Travel deals 04.02.2009

Ok, I’m finally back from the states, my Guitar Hero blisters are healed and I’m somewhat up to date with the recent travel deals. Wanna see what’s been lurking in my ever-so-spammy inbox? Sure you do!

10€ Ryanair fares
If you are near one of the airports served by Ryanair, don’t mind wading through tons of restrictions and want to book something today, you might want to click here. This deal ends at midnight tonight and doesn’t include charges for checked luggage and the like.

Etihad Airways specials
Want to go to a far-flung destination? Etihad is having specials for departures from Munich and Frankfurt available for purchase until February 15. It looks like there are different sets of fares for different time periods (most frequently Jan 14 – Mar 31, then Apr 11 – to Jun 20), so pay close attention to the terms and conditions. Luckily, you’ve got a little time to research before this one expires.

Opodo sale
This one is an across-the-board sale on airfare, hotel, car rental, etc. Opodo has all sorts of specials for getting to the U.S. from Germany (mostly New York), to Germany from the U.S., plus accommodation and transportation in different areas. Again, read the terms carefully – Opodo is just a broker, so the ins and outs can vary greatly.

Lufthansa bargains
I think Lufthansa is hurting. They are constantly having specials and extending sales that were supposed to expire. Help them out and put your butts in their seats. Wanna go visit the U.S.? They want to help you do so if you book by March 2 and depart before May 31. Considering something a little more adventurous? There are deals to destinations in Asia, Africa and South America.

That looks like the best of what I’ve received. As per usual, if you have a hot tip that I’ve missed, please leave it in the comments. And hopefully now that the traveling is on hiatus and the move is complete, I can resume the regular travel posts. Happy trails!
