Michelle Posted February 2, 2007 Share Posted February 2, 2007 If you're thinking of coming to VV07, now is the time to start looking for flights. The airlines have frequent price wars, so if you watch for them there are often exceptional deals to be had. Here are a few links for cheap airfare:http://www.travelocity.comThis is my personal favorite. Register on this site, add Portland to your fare watcher alerts, and travelocity will email you when the fare goes down. If your travel dates are flexible, you can save a bunch of cash. (Last year I flew round-trip to Connecticut from Houston for $115/person, as an example.)http://www.expedia.comAnother site, which is very similar. I usually don't find anything that's a huge savings from travelocity, but it's worth looking at.http://www.orbitz.comOrbitz has a really cool search feature, and I haven't used it in a while but I believe you can set it up to notify you by email when the fare changes. http://www.studentuniverse.com/Cheap tickets for college students and faculty. That's at least one-fourth of us, it seems. http://www.cheaptickets.com/I haven't used this site, but it also appears to have a "price alerts" feature. **note** For any of the above sites, after you've found a fare you like, be sure to check the same itinerary on that particular airline's website. It's often a few dollars cheaper, and most airlines offer bonus frequent flier miles for booking online. http://www.hotwire.comhttp://www.priceline.comIf you're OK with choosing your travel dates but not your flight times, hotwire and priceline can save some $$. http://www.southwest.comTravelocity, expedia, and most of the others don't search Southwest's database, as far as I can tell, so be sure to search here too. Other modes of travel:http://www.amtrak.comAmtrak has a station in Portland. http://www.greyhound.comIf you have a bit of free time, a bus can be a lot cheaper than flying and allow more nap time than driving. If anyone has any personal favorites travel sites that I didn't mention... let me know and I'll add them to the list. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
