air fare to sju

just a way to early question: when would be the best time to book the cheapest air from Portland Ore to SJU, for dates 09/18/2014- 09/27/14

If anyone could predict when that would be they'd be millionaires. It's impossible to predict airfare but generally speaking you find "good" fares about 3 or 4 months out.

Your best bet is to monitor fare and when you see a good one book it - it may not be there tomorrow. Sign up for "Air Fare Alerts" with your airline(s) of choice and on travel sites like Kayak, Expedia, Orbitz, etc.

IMO - 90 days in advance is safe window to work with.

Prices to SJU go nowhere but up. Start monitoring prices, and buy when you see a trend up. Be sure to clear your cache and to use different computers if necessary.

BTW, do you know you are planning to visit on peak hurricane season?

Sometimes a package deal with air & hotel can be a better deal. I have done this & dumped the hotel.

Hurricane season may mean slightly lower fares. I buy about 3 months out with cash, 11 months when the schedule comes out, if using miles. Look for low demand periods if you have flexibility, we found good fares for travel in early November. Kayak air site has a monitor of the lowest prices found by some travelers, and a graph guage of when to wait or buy.
