Flight options.... There are
a lot of different options for you to purchase
tickets. You can go with the large corporations
like Expedia, Travelocity, Priceline and Orbitz.
They don't always have the best fares(that's
why I say to check around first) and are probably
not your best bet for customer service. They
can sell you tickets, hotel rooms and auto rentals,
but they probably won't be able to answer a
single question you have...that's what happens
when you're working with a robot.
option is to get a low fare to Europe and then
fly between European cities on the low-fare
airlines. You can get some good deals that way,
but remember- you'll want plenty of time between
flights because neither airline is responsible
for you missing a flight.(that translates to-
you may have to pay for a new flight or a hotel
which will wipe away any savings you may have-so
plan lots of time between flights). Another
problem with mixing flights could be the baggage
flights usually allow you 2 70-pound suitcases
plus carry on while the inter-European flights
allow only 20 kilos(24 pounds)- they usually
don't-but if they choose to make you pay for
your "excess weight" it could cost
more than the ticket and more than the money
you saved...so be careful with that. It can
save you a lot of money, but beware of the risks
and use your judgement.
past years I have had luck finding a low fare
to somewhere in Europe and then either taking
a train, flight or ferry to my final destination.
Two sites that can help are European
Flights and Eurail.
I don't have any info on ferries, but you can
probably do a Google search below....
away for the best fares, let me know what you
find and I'll try to advise you on your best
