MO Aitoft Evening Telegraph Monday, Dec. 28, your money By ftEf Eft WEAVER 1. A. Times Syndicate Next April l, international airlines aim to cut out some of their best vacation bargains. If you want to grab one of these bargains before they're Shut off — start planning now. There are other bargains that can match those being discarded by the airlines but you have to know where to find them. Here's a guide: BIT Flights: Airlines flying to Europe will soon close out their Bulk Inclusive Tour (BIT) flights. You can still get one of these up to March 31 by inquiring through a travel agent or an airline that flies to Europe. For example, $284 gets you a. two - week "Theater Package" which includes air fare from New York, hotel with breakfast, tickets to London's best plays and musicals. To figure prices from cities other than New York, Use Roundtrip "Discover America" fares. Examples: Flying from the Chicago area you would add approximately $100, making the total tirp $384; from the West Coast, add $200. Use this method to compute all European fares outside of New York. .There are also BIT "Car Tours" where you fly to, say, Paris, Brussels or Amsterdam for $285. This includes air fare, one night in a de luxe hotel, use of a car for two weeks (unlimited mileage) and 13 nights in a guest house. The"guest house" is a gimmick to get around international air agreements which insist that all BIT flights include ground accommodations. They're often hard to reach and few travelers use them. It's more convenient to just throw away guest house coupons. AfteF April l, ;J& airline bargains ^<$|t 4 ,, ._ Group Inclusive Tbur§^(0IT)i In comparison with-the'tour packages mentioned above, GIT prices will cost from $75 to $105 more than BIT flights. Supplemental: There are supplemental airlines that do not fly specific routes on a scheduled basis. They do not belong to the International Air Transport Assn. (IATA) which fixes prices for most scheduled, international airlines. The supplemental are, however, certified by the Civil Aeronautics Board. Because they're not IATA members, supplemental can cut air fares to as low as one - half those charged by scheduled airelines. Here are some examples: Round • trip jet fare on a supplemental from New York to Mexico averages $120 (compared with $240 scheduled airline excursion fare); San Francisco • Tokyo is $300 (compared with $614 excursion fare). Also, supplemental can provide shorter, packaged vacations for those who can't spend the two to three weeks required in airline BIT or GIT tours. From the East Coast, you can get a supplemental 8-day tour to Malaga, Spain, for $190. This includes air fare, hotel and some meals. You can get a 4-day trip to Nassau, Bahamas, for $99, including hotel and some meals. Supplemental fly from air terminals all over the United States. To find names and addresses for supplemental airlines that might be flying to a country you want to visit, write to National Air Carrier Assn., 1730 M. St., N. W,, Washington^ D. C. 20036. Ask to be put on the sup- plementals' mailing lists. Icelandic's deal: Another non - IATA member is Icelandic Airlines which, unlike the supplemental^ flies a regularly scheduled jet route from New York to Luxembourg via Iceland. Icelandic's GIT fare to Europe is $195, round • trip — cheapest on the Atlantic. Icelandic has a two • week Swiss Alps Ski Tour for $285 which includes airfare from New York to Luxembourg, 12 njghts with breakfast and dinner at a good, legitimate Swiss guest house (three to six in a room, aormitpry style). Icelandic also owns International Air Bahama (UrUne which flies to Luxembourg from Nassau for : j«»a • trip.
