The cheap flights/trips thread... post your cheap weekend breaks here!

Inspired by my utter lack of planning for this Easter weekend, I thought it would be cool to have a thread where people can post good deals on flights or weekend breaks that they have found... could be short notice or a month away, just share anything cheap and good!

PS: I will add one as soon as I find it, still looking for this weekend!

More of a search engine for cheap flights than last minute deals but works for me.

I got a last minute trip to the Maldives. Half board for 10 days for about 1000 bucks once.

Re: The cheap flights/trips thread... post your cheap weekend breaks here!

If you have frequent flyer status (for example BA silver currently doubles the airmiles flown; this will drop to 1.5x pretty soon) or even if not then factor in any airmiles you may get.

I flew to Japan a few weeks ago for a sale price of 530 CHF on BA. I got enough airmiles for 3 return trips to London (you have to pay 50 CHF per ticket to cover taxes/admin). I usually pay 200-250 for a return weekend flight to London so the flight to Japan was, in effect, free.

Amazing how much flights have come down in price, I can fly to Adelaide (Aust) in December for just over 1000Chuffs!! Now if I can just negotiate some holidays.
