Holiday Airfare Prices Needn't Drain Holiday Cheer

It may not cost as much to to fly to family and friends for the holidays as much as some doom and gloomers might have you think. Airfarewatchdog sniffed around and turned up itineraries no more pricier than they would be any other time of the year:

New York/Paris Thanksgiving $602 : Miami to San Francisco, Thanksgiving $395 : Los Angeles/Honolulu Christmas $337 : Newark to Honolulu, Christmas $682 : Detroit to Miami, Christmas $164 : Atlanta to Las Vegas, Christmas $198

These are roundtrip, with taxes, and non-stop or with one connection. Airfarewatchdog doesn’t directly link to the fares for some reason, probably so people don’t get disappointed if the fares change, but we guess the point is to dig deep and not get discouraged, non-insane prices can be had. What’s your favorite tool for finding good deals on airfare?
