"You can no longer go to one web site to find the best
fares from any city for any time of the year. It will take
a little searching, but it could save you hundreds of dollars"
Thanks David -- After a couple of hours of searching
on Booking Wiz last night I actually found a fare from Pittsburgh
to Athens for my dates for $802 (including taxes). Needless
to say I purchased it. It involves three flights per leg,
but the dollars I save can be better spent at a taverna.
It really is amazing how repeated searches (even with the
same info) can turn up radically different fares. The whole
process feels like some form divination to me! Anyway, thanks
for your info. I find your site and your e-mails incredibly
to use this site...
Most importantly, there are ads from companies all over
this site that want your business. If they're advertising
then they probably have some pretty good fares, but no
one company has all the best fares from all the cities
on all the dates. Check out the ads along the side of
the pages and see if they can offer you a Great Fare from
your preferred City. Once you've found what you think
is the best fare, use the Search Engines here
to see if they can beat it. Once you find something, send
me the airline, dates, departure city and destination
and the fare. I will sell it to you for less if I can,
or send you to someone who is able to. I'd also be happy
to advise you on whether to purchase it or not....

TO TRAVEL TO GREECE? HOPE YOU'RE SITTING DOWN!
The fares this year have been INCREDIBLY OVERPRICED compared
to the past 6 years. I guess Europe is a hot spot and
the airlines see no need to lower their fares to a reasonable
range. As long as people continue to pay this outrageous
fares, the prices won't come down. My guess is that sometime
in the next couple of months the airlines will see that
they have some empty seats on their planes and then the
feeding frenzy will begin(hopefully). Until then, you
can either bite the bullet and purchase a ticket that
is $400-600 more than last year.... or wait... in hopes
that lower fares will come!
the last hope for low fares disappeared. I spoke with
Homeric Tours that usually offers reasonable fares on
charters from NY, but they have decided not to offer charter
flights this years because "fuel is too high".
Putting the Money Saving
Strategies Together: A Case Study
and welcome to GreeceFlights.com, a Globe Merchant company.
My name is David Econopouly and I started GreeceFlights
in 1999 to offer you low cost fares to Greece and other
Times have changed in the Airline industry with the
airlines doing more direct work with the passengers
and cutting out the commissions for the Travel Agents.
They are also offering us Net Fares, which often times
are more than the price that they sell tickets directly
this web site I offer different strategies for finding
low fares to Greece. On the left are quite a few ideas,
but I will be adding new strategies so keep checking
back. But most importantly, check the ads...No one knows
where all the lowest fares are, but if you keep searching
you're more likely to find them.....
you've searched the ads and search engines on the site,
complete the Ticket Quote Form request(the link is on
the left side of the page.... and we'll see if I can
find you something better, if I can send you somewhere
else to save money or if you should hold off until a
better fare comes along
Olympic Airways is one of the better
options. Since they codeshare with United, Northwest,
American, Delta, USAir and Continental we can
get flights from almost any city in the US. Also,
from January to March they come out with a winter
sale and then later a Spring sale which makes
the flights very competitive.
