Holiday Surcharges Rise: Another Good Reason to Buy NOW

November 4, 2009 | Posted in: Airfare News,Holiday Travel

I’ve told you that holiday airfare prices are going up. But now, even the holiday “peak travel date” surcharges are going up.

In fact, the holiday surcharges have doubled.

Now, instead of paying $10 one-way to fly on numerous airlines on Nov. 29, 30; Dec. 19, 26, 27; and Jan. 2, 3 – you’ll pay $20 one-way. And you may not even know it – these surcharges are folded into the price of your ticket.

It’s all about the airlines and their need for profits. One airline spokesperson noted, prices around the holidays have always been higher – so it’s just a matter of supply and demand.

It is indeed – so check out my “When-to-Fly” Holiday Calendars – so you can get the cheapest possible airfare.

    Can you take food on Delta? We have some younger children flying with us at Christmas time & thought about = cheese & crackers, small bag of chips, candy bar. etc

    Jeanne,
    Yes, you can bring food, just not liquids (or things like jars of jam, etc.).
    We have some “essential tips for traveling with children” that you might enjoy, and it comes with a video: here is the link http://www.farecompare.com/articles/best-time-to-buy-airfare/essential-travel-tips-flying-with-children/
    Have a great trip,
