Hello All.

I was wondering if you folks know about this airline, South American Air Pass. Which ones are better than others? And how hard is it to get flights to the cities that you want?

I am planning to go to South America during Decemeber..

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

BS

Hi
Your first quiery looks like an airpass.
Try links,tools,destinations at top of this page and check out the various links.
Its very easy to get flights to all major cities but as you try to reach inaccessable areas the task gets harder and you would have to have access to a Lonely Planet South America guide book or put the town names in and do a google.
Try www.airtimetable.com and www.statravel.com
Good luck on your travels and have a great time.

Try contacting Taca, the Central American Airline which has a coupon style Latin Pass from South American Points through Central America up to Mexico points such as Cancun and Mexico City to return home http://www.taca.com/ and also check out Copa, the Panamanian based carrier http://www.copaair.com/ for Air Pass or Coupon type deals, a consolidator based in Colorado USA that deals only in Latin Travel is http://www.exitotravel.com/ and they assist customers online. As well you can bid or bargain for flights online:

Budget and Consolidated Airfares now available year round to Latin America from USA, Canada and European points (usually via the US)however Canadians now have the option of flying direct to Central America avoiding US transit hassles from Toronto via TACA and other carriers view: www.taca.com

  • Sky Auction

http://www.skyauction.com

The company claims to be the leading auction site for travel-related purchases. It basically buys and sells deeply discounted airline tickets, hotel rooms and vacation packages directly, with no middleman. This gives you an advantage in that you always know whom you’re dealing with.

The site offers 10 categories of auctions, ranging from holiday travel to trips to Asia and Australia. It also offers a slew of deals you can buy outright without bidding.

How good are the prices? Bidding often starts at $1.

  • Bid4Vacations.com

http://www.bid4vacations.com

This company specializes in full vacation packages typically lasting five to seven days. The site makes it easy to find what you’re looking for by listing its packages in the categories of adventure, beach, cruises, family, gaming, golf, international, skiing and weekend getaways.

Bidding here, too, can start at $1. You can also find bargains that let you skip the bidding process. This week’s featured vacation deal, for example, is four nights in the Bahamas, for two people, for $239. Yes, it includes airfare from nine major cities in the US.

  • Priceline

http://www.priceline.com

This is the famous \"reverse auction\" site for cheap airfares.

Basically, you plug in where you are, and where you want to go and when. Then you list how much you’re willing to pay for the ticket. The software then scours its inventory of deals for one that matches.

If you get a hit, you do the deal right then and there.

I’ve heard raves about this site, although I have spoken with people who have had trouble finding a match. That usually means your price is too low. In general, try to find the best deal you can on the Internet, drop the price by 20 percent or so, and plug it into Priceline.

Chances are you could be pleasantly surprised.
Hope this helps you to bring down the cost of your next vacation.
