Ours went up tuesday night with sunning

Booked last night and secured the lower price

If you call within 24 hours of increase you can still get lower price :$

Prices will traditionally be higher from now til early Apr. Its Reading Week, followed by Spring break. 1 of the busiest time of the year.

Sunwing definitely had a sale going until Feb 1st, which was $100 per person off of the tax portion.

In Winnipeg, Cuba was 286 regular, 186 with the sale. With 3 of us possibly going, that was $300 for sure.

Now we are waiting last minute for the 26th. Wish us luck. (it was our plan this year to go anywhere last minute and scoop a deal - we will either win or fail)

We are 'saving' at least $500 per person by travelling in mid-March rather than mid-February. Haven't bought our tickets yet but will keep our fingers crossed that the prices don't rise.

I have found the traditional high volume gateways such as Halifax in this area that have always offered the lowest prices in the past are not necessarily lower this year.

It pays to shop the smaller departure points this year as they all seem to have lower prices to certain places than the larger ones for some reason.

I am sure with all this snow hitting eastern Canada the prices will increase again as people say $hit i want out of this crap.

The suppliers are saying, Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow lalalala
