Suggestions for Airfares?

June 2, 2004 at 03:42 AM · I know this is a bit off-topic, in terms of sheer violin-related stuff, but I was wondering if anyone here had some really good travel deal websites or travel agents to recommend. I've tried Priceline, Travelocity, Easyjet and the like for fares to Monaco or Nice, France (which is the closest international airport to Monte Carlo), but the airfares those sites came up with were ridiculously expensive. They START at $1,070 and go up from there.

So...any ideas, folks? I tried Theme Park Insider, by the way, but the best deal they offer is $1,073 for Nice, or $834 for London (from where there are a whole lot of budget airlines that fly all over Europe). I was hoping for something more like @ $800 to Nice or $500 to London, at most.

Try the Yahoo Travel at That should land you some affordable options.

I'm curious to know who the other competitors are. :)

Basically, it's a "come if you think you're such hot stuff" option. The only thing I do know is that only international competition finalists are allowed to even submit videotapes for entry...
