Holiday airfares up- some by 59% - Or, why you should let our sales agents find you the right fare.

Many fliers, including skiers and riders will pay more — sometimes half as much more — for airline tickets this holiday season. On some routes, fares are up to 59% higher than last year for travel before Thanksgiving and up to 40% higher before Christmas, according to an analysis of various travel sites.

Domestic airfares hit bottom in May 2009, were relatively low for Thanksgiving last year and now, based on reduced capacity and increased demand have crept up. The reason: Consumers who stopped flying during the recession are taking to the air, and airlines have reduced the number of seats available in the past few years to cut costs,.

The most expensive day to fly will be Dec. 26.. The least expensive day to fly will be Dec. 31.

Our ski and ride agents will search for the best available fares to your favorite destinations. Give us a call at 800-283-2754 or
