Airline Tickets

September 21st, 2011 at 04:55 pm

We will likely have spent the most ever for airline tickets this year. DH has traveled roundtrip two times already and we are expecting at least three more trips before the end of the year.

We have purchased a ticket for a trip in October. Paid about $345 for that one.

Right now we are looking into tickets for two trips home in November. Specifically Thanksgiving. Yesterday when I looked the tickets were going for over $600! Today, they have come back down.

Got a call from DH while I was writing this post. Officially, two trips in November are booked. Total $733 for 8 nights at home. It's worth it, but hard to choke down the cost!

    I know the cost of airfare is hard financially, but consider the toll emotionally if he didn't come home to see you guys as often as you can afford. You need that time with him. Your daughters need that time with him. It isn't forever and what will you look back on? The memories of the times he came home or the idea that you could have saved more money if you'd gone longer between visits?

    Thank you LR!! Yes, I would much rather have the memories and time with him than the money. I won't have any regrets. I'm sure of it. Again thank you for the words that back up exactly what my thought process is. Smile

    Make sure he's asking if there's a military rate. Sometimes it maybe cheaper
