    Cheapest Airfares - Life Happens

    Just got the news that my Mom is in Hospice in Kalispell, Montana.
    I really can't afford the regular airfare (around $1200),& am trying to
    figure out what to do.As my Mom said - "Getting old sucks".How true.
    Ideas/suggestions?

    Just you flying?

    I looked on Google and saw flights as low as 308.00 return. But I did just use Montana as a destination.

    Getting Old may suck but it beats the alternative.

    My Mother said basically the same thing.

    If your a veteran, may be able to use the armed forces travel website. It's fairly new and has some decent deals. I know there's quite a few veterans in this section so maybe itll help someone.

    Doug I searched this website and found it under $500 - BUT - NEXT MONTH - not sure what timeline is like.

    it might also be a time to talk to a travel agent as they often know other possibilities

    Sorry to hear.

    Have you looked at possibly flying into a lager airport, say Great Falls, then driving a little to Kalispell (or might there be any friends or relatives there who could pick you up and take you the rest of the way?)

    Sorry to hear, tuff go.

    I like Google Flights. Plug in airports and a range of dates, then click "Date Grid" for a calendar of prices to pick and choose lowest pricing.

    Air fares will probably go up as summer approaches. Google will be your best friend. Good luck.
