Booking an escape can be just a click away--for most---when choosing which airline will carry them to their destination (though some admittedly will still opt to phone in a reservation). Whatever route you prefer to secure a seat on the airline of choice, knowing which carrier offers the cheapest fees can amount to being a great money saver. Today, airlines tack on fees unbeknownst to many flyers. What can at first appear to be a cheap ticket, when fees are attached, can prove to be a pricey purchase.

Tired of revisiting the same old beach year after year on the
routine and always predictable family vacation? Do your all your
trips seem to bleed together in haze of souvenir shops, theme parks
and too much driving? It's time to get away from the typical
rotation of vacation spots and discover something new.
International travel might seem intimidating at first glance, but
there's a whole world beyond crowded waterparks and gaudy tourist
traps--and it's more accessible than you might think.
Just recently Virgin America, opened up services to Chicago and since the price was right and I needed to book tickets for my cousin's wedding, I chose to fly with them.
I'd flown with them before when my older child was almost two years-old and had a great experience. At the time, my daughter was a little sick and instead of having her sit on my lap, they gave me the entire row.
I have to say that this time around, I was a little disappointed with the inconsistency of customer service.
School is out, the sun is shining, and it's time to take off for a family vacation! However, before you book an expensive trip, it's important to take a good hard look at your budget and the money that you have available to spend. The economy is rough, disposable income is down, and your next summer vacation needs to be inexpensive, without of course sacrificing fun.
Here are some great ways to save on your next summer vacation:
As each news day brings the story of another monolithic air carrier biting the proverbial dust, the future of air travel seems headed in the direction of smaller, niche carriers. With so many cropping up, which airline is the best fit for your travel needs?
It doesn't take an aviation expert to see that the old business model for air travel is becoming extinct. With huge airlines charging big rates and then nickel and diming passengers, many annoyed travelers are looking for friendlier skies.
Enter the niche airline market. Dozens of tiny airlines catering to smaller market shares are cropping up. Rather than spreading themselves thin, these niche airlines do less--but do it better.
So which niche airline fits your travel personality?
