We decided pretty much at the last minute to go away for our anniversary. Three weeks prior we made our decision that we wanted to visit Charleston, South Carolina. And then I saw how close Savannah was and threw it in for good measure…
April 23rd I bought our airline tickets to fly out on May 8th. 16 days before travel is not how I usually do things, I am a planner and this was stressing me out! Flying on short notice over Mother’s Day weekend was not helping the airfare costs in our local area. I finally found tickets with flight times that worked for us from Midway to Charleston and back. (And they did not use up our whole tax refund in the process, a plus!)
Southwest 3:55pm nonstop to Charleston – $209 each
Delta 12:33 Flight from Charleston to Detroit to Midway – $144 each
National Car Rental – $122.10 – a Hyundai Sonata
Country Inn and Suites – North Charleston – $0 – 2 nights on points
Country Inn and Suites – Savannah Historic District – $0 – 2 nights on points
Foley House Inn – $199.20 – Our anniversary splurge!
Not too bad considering our hotel nights were free on points. I think if I had booked airfare a couple of months out we could have done better on the price. I was pleased with the rental car costs at $122 for the area. All in all I was happy with the costs, and we loved the Foley House Inn.
