I'm trying to book a trip to FL for Dec 26 or 27 returning the following week, probably Dec 30, but I could be flexible as we have a wedding there on Dec 28. I realize that airfare will be ridiculous because it is Christmas week, and unless I can find something reasonable, I will not be going.

I have looked on the major airline sites, and prices are through the roof. So I started to try the discount sites such as, but it feels like bait and switch to me. It keeps giving me flights for $305 round trip, which would be in the budget, but when I go to book it, tells me that it is now $444. Is this typical of priceline? When I do the search again, I get that same $305 price point, but then it goes right up when I try to book.

Is there a trick to this? I can certainly keep waiting and keep searching, but it's starting to feel hopeless.

Anyone have any ideas for me?
