Ooo. I'd like to know how one of the posters drive went. I have thought if it but you would need a long vacation to do it.

Hi I am from Winnipeg and I have thought about using Allegiant from GF. Is it still cheaper even though you have to pay to park your vehicle? Did you take a bus to GF?

I've gone to Vegas with Allegiant through GF and it was fabulous. Parking is very reasonable. In our case it was well worth the savings. Check the GF Airport website.

We did the drive from MB March 2011. We anded up driving as far as Grand Forks the first night, til they closed the Highway on us, so we ended up storm stayed til the next afternoon. Wanted to make up time so I drove straight thru from there til we hit Orlando (wouldnt recommend this unless you have multiple drivers tho. I finally gave up the wheel in Nashvile and let my Mom take over for the rest of the way LOL). We really enjoyed the trip though. The savings were astronomical, even with fuel and hotel factored in. We planned on a full 3 day trip down, spent 5 days in Orlando, then 4 day Cruise, before we headed out on our 3 day drive back home.

Weather was a big factor for us, but other than that, depending on the time of year you plan to travel, no cons that I can think of

Take a look at gasbuddy.com. It is a great site for finding out the current gas prices in different states/ different interstate routes.

It also has a calculator that shows your estimated gas usage/costs roundtrip when you enter your route, vehicle make and year.

It can also give you the names of cheap gas stops on your route at points where it estimates you will need a fill up.

We drove down in our Chevy Malibu, averaging about 35 to 40 miles per gallon, and the round trip was approx 4500 miles. We spent less than $500.00 on fuel throughout our entire trip, including any side trips we took and the week of traveling in and around Orlando (we stayed just outside at a rental home in Davenport)
