Price Drop! Cheap Fares To New Zealand!

It isn’t often we see cheap prices to New Zealand come down the pike.  There aren’t a lot of airlines that fly to and from New Zealand.  That helps keep prices high. Right now there are $700 round-trip fares available.  That’s easily a few hundred dollars cheaper than I normally see.  Keri at Heels First Travel has the details. Essentially, you’ll be able to find these fares for travel through June of next year to Auckland.  Keep in mind that the warm season in New Zealand is effectively the opposite […]

CLEAR Picking Up A Bit Of Steam? Adds San Jose, Second New Airport In Roughly 30 Days

I don’t imagine there are a ton of fans of CLEAR right now.  When they folded a few years ago they lost all mindshare.  They were resurrected from the dead but didn’t have much relevancy because not too many airports signed on. Add to that the ability to apply for Global Entry to access TSA PreCheck and the proliferation of PreCheck, and CLEAR became pretty much obsolete.

By hub, here are the new routes: Washington Dulles: Guatemala City, Costa Rica San Jose, Costa Rica Vancouver Grand Rapids, MI Chicago: San Jose, Costa Rica Fairbanks, Alaska Newark: Edmonton Denver: Fort MacMurray, Alberta Santa Fe Los Angeles: Wichita My own observations are: I thought it was interesting that Dulles picked up the most new routes.
