After all this cold weather we’ve been having, wouldn’t it be nice to get away for a vacation?  According to consumer expert Clark Howard, discount airlines always start off the new year with fare sales.  From what we’ve seen, these fare sales usually don’t last long, so you need to act fast. 

For example, Frontier Airlines announced a fare sale on January 18th but you must book a flight by today, January 20th.  Fares are as low as $49 (one-way) from Milwaukee to cities such as Pittsburgh and Minneapolis/St. Paul.  While you’re searching for flights, Frontier advises that you’ll find the best deals on Tuesday and Wednesday flights. 

Howard also predicts that hotels will likely have deals and promotions throughout 2011, which will help make your travel more affordable if you plan properly.

If you’re considering travel plans, you can be alerted to these fare sales by signing up for email distribution lists from the major discount airlines that fly out of Milwaukee including Frontier, Southwest Airlines,  and AirTran.  (Southwest Airlines has proposed to acquire AirTran.)

Are there any other tools you like to use to watch for cheap airfare out of Milwaukee?  If so, please leave a comment to share with our readers.
