Getting a bead on Sunwing price drops before takeoff.

On Sept 28th we booked in at the the Breezes Bella Costa for $725 ( taxes,not included, garden view suite). We took this late Oct booking because prices raised noticibaly for ALL hotel packages after Nov 1st.

On Oct 20th,(8 days before takeoff,) the price had actually went up to $845)

Today (two days before takeoff) the price has FINALLY dropped to $685,which is below what we paid.We'll see if it drops again tommorow.

It seems that those who are able to hold out until the last minute will be rewarded with the very best deal.Although it's not a good idea to hold out for flights to other countries and other airlines...I'll keep this in mind IF I book Sunwing to Cuba again.

Cheers!

If you booked and paid that price then you must have been happy with it.

Stop looking at the price.

\While it may be true in rare cases, often times the price remains the same or even gets higher.

It's all really a gamble. I see 1.5 stars going for what you paid for...

Comical the one offering advice to relax and have a Valium is the same one price watching like an eagle to save $40. Oh, the irony.

$845(top price)-$685(low price) = $160....base that on 2 people and it's a significant savings of $320 which is a lot more than $40.It does matter when you buy.

Other than that...

Sorry for the valium comment, as I'm just trying to be helpful with some money saving advice here on TA and I'll admit that my comment was inappropriate.

By booking smart (timely)I've saved over $500 dollars on a future trip to israel and past trips to south East Asia.Just want to be helpful...that's all.

Cheers!
