wandered upon a Round-trip ticket for $194.00
    Now I'm just sick for not jumping on that!!
    I would have flown home overnight (Redeye), but that doesn't matter!
    I wasn't quite ready to commit to a non-refundable ticket at that time, but now I am!
    Any Advice?

    I had heard that Tuesdays & Wednesday were the best days to purchase tickets, but as far as plane fares go, the lowest I've seen today is $400.00 & up.
    That's a BIG OUCH compared to $194.00 (am I screwed?)

    I wanna leave sometime near the end of August and return After Labor Day...
    Any tips? I would certainly appreciate it!
    I wanna go so bad & when I do.... my butt will ride the X-Scream on Top of the Stratosphere Tower!!
    I do NOT need accommodations... that's all taken care of
    I just need a ride (a plane ride & a thrill ride for dessert)

    Thanks!

    BoBofan, check your PM box; I saw a heck of a deal this morning and am passing it on to you.

    BoBoFan, if your dates are flexible, try the month-long search at ITA Software - Solving the Travel Industry's Most Complex Problems - it'll give you all of the airlines' best fares for the entire month, for however long you'd like to stay.

    Re: Planes To Vegas

    Thank you both so much! I'm gonna check into both of your suggestions and yes, my dates are very flexible! I had a feeling if I posted this thread that I would get some great information and indeed I have.
    Keep those suggestions coming. I wanna explore every possibility.

    This thread has a lot of great info in it - not necessarily for travel to Las Vegas - but great info nonetheless.

    I don't think I would book a flight on Northwest. Until they get things ironed out.

    Call your local AAA too, my friend used to work there and often they would have good deals. I don't think you have to be a member either.

    In our trips to Vegas (though I'm sure this holds for anywhere), my trick was usually just to keep watching over time-- the fares could vary dramatically. Though, once I found something good, I'd jump on it, since no telling how long it would last. We usually went with SW and America West since they usually had the best rates plus non-stops out of Orlando and Tampa.

    Have fun!! Hard not to LOVE Vegas!

    For rental cars, btw, sometimes we'd find decent codes here- Rental Codes.com - Car Rental Coupon Code Source - Avis, Budget BCD, Dollar, National, Thrifty & Enterprise.
