Air has to be paid the day you book, even though a travel agent. They charge a fee too. International flights are expensive. I paid $600 to FL on spring break this year.

Where are you wanting to go?  It is usually the cheapest to go through directly the airline than through anywhere else.

Best to book a package deal so if you need hotel, car, etc when you book them together you can get a better price

Supposed to be going to Cancun for my family vacay beginning of August, but these prices for my family of 5 are ridiculous. I was just hoping that someone knew some inside tips so I don't have to pay the outrageous prices of "Cancun in the summer".

I have booked many trips and flights in multiple states. Travel agents don't book on credit. None I worked with.

You can't make payments on flights. You have to pay in full up front no matter how you do it.

Booking flight and hotel with out without a car is usually cheaper. As well as booking through the airline themselves

Does cancun need a passport or still just ids?   One of the travel bidding sites may have better deals.  Going anywhere in summer with a family of 5 will be expensive.

I'm not sure if we need passports, but we have them. I just may have to reconsider going.
