Airlines Are Having a "Super Sale" on Durango Travel

Posted on Wed, Apr 25, 2012

Both Frontier and American Airlines just announced a fare deal that is more than fair.

Can you believe only $59 one way to/from Denver?

But of course there are restrictions and days of the week to travel, but call us and we'll help customize your trip.  We can always add on the Best of the West or the WTR Overland to the Ranch Stay or customize your stay with the dates you have after booking a great fare. 

Sounds too good to be true, we'll yes it is "kind of".  You have to book by tomorrow...

Most fares are for early summer travel. 

Now, here is the advice from someone who knows (most of the time)... me - Sandy. I have been enjoying the tourism industry with guests and clients from around the world for many, many years.  If you come to the ranch I'll tell you how long... 

This is the time of the year that we see the airlines waving a short lived "Super Special", then pull it, then post another with slightly different rules.  Historically, the end of April and beginning of May is the best time to purchase your summer vacation tickets, but you have to be diligent in looking to find the best fares.

As you may have heard, Tuesday/Wednesday are the best days to search for the best fares, and you need to be flexible with your dates and if you see it, book it - it won't be there long. 

As always if you need help or advise please call me. 

We'll you may have read my other blog post about American Airlines.  I had apprehensions about if they would continue their service to Durango this summer as in the past AA had cancelled the route.  

After consulting with other Durango travel professionals and AA, I think American is going to be a great option for our friends in Texas and stay for most of the summer.  We do have several guests already booked on the Dallas/Durango/Dallas non stop flight with perfect arrival and departure times for staying at the ranch.   

One more thought.  I don't get to write often - so when I do I like to jabber.  Have you called the ranch lately to find out about booking a week in June - it's a special surprise - if you have kids

This time of year the office is open from 9am to 5pm MST, Monday through Friday.  Please if you get the anwering machine, leave us a message and we'll be sure and call you back.  Call (800) 52-Ranch or (970) 247-0722.  We do monitor the messages 7 days a week and will call you back even after "office" hours.  Thank you!

See ya soon!

American Airlines Now Serving Durango!

Posted on Wed, Mar 02, 2011

On June 9th, 2011 American airlines will start non stop service between Dallas Ft. Worth, Texas and Durango Colorado uisng a 50 passenger regional jet and operated by American Eagle. 

We at WTR are very excited for our Texas friends and others using DFW as a connection city.  

We believe this new flight option will also benefit our international guests.  We found that international guests from Paris and Munich have better connection times and pricing when flying into Durango. 

Flights depart DFW daily at 925am, arriving into Durango at 1025am with the return flight leaving Durango at 11am and arrival back in DFW at 155pm.  This is just about perfect for our guests staying at the ranch! 

Don't forget we provide round trip airport transfers for only $35 per person.
