Not the day of the flight. We went weeks in advance.

outta the oven!
Thank you for this suggestion! This is what we are going to do, booking the train today. It’s 3 hours to Lorton then on the train overnight and arrival in Florida the next morning and we have the advantage of having our own vehicles and not having to rely on Uber or rental cars.
It’s almost ONE THIRD the cost of flying right now!
It’s funny how we are almost going back to the old days where only the wealthy could fly, and most people took the train.
Let us know how it goes. The trains in the US do not run like the trains in Switzerland.
Auto Train has been a staple here for many years, Sanford to VA, couple of us talked about putting motorcycles on it and taking it to VA and riding back through the mountains.
FYI Firearms are treated like airlines, you have to check them in, you can't leave them in a case in your car, you have to check it...
Spirit Airlines as a couple of others said, is, IMO, the cheapest.
I personally have never flown on it (and swear I never will) but my daughter flew from Houston to Tampa and back for $300 and change back in the Spring of 2022.
Double that in September ($298 and change) on United and that, was just a one-way.
There's a Catch-22 type "gotcha." Amtrak will accept firearms in checked baggage, much like airlines will. However, there is no facility for checked baggage on the Auto-Train.
Any cocktail can be a shrimp cocktail if you put your mind to it, and if you carry lots of loose shrimp in your pocket.

I guess it depends on where you're flying to and the time of year. I recently looked at flights to Tucson, AZ from Philly and round trip tickets were only about 600 bucks which seemed pretty reasonable. Where did you get your quote from, did you contact the airline directly or use one of the many travel webpages like travelocity? You might also try flying out of Newark or BWI and see if they have cheaper flights. Popular routes like Orlando this time of year is going to be expensive especially on a holiday weekend since lots of folks are seeking warm weather.This message has been edited.

I'm looking at tickets to Cancun in June and they are $1400 right now. Hoping that price comes down as it gets closer. They say 90 days out is the best time to buy. I'm going to wait and see if that is right.
