    I flew into STI and left from SDQ for 298 on Spirit this past february, so I believe you since it was during the kids february break.



    I admit, looking for fares is a kinda of a hobby, but it s work................
    Exactly, I don't believe there are any set rules to follow for best fare. Best fares this week maybe Tuesday, next week Thursday, following week Wednesday at 1 AM.

    You just need to keep looking and as mentioned be prepared to play games. Every person will be different when it comes to buying airline ticket.

    Myself flying out of EWR guarantees me non-stop flights to SDQ. I am frequent flyer with United so even if Spirit was $100 bucks less the perks I get with United make up for the extra cost.

    The frequent flyer mile points I try to save for summer or Christmas time use when fares are the highest. Even that is tricky because of black out dates.


    NOW who is going to be the first to post $59 round trip to PUJ from NYC due to all the bad DR publicity. :-)

    Also, I am not going to look for 150 RT to DR, so I have an idea of when I should pull the plug. Multicity are often better deals. In DR, I often piece one/way together, so I could fly in and leave from different airports and/or different airlines, whatever comes the most convenient or cheapest.
    Yes, try in all ways possibles, sometimes buying 2 tickets one way also is cheaper than book a return flight using same dates.

    Looking for a flight from Brussels to Santo Domingo for the fall.
    There used to be a flight Brussels-Punta Cana- Santo Domingo but like I said, used to be.

    The cookies thing is a myth.
