Dear symbols

 

I need help finding cheap flights around the world. Hell, I would even go by boat somewhere.

 

Give me guidance.

Dear CIL.

 

this is my BASIC strategy:

 

come up with a list of places you would like to go

come up with a list of potential airports you can leave from

(try to include at least one that isn't super close to you but you can drive to or take a bus to)

 

then, spend some free time, i'd say about 10-15 minutes every few days doing a bunch of searches.

never search on the weekends, only weekdays, and try to do it in the morning

 

this will give you a good idea of what a typical price is for certain destinations, and the range

if there is one place you REALLY want to go, create a price alert.

i use http://www.kayak.com (international)

i generally try to fly southwest domestically.

 

then search and search.

eventually, you will see a price that gets you stoked. then you bite the bullet and hope you did well.

 

also, check out tripadvisor (or any travel site/mag) lists of best places or destinations on the rise and shit like that. i've gotten some good ideas and just spur of the moment found amazing fares to places i hadn't even considered (when i go to scandinavia in the fall, we are flying to Riga, Latvia for one day -i did it on a whim cuz i heard Riga is awesome.)

 

this strategy has worked for me MANY times

i'm hamstrung by things like overseas weddings - stuff that you cannot modify dates for

but i find that if you are flexible with dates, times, and long layovers, you can usually get something good.

 

flying has gotten more expensive in the past ten years.

i think a lot of it has to do with fuel prices.

 

but this is what i consider good for a round trip:

 

east coast to europe: $600

US to bangkok: $850

US to australia or new zealand: $900

US to japan or china: $800

east coast to mexico/caribbean: $300 - 450 depends on island

US to south america: $700

 

'

i have managed to land flights at or below those prices, i think that's decent.

 

you cannot check bags if you can help it.

i know that insane for many people, but it can add TONS of fees

it also means wherever you go if you are lugging shittons of baggage, public transit might no longer be an option, and the trip suddenly got a lot more expensive.

 

when you travel somewhere, bring energy bars and shop in grocery stores for food

research free things to do or times when museums have free admission when you go

get a pass for foreigners only, like a japan rail pass, before you go

stay in hostels if possible - many have private rooms that are just very small. use their kitchen.

 

i can usually factor in about $80/night for a place to sleep and $50 a day, but it can be done much cheaper. if you know someone, you are set. when i started traveling, i always stayed at someone's place. (thanks seven.13, TTBoy and Europe!)

 

if you are into boats, there are some websites that let you search last minute cruise cabins,

basically the rooms a ship hasn't sold right before they're leaving port.

if you are crazy flexible, i've heard you can get a cabin for as little as a couple hundred bucks for the whole trip. i hate boats though, so i'm not up on this.

cannot vouch for this site but check it out http://www.lastminutecruises.com/

 

if you have questions, let me know

dear cil/inj

 

you are welcome.

seriously, i hope it helps.

i've managed to alter the course of a few people's lives by inspiring them to travel, and it's one of the most satisfying things ever. people get happy and their minds usually open when they travel

 

also, i've read that when you are looking domestically, it's best to buy 6-8 weeks before your dates

overseas it's a little more unpredictable, but the best fares appear most often about 3 months before your preferred dates.

 

when you search, do that thing +/- 3 days on each end as well.

 

i don't do miles. but i do have a credit card that refunds 3% on travel

 

good luck

Dear !@#$%

 

Riga is very nice - great choice!

 

Check out the latvian riflemen monument - I really like this sculpture

museum of the occupation.

if you're bored you could get the train to Moijari beach. the suburban trains are pretty good.

 

drink aldaris beer. eat pelmeni (actually might be estonia but they'll have similar)

 

I can't advise you too much because when I was there last it was 2005.

 

If you go to Helsinki try the ferry to Tallinn.

 

the Baltic countries are great.

Dear Black

 

You wouldn't last pissing time in an accounting class you struck match------------the one thing they taught us was that the big picture is always maximum value------------so in that spirit take those 36 hours a week and spend them bleaching your skin ---------you might have a punchers chance in life as a result--------------
