Q. I haven't been able to find a deal from Orlando to Chicago one-way for holiday travel. Can you help?
A. Peak holiday fares on that route, last we checked, are indeed sky high, but they might come down since there are so many airlines flying the route, so keep checking. Meanwhile, you might consider flying from Orlando to Rockford, IL on Allegiant Airlines. Last we checked, there were $99 one-way fares even on some peak holiday days. Beware, though, of Allegiant's extra fees, including one for booking online! (You can avoid this fee by buying your fare at the airport). Allegiant flies to lots of smaller airports, some of which are near large cities, mostly using nonstop flights.
