    Hey guys- considering March Break in Florida (Halifax based). Not opposed to driving to get a better fare. Need to travel Saturday March 8th (morning preferably) and back on Saturday March 15th (or Early on Sunday the 16th). Any ideas?

    Right now airtransat has direct flights for March and April from Moncton for $481 per person taxes in for Friday to Friday.

    Too bad I've already booked with Jetblue out of Boston.

    Hi neighbours! I thought I'd post here the deal we got on our flights out of Moncton.

    In 2010 we got lucky in March, and found flights for Oct1 for 8 days for $465 a seat. Which, I was very excited about.

    This year I did a search for all of Sept, Oct, Nov, and Dec (last week) and the cheapest week we found was for Oct 2-9th (I also alternated time frames...6 days, 7 days, 8 days). We got the seats for $370 a seat.

    This is a surprise trip, as we were not planning to go this year since we are going next. But the free dining, plus cheap seats, along with the fact that we miss Disney dearly, and voila. A week stay in October. I think Hubby is more excited than the kids and I are this time around. :banana:

    We are a family of 5 and normally fly from Portland, but the lure of direct flights led us to choose JetBlue from Boston for our March 2014 Disney cruise.

    Depart Feb 27, return Mar 9. Fare is 269 return (230 + 39 taxes/fees). Probably could have found fares in the low to mid 200's by waiting until Nov/Dec but wanted to get direct and preferred departure times.

    That is a good rate for Portland and through JetBlue. I love JetBlue. Where is your park and fly. I've used embassy suites for 5 before.

    We ended up booking Jetblue from Boston also for $204 per person. Total of $623 for 3 of us from March 23rd to April 4th.

    First time flying out of Boston and I'm really nervous about the drive and traffic. Anyone have any tips and any recommendations for a park, sleep and fly.

    Basic travel is not designed for families of 5! Great tip on embassy for 5!
    We may not use park and fly this trip, our departure is 8pm and we 2 days down time in Orlando before our cruise. I love to drive long distances, so the 7 hr is no sweat before the flight. It might allow me to nap on the plane.

    Our return flight is the opposite, we arrive nice and early in Boston. But I will search out the cost options with park and fly with embassy vs. long term off airport parking.

    Sometimes, if flights are operated by codeshare partners (i.e. booking on Air Canada but is really a United flight - or vice-versa) you can get a cheaper rate with the actual operator itself. I travel often for work, and I've used this trick a few times.

    That Expedia deal is still there and yes, you can book the same flight through United. That is a very very low rate ... if I could buy that I would! Great work Tinkershelly ... nice find!

    I'm having a terrible time finding fares from Moncton to MCO in November for anything less than $2500 for 4 people. Crossing my fingers something better turns up soon

    That is an excellent price. Trying to find something decent for around the 12th of April - April 20 or 21 out of Halifax or Moncton. Prices are crazy for that time.
