    Newark to Aruba in June, is this a good airfare?

    Looking to go to Aruba in June, dates are set at June 22nd to June 30th. The airfare is currently $507 pp round trip nonstop out of Newark. Thinking of booking, does this sound like a good price?

    We waited last year and ended up paying more by waiting. We just booked a non-stop from Newark to Aruba in December which seems to be a busier tourist time than June for $420.00 pp round trip. We have paid close to $700 by waiting closer to our departure date. Its kinda like gambling. Do you have the nerve to wait out and get maybe $90 cheaper? Would you be mad if the rates went up some? IMO I would get that part of the trip over and relax. Good luk what ever you decide.

    i agree with what crimms says! if you are OK with $507, by all means push that button.
    will it drop to $4something? maybe/maybe not. I think i would take it and then not look at the rates again.
    United right?

    Thank everybody, yes it's with United. I am ready to push the button, but hubby says we should wait. We want to upgrade to the seats with more leg room, and he says the difference in airfare could help pay for them. My thinking is this could all backfire and we will have to pay higher airfare, and forgo the seats with extra legroom. I just wish this was easier....

    I say buy them now. Why play Russian Roulette over the cost of four Aruba Arribas? Good luck!

    we found an offer from UA for $479, but decided to spend some more bucks for business class.
    I'm sure the prices won't drop below 479, so you should book rigt now.

    I am with the opinion of some others that $507 is reasonable. If you were flying mid week I would hold out for something less expensive, but flying on a Sunday you are competing with lots of timeshare owners who are locked in to Sunday to Sunday.

    This week the price for dates in April was $407, so $500 seems high to me. I would recommend Kayak.com, it will give you advise on buy or wait, based on past faring between the cities and the dates you are requesting. Kayak is usually very accurate for me.
    Good luck and have a great trip!

    The few bucks you might...or might not save isn't worth the worry...... do it!
