I've been looking at airfare to Rome for May 2010. Atlanta to Rome non stop. So far, I see the best is $1030 on Delta.
Having been twice now in the fall, I want to try spring. Not in a hurry to book, so I am wondering if I should wait and hope for a sale? Do fares usually change very much from the end of one year until spring of the next? Also want to wait to see if there is a chance I may be able to transfer some Skymiles, but want to be prepared in case I can't find any or accumulate enough.
On my trip last month, we paid 735 RT each. Bought those tickets back in April.
Trying to get the best deal I can, especially since the hotel I just stayed in, Hotel Diplomatic, has much higher rates for May. Just paid 85E per night, and May is 137E a night. Really want to stay there again, but will explore other options. Being my third trip, I think I might be comfortable enough to stay in an apartment alone if I can find a good deal.
If anyone has any advice or insight, I would appreciate it. I'm just not familiar enough with the airlines and sales versus time of year.
