    Roundtrip ticket to London

    Hey fellow spoofsters!

    I have been searching high and low for the best deal on a roundtrip ticket to London. It doesn't matter what airport I arrive in (Gatwick or Heathrow), and I am leaving from Detroit Metro Airport. I would leave December 29 and arrive January 9. The departure date can be sooner if it is cheaper, but no later than the 29th. My fiance and I are getting married on the 31st in Scotland!! (She lives in London) Anyone up for the challenge??

    Thanks in advance. I may bring a special treat back from London for the person who finds me the best deal!! my best so far is $558 from travelocity. I know there is something better out there.

    Thanks again!!

    Agreed! You definitely need your rest before your "big day" :D and that long layover would not help!

    Best wishes to you and your fiancee! Penpen

    A few more...

    Orbitz.com has a RT flight (DTW-LHR) for $452, leaving Dec 29, if you can return on Jan 10 instead of the 9th, otherwise, it's $477 thru them returning Jan 9. The Jan 10 return leg has 3 different departure times too.

    Expedia.com is more pricey than Orbitz.com, which has the RT flight for $492 on the days you noted.

    You know, I swear the prices must have changed later in the day. This afternoon when I was looking I couldn't find anything under $550. Now there is something under $500 on every site. The itineraries aren't the greatest, but alot cheaper.

    Those last 2 you found are good penpen. I've got a couple of travel agents calling me back tomorrow so i'll decide once I can compare some prices!

    Thanks again for all of your help!

    I know what you mean, Al Shah, airfares can fluctuate daily, even hourly! You just need to keep checking.

    P.S. If you book a flight, and later you happen to see that your airline is advertising an even lower fare, you can always get a credit voucher from that airline for the difference. This happened to me several times, when I'd book a flight thinking it was a pretty good deal, then the airline would drop their price even lower! I'd just let the travel agent/airline know, and they'd issue me a credit voucher w/ the airline. Just FYI ;)
