$250 round trip

OTHER DEALS - INCLUDING DELTA FOR UNDER $200http://travel.travelocity.com/flights/AirSearch.do?SEQ=12119067697514272008




I spent around $250 for Spirit round trip FLL to San Antonio. American/Continental I have also flown. You have to connect through Dallas or Houston. Delta connects through Atlanta. Very few, if any, direct flights from FLL to San Antonio or Austin on the "big" airlines.

Anyone else get some deals?????

After $200 flight, $100 a night for the hotel, $X for the tailgate and $70 (or whatever it is) for game ticket, FAU sponsored trip may still be the best deal; even if it is a bit more expensive. At least it's a chartered flight…

Nunzio, Wpiero3, and I booked Jet Blue $260 - Round trip direct flight to Austin. Leaving Thursday August 28th (4:30pm flight) from FLL and coming back on Sunday August 31st.

We also booked a hotel at the La Quinta Inn on 6th street where if you plan to go out at night or do any kind of partying, Texas style.. 6th street is where you need to be. It is within walking distance to the stadium, If I remember correctly it was only 2 miles away so if you want to walk it you can. I believe the hotel cost about $135 a night, which isn't to bad.

$mitty while going through FAU may be a good idea, there's no guarantee they're doing anything charter wise or bus wise for this game. Plus that flight is going to fill up pretty quickly if they do, do something like that.

Also as far as hotels go, it is better to book it directly from the hotels website as opposed to Expedia, Hotels.com, Travelocity or any of those sites. You'll find better deals from the actual hotel website and if for whatever reason you need to cancel your rooms, you can do 24 hours in advance without having any fees being tacked on by those sites. You can also get a AAA/AARP discount if it applies

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Re: Plane Tickets to Texas

also if u book anything through those other 3rd party sites…..they dont have to honor them, and more times then not since they are lower priced deals…..they are the deals to get kicked to the side…..

so

book through AAA or direct through the hotel site….

Re: Plane Tickets to Texas

Spirit Airlines had $17 fares through the month of July one way from FLL to San Antonio. Look for deals like that as the summer comes to an end. They also had a $24 and $48 total ticket price in August, which would bring the normal $160 round trip flight down to about $110.

It's never too early to start planning an exciting, end-of-summer or fall adventure. Book now through June 26 for travel between September 3 and October 31, 2008 and save $10 each way!

Just click here and enter Promotion Code OCTJET when you select your flights. Remember, you must click through this email to take advantage of this offer and travel must be completed by October 31, 2008.

Happy Jetting!

That's the latest Jet Blue offering. Plane tickets are cheap. NO EXCUSES

Spirit Airlines is currently running great airline tickets. Some were as low as $9 for the weekend of the game.

That's a damn good deal. Not as good as $9 of course but probably the best you're going to get outside of that.
