AMS-MIA Offer I Couldn't Refuse!

Mon Nov 16, 2009 8:44 am

Hello all,

Just wanted to share the story behind booking our trip from AMS to MIA in summer of 2010.

We (me, my wife and our 4 months old baby) will take part on a cruise in the Carribean, so we needed a flight from AMS to MIA. Looking for flights at various booking-sites resulted in approximately € 1900,- for the three of us (AMS-MIA-AMS).

But, as we arrive one day ahead of the start of the cruise I made a combination on expedia.nl of a returnflight to Miami AND one night in a hotel in the neighbourhood of Miami Airport.

Because of the extra hotel-booking the price dropped to € 1190,- including the stay in the hotel!
Flight is AMS-LHR-MIA-LHR-AMS with BA.

First I thought I made a mistake when entering our details, but since everything was ok, I just booked.

Still confused about the (apparently?) low price, I did another search this time again without the hotel. Price was raised with € 800,-. to € 1990,- ...

It felt a bit like stock broking on Wall Street  Smile

regards, Martijn
