Q. We are having a family reunion of over 25 people all flying from Newark to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Do the airlines give any type of discount for groups? Our trip is July 2015. Should we book now?
A. As to your first question, yes indeed, airlines have group travel desks that arrange travel and give discounts. Call your airline's toll-free number to see if your group qualifies. As to when to buy, fares to Puerto Vallarta rarely go on sale but you'll save money if you fly midweek. If you see a fare under $450 round-trip from Newark, you might want to jump on it.
