[07/10/2015 @ 4:04 PM] Fare has been removed by Delta. Removing from deal list. 🙁
This fare has no blackout dates and allows a New Years Eve vacation in London at a discount rather than an exorbitant premium. I expect flights around New Years and Holidays will sell out first.
Delta and Virgin have round-trip flights from Austin (AUS) to London (LHR) for $806 with a connection. Flights are wide open; every day from late August to March-2016. Flights with two-stops and a lot of airport time are available for $770, not worth it in my opinion, but it’s there if you’re wanting to save a few bucks and like hanging out in airports. See the Flight Details section of this post for example dates.
Here’s an example of a round-trip over New Years, in London (from Priceline).
To save the most money, be sure to make use of the travel coupon codes available at the bottom of this post.
Note: OTAs such as Orbitz and Priceline allow free cancellation before 10 PM CST the day after purchase. As deals sell-out or expire quickly, this policy allows you to “lock-in” the cheap fare while you sort out a plan. After the grace period, you will not be able to cancel without the regular penalty.
United, Delta, JetBlue and Virgin America offer free cancellation within the next 24-hours while American allows you to “Hold” a ticket for 24-hours. Keep in mind that once you pay for a ticket on AA.com you can’t cancel it without a change fee or penalty, even if was purchased less than 24-hours ago.
The Department of Transportation doesn’t enforce 24-hour free cancellation on tickets less than 7-days away from departure, so some airlines and OTAs will allow it while some will not. On Orbitz, you can easily see if your ticket allows a free cancellation, just look for “FREE Cancel” next to the price of the ticket.
