Fare Prices

Post by flower » Tue Oct 14, 2014 1:26 pm

Have just logged onto Easyjets web site to get an idea of the fares. I put in last week of August and 1st week of September and was quoted £85 outbound and £185 inbound!(approx.)
What am I missing or am I having some kind of senior moment? Why the huge difference
between going out and coming back?

It's so they can advertise prices as Flights from...x number of pounds. Sometimes also the system seems set up to recognise return flight bookings & increase charges. I believe that in many instances (Or so I've been told) You may get a better deal by booking the flight as two separate singles ?
Nostalgia is not what it used to be.

The solution is to book the cheaper one-way now then wait for a flight the other way at a reasonable price. The insurance position, in case a reasonably-priced doesn't appear, is travelling via Athens as there are a dozen flights a day between Athens and the UK.

The first flight of the season from Kalamata and the last flight to Kalamata are usually less than than a third full and seats go for £30-£40 at some point. Great candidates to pair with an Athens flight.
