This post is about my ongoing obsession, ie; how do you figure out the airline companies and their pricing structure? I talk to people all day, all week, all month, about travel to Belize. Everyone asks “When should I get my ticket? Should I wait, or get it now? Are they going to get less or more expensive as the trip gets closer?” Good questions!
Two weeks ago I did my weekly check of Belize flights and was stunned to see that they had dropped across the board. We track 26 cities for our Belize fares web page, and the least any fare had dropped over the course of that week was 11%. One route dropped by over 50%!
I blogged about it and sent a mass email to our list of 20,000 telling everyone to buy air tickets to Belize right away. I know some of you took my advice because we heard from many of you. At that time I predicted these fares wouldn’t last long, and they didn’t. A week later some of the routes were creeping up, and now, two weeks later, they are back up to the neighborhood of where they started.
I know this does not answer my question “What is the rhyme or reason of Belize fares?” but somehow it makes me feel better putting it out there for everyone to see.
