Going back sooner than expected

Travel Forums North America Going back sooner than expected

1. Posted by jjeremi32 (Budding Member 2 posts) 42w Star this if you like it!

I’m in Costa Rica right now for a vacation. The initial plan was to stay here for a month, but because of some family emergency, I need to cut my trip short. I called the travel agency where I got my ticket from and they said they couldn’t rebook my ticket because of the itinerary I chose. I don’t know what to do.

My parents would be very disappointed if I don’t go back to Chicago soon. I already feel bad that my brother is still in a foreign matchmaking tour outside the country and can’t come home. At least me being there could compensate for my brother’s absence.

I need help for getting last minute tickets out of Costa Rica. I don’t mind getting connecting flights or going to another city. I’m in San Jose right now.

Looking. But I imagine I'm doing the same thing you are. You could just go to SJO and fly standby.

EDIT:
Got a Jet Blue Flight through Ft Lauderdale for $415. Shocking last minute price.
Another, same routing, from Sprit Airlines. $426 and pretty expedient.

Good luck.

Yep, still looking for the best price. But $400+ seems to be the standard price for last minute flights. Thanks for the help!

Anyway you could contact the airline and rebook with them directly? Sometimes you can get lucky going through the airline.

Another random mention of romance tours I notice.

Yeah, oh so subtly done...

I am not disputing you fine gentlemen. You have vast experience with this....but that's a VERY oblique reference....To what end would one sneak it in the middle of a conversation about something else entirely?

That's what I'm wondering. I don't know enough about search algorithms to see how it advances them but there is a clear pattern of mentions of that subject in unconnected subjects, so many that they can't all be coincidental. If any individual first time poster came back with a reply to the advice given then I'd be happy to call him genuine, but not all of them.
