In the world I live in, here are my actual options, according to Travelocity:
- Economy: refundable $3200, non-refundable $1000
- First class: refundable $4500, non-refundable $2400
So no, I’m not booking refundable tickets, nor am I booking blind given the total lack of information.
Where do you see those prices?? Those are crazy. Where are you flying from? Your profile in here says Seattle, WA...
Canada notoriously has some of the most expensive domestic flight travel in the world. In 2016, I literally flew from the arctic circle (well, Yellowknife) to FLL, return, for $559.23 CAD (in today USD that would be $427.07). At least in Canada, it's all about waiting for those seat sales, really. In 2017 & 2018 I was living in the GTA, so I had probably the easiest/cheapest flights out/into Canada. I flew round-trip YYZ to FLL in those years for $355.49 CAD ($271.27 USD) and $402.71 CAD ($307.31 USD).
Don't use Travelocity; just search with Google Flights, then book the flight itself directly through the airline so you don't run into third-party booking problems (e.g cancellation issues). I see a non-refundable return flight from SEA to FLL Jan 30th/Feb 4th for $352 USD right now; it's a red-eye United flight. I guess that's another important point: I've always gone for the cheapest flights, they really don't bother me, I just sleep on the airplane and I've got nothing against layovers or sleeping on airport floors, lol. If you don't want to spend money, you gotta do what ya gotta do.
