Well, he doesn’t do the deals, he just lists them, so I don’t have to. Who am I talking about? My travel bud Scott McMurren, that guy I’m allowed to play radio with every Tuesday on KUDO AM 1080. Scott has this thing about low airfares and finding the best of the best for his Alaskan cohorts, who would be the rest of us. Yesterday he put out a whole list of really, really low airfares on his web site AlaskaTravelgram.com, and my goodness, these are smoking hot deals.
Here’s just a small sampling of the bounty:
Anchorage to Minneapolis: $304 RT all-in (fees, taxes, your first-born, everything)
Anchorage to Denver: $376 RT all-in
Anchorage to Portland (our fav): $400 RT all in. No kidding.
Scott says the best travel days are T/W/Sa, and his helpers at US Travel are on the ball with finding the best seats in the aircraft at these prices, so if you have trouble, call them at 561-2434 or 800-544-2217.
It’s also not too early (although I’m fighting the feeling) to be thinking about Christmas gifts for those difficult-to-buy-for people in your life. Here’s a thought. Consider the Great Alaskan Tour Saver or Seattle Tour Saver, each chock full of 2 for 1 deals in either Alaska or greater Seattle. 130 trips in each little gold mine of a book, all tried and true activities guaranteed to be a ton of fun. So visit their web site here to prepare for the 2011 release in the late fall months.
AK Kid and I had a fabulous day in the Yahoo Mat-Su area of Wasilla yesterday, traipsing about and enjoying some sunshine. Look for our blog post on KTUU’s GoToAK.com site tomorrow; it just might make you want to jump in the car with the kids.
