I'm wondering when to begin to get serious about my airline ticket purchase for next years' vacation. I will be going either June or July, and flying from Dallas, DFW.
I will probably go to Europe, but not necessarily, I really have no idea what I want to do yet.
My dates are flexible. I've begun searching for random fares for the month of June in 2015, and flights to London, Paris, Amsterdam, Athens are extremely high right now about one year in advance. The fares average around 1,600.
I will probably fly open-jaw. I'm not a seasoned traveler; I've only flown Delta and American, if that matters, so I don't have experience with other airlines, especially discount airlines. I will be traveling solo.
I've read a few books about the pricing and how the prices go up and down on demand. I need your advice for knowing when the prices I see are serious enough for me to begin getting an idea of budget- and also approximately when to make the purchase.
Thanks so much!
