We have finally decided on Jamaica (first time) and have an acceptable deal on air for Jamaica. But now there are no Couples deals for March. We'd like to go to CN or 2nd choice CSA. Current rates are just too high for our budget, with the crazy price of air.
Has anyone booked air before they find a deal on the hotel?
March being prime season, is it likely prices will go down. I keep watching hte "Wednesday deal" but it's never for CN, nor for March. Any advice?

Are you able to go in April instead? I was initially looking at March too and ended up pricing it out for each week beginning at the beginning of March. I noticed there was a good drop off the first week in April and an even larger one the second week. So, we're going in April. I couldn't justify not saving the money; it was a large amount. Though if you don't have that flexibility, you don't. March is peak season still. And I think as of 10/30, prices will only go up. Don't quote me as I didn't really pay a whole lot of attention to the details of the specials, but I think we are still in the time where you can get 2010 early booking deals???
Sign up for the Wednesday Couplicious emails where they send you the weekly special, and give you until midnight to book. We knew we were coming to Jamaica so we booked the air first. If you have your mind set on Jamaica go ahead and book the air.
The cheapest travel time is end of August to end of December with the holidays being highest. As someone else posted, rates do drop in April fro April to August but the savings is nit as significant.
Peak travel time is Jan thru April, so the rates will be highest.
If you can wait until later in the year, the savings will be higher.
Your other option is to wait for the Secret Rendezvous for March. You don't get choice of resort but the saving is great.
