NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2013

NEW YORK, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --As students across the United States
pack their bags for a week away from their books, new research from Fly.com™
has identified an average airfare savings opportunity of $242 (or 48%) for top
spring break destinations.

This year, travelers from major college towns are overwhelmingly choosing
Florida for their mid-term getaway; with Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Miami,
Tampa and Fort Myers proving to be the most popular destinations for flights
between Feb. 23 and March 30, 2013. Las Vegas and two Mexican beach towns,
Cabo and Cancun, are also favorite getaway options.

While the cost of airfare to these destinations is up an average of 4.2%,
compared with the 2012 spring break travel period, savvy travelers can still
save money on each of this year's most popular flight routes. Data analysis
from Fly.com's Fare Calendars tool reveals that spring breakers can save more
than 50% on airfare if they change their travel dates by a day or two. For
instance, students from Georgetown University can score a roundtrip flight
from Washington, D.C., to Fort Lauderdale on March 2-6 for only $171; a 52%
savings compared to March 2-10 itineraries.

"Moving your preferred travel dates by one or two days is key to securing
low-cost fares," said Warren Chang, vice president and general manager,
Fly.com. "Airfares can change from one day to the next but we have found that
consumers can save hundreds of dollars when they pick the right day to
travel. Because Fly.com Fare Calendars identify where and when it is cheapest
to fly over a 90-day period, they are a perfect tool for last-minute spring
break getaways."

Other popular spring break destinations revealed through the Fly.com study
include Honolulu and San Juan, Puerto Rico. San Francisco and Los Angeles
also rank highly with those flying from the East Coast. New Orleans is only a
favorite with spring breakers flying from Philadelphia, Detroit and New York.

Fly.com used data collected from more than 2 million user searches and
extracted domestic and international flights with travel dates between Feb. 23
– March 30, 2013 for major college towns in California, Massachusetts,
Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C. This information
was then correlated against Fly.com Fare Calendars pricing on Feb. 26 for the
same travel period.
