Sunday Suggestions….

Here is something we use often.  A lot of you might know about it…hopefully you do.  But I know that a lot of our Canadian friends don’t realize that this option is available.  It is Allegiant air.  http://allegiantair.com

Allegiant air is an airline that is only in the United States.  Luckily for some of us Southern Canadians, we can hop in our cars, go over the border and arrange a flight for a substantially lower dollar amount.  The trick is that certain airports, such as Great Falls, Montana, only have Allegiant flights to Las Vegas and Phoenix.  We just happen to like going those places and on occasion have arranged flights for as low as $59 + taxes each direction.  A very big difference to the $200 plus out of the nearest Canadian airport!  For us this means more trips.  Not just couples trips either, with those prices we are able to take all 5 of us more often.  There is nothing quite like renting a house in Phoenix for a week and knowing you will still be able to afford groceries when you get home 🙂

Hello Vegas and Disneyland!

Our family went on a trip to Disneyland about 5 years ago.  Our youngest daughter loved California Adventure.  Ever since then she has wanted to go back.  For the last year we have been promising her to go back.  It worked out that we could only get away the week of August 6, so we started researching.  We found that if we drove to Great Falls Montana and flew Allegiant Air we would save approximately $1500.  The savings on our flights more than paid for our food and hotels for the rest of the trip.
