View Full Version : SW - additional charges and taxes..

Still working on my budget here for the December trip.. We plan on flying SW (gotta LOVE those non-stop speedy trips) and was wondering if someone could give me a little more info..

I know that there have recently been some extra fees added in (since 9/11) and what I need is a TOTAL figure - with fees and taxes..

I'm 99% sure that I'll be able to snag tickets for at least $99 each way - for a total of $198 per person.. But after they add on the new security fees, taxes, etc., could someone please tell me what I would be budgeting for in terms of the TOTAL cost of a ticket?

Make a fake reservation, they disclose the total fare before you need to purchase and it is broken down as to taxes and fees.

Thanks, Gail!!

I did it - using October $99 promotional fares - and it came out just about where I had figured for 3 people:

RT air from Albany, NY to Orlando : 552.54
Taxes for three............................ : 59.46
PFC & Security Fees for 3............. : 33.00

Grand total of : $645

I figured $650 - so I wasn't too far off !! ;)

Not too shabby C.Ann!!! good guessing. :) But, keep on watching SWA's site, they might just have a fare sale.
