Holiday sale airfares are here!

Last minute low fares over the holidays are usually impossible to come by but you may be able to luck out this year. United Airline's recently announced holiday fare sale will get you to where you want to go at one of the lowest fprices of the year. Each-way fares start at $49.00 with round-trip purchase and are available from cities all across the U.S. Valid on select dates only you’ll need to travel between November 20, 2008 and January 8, 2009.

The best part of this sale is the special way United will show you how to find the lowest fare. Here's how it works. Go to and click on the "Holiday sale artwork." A color coded calendar will be displayed showing the different fare levels. Green is a good fare, yellow is a better fare and pink is the best or lowest available fare. All the secrets to finding the cheapest holiday flights are out on the table.

As in most air fare sales the other carriers will not be far behind so click, book & save!

Happy travels!
