xxxxxxx has indicated that this thread is about Spain

A couple of weeks ago I was looking around at some airfare sights (expedia, travelocity, etc) to get an idea of how much a ticket to Spain will cost me in October. The cheapest I could find was $630. I was told that if I wait until closer to my trip, the airlines will know how much demand there is and will probably drop the costs. Just now, however, I noticed most flights $800 and up. For those of you that have experience with this, do you think prices will drop again? Is it bad judgement to wait until mid-late August to book a flight for October?

try but in terms of whether the price will drop again it's all about the demand!!! you might get a last minute deal you never know. you could also fly directly to the UK then get a dirt cheap flight to spain via if your flexible you can get cheap flights from Canada to scotland with and then onto Spain. A wee bit roundabout but could save you a bit!

Happy wandering

I agree with Scotsman.

From the US it is cheap to fly to London . spend a nite there and take easyjet to Spain. Whenever I travel from the US to Europe i always do this. If you go into Eastern Europe - Amsterdam is the better choice. 800 for October is way to high a price and from my experience - they only go up in price.

Flying into London and then catching a cheap flight to Madrid sounds good. I found some flights to London for around US$500 and up. The flights straight to Madrid have been between $650-800. But then, tonight, Iberia posted 2 flights to Madrid for $550. Is this price too good to pass up? Am I being unreasonable to hope for even less? :)

Go for the $550 price dude, that's a pretty good price for a direct flight from US to Madrid

you wont find much cheaper. and unless you find somethin for 300 US to London - the USA-London-Spain idea isnt worth it.
under 6 bills to Spain from US is great.

After a week of making excuses as to why i should not go to Spain, I finally sucked it up and bought the plane ticket! After taxes and the 'paper ticket' fee, it ended up at $575. It just seemed like such a huge commitment, and I'm still a bit scared to be going. But I do this before every trip, and every time i have an amazing trip and can't imagine how i ever questioned going. I'll see you in Spain... 4 1/2 months!
