What time is the best to buy ticket to Bogota?

Hi. My friends and I are planning a trip to Colombia for the end of June 2013 and the beginning of July. We are flying from Chicago & NYC. What is the best time to buy our tickets? Thank You!

Use a search engine like kayak or skyscanner and set an alert for fares. My theory is that fares almost always go up and rarely come down, so if you are seeing what you think are resoanbly price fares now, go for it right away!

Spirit will be the cheapest, but read all the warnings here on TA, before deciding on whether saving $100 or so is it worth it. OK of you know what you are getting into, but don't expect any help from them if you miss your connection or fail to comply with their T&Cs.

From New York and Chicago your best bets will be Jet Blue, Copa, or Avianca, and for all three of those airlines, the discount tickets sell first. So I would start looking right now.

We flew Jet Blue from NYC - great flight and cheap. In general with Jet Blue the earlier you buy the cheaper it is.Think about where you fly in and out of. Internal bus travel is expensive and LONG - US $70 and 14 hours by bus from Medellin to Cartagena!

Fly jet blue, we have flown with them to cancun and will be flying Bogota shortly After you book your flight, watch your faire, if it goes down, call and they will put your difference in price into a travel bank for future use. We received 240 dollars in our travel bank and used for Bogota and that fare went down and they put the difference back into the travel bank.

I am sold on jet blue
