So I have gone on for a few years about the great deals you can find at the end of August flying out of Detroit. (other cities as well, obviously)
I’m sure there are good reasons for this – many US schools are already back in, many people want to stay close to home to get ready for school, etc.
Well this helps you if you want to travel in this time!
As a family we went to Disney World end of August 2016 and saved $$$ on flights – not to mention the smaller crowds there that time of year!
Stayed at SPG Swan for free using points so that worked out very well.
Take Monday Aug 27 – Thur Aug 30 as an example.
That could be anywhere from 4 full days to 2 full days depending on your flight times.
But it isn’t an expensive time to fly – in general.
I will list a bunch of cities and their ROUND TRIP PRICE IN CDN FUNDS from Detroit.
Boston – 191
NYC – 225
Philly – 163
Myrtle Beach – 181
Ft Lauderdale – 195
Orlando – 240
Dallas – 214
Vegas – 323
LA – 364
Denver – 202
Calgary 392 – (great)
Quebec City – 295 (great)
As you can see there are some very good deals there – just use Google flights and play with it a bit – you can easily find better prices.
Thinking you need an escape now? Check out Karen’s page and get in contact with her.

Didya hear? Yes, I’m sure you did by now – I read at least 8 different bloggers’ version of this and am getting tired of it.
Canadian and US bloggers – I’ll put a link to the best Canadian blogger and US blogger about these changes.
Ya, you might not agree with my fav – but I’ve been reading these guys for years and I feel they have the best content.
You can just google this and find a whole bunch of information for yourself.
My take? Wait and see, find some sweet spots in the “off peak” bookings and of course get the new credit cards when they come out!
For everyone I know, that is pretty much it. For the bloggers that do nothing but travel and write they will have much more to say – but I personally know nobody that stays 50 nights year/spends thousands of dollars on one card etc.
So let’s just see what’s coming and hope the sign-up bonuses are sweet and they keep referral bonuses!
I love doing the Detroit Summer Series and finding great flight prices.
In this case, it’s Boston and it is not very expensive all summer.
If you use Google Flights you can see many options Detroit – Boston at $177 CDN round trip all summer.
Here is a picture of the screen you get.
Basically try a bunch of options – you will eventually find the $177 flights.
This is on Delta too – so that will make people happy!
Sunday August 19 – Wednesday August 22 is one of those options.
There are many more!
Karen has Transat Tuesday and Wild Wednesday deals posted here!
Check her page on how to get ahold of her…
More deals from Karen – 7 nights in Cuba from $499!!!!!
Well, April is here and I’m thinking summer trips now!
When I started doing this series a few years ago…
I would wait till May – but that’s no fun.
I plugged in some dates in July and settled on Sat. July 7 – Wed. July 11 (coincidentally dates of a trip we are planning) and found some nice flight prices out of Detroit to…
Boston $164 (all prices round trip and CDN funds)
Washington DC $127
and I have to throw in Ft. Lauderdale my fav at $170.
I will post more specific and hopefully lower priced deals soon – but that’s a nice start.
