I'm looking to take the other half to New York from 1st - 5th Jan 2009 for her 30th birthday. There appear to be some reasonable flight deals with Virgin and BA at the moment (around £330 pp).
The question is are the flights likely to come down in price between now and then? If so, when do they offer the deals etc? What would be a 'good' price for these flights?
Also, hotels in NYC currently look really expensive. Not sure what I was expecting, but a decent hotel is looking like £500+ for 4 nights. I was hoping it would be around £50 per night... Do hotel prices in New York come down considerably nearer the time? Would it be a realistic (and cheaper) option to fly out there and just turn up at a couple of hotels to see what they can offer? I'd prefer to avoid this as I like to be organised, but just exploring options.
Thanks in advance.
