Here are some other tips to follow: -Try and have a Saturday night stay -Leave out of a large airport -Travel on a Tuesday, Wed. or Thursday...because these are the least traveled days..and airlines are trying to fill the flight.
And just to show you how much you can save...we had a travel agent do a cost comparison for a ticket keeping a few of these tips in mind.
Leaving out of Roanke Regional Airport going to Orlando Florida...with a 21 day advance..and a Saturday night stay...was 242-dollars.
But without a Saturday night stay the ticket...jumps to a whopping 862-dollars.

Their C-D just hit record stores this month, and their music is just now starting to hit the airwaves.

Because the quartet is the latest creation of Trans Continental entertainment, ---the powerhouse behind hitmakers

Backsreet Boys and 'N Sync
But this Florida foursome wants to set the record straight, it is not a "boy band." [24;13:02] DRU ROBERTS:WHEN WE GOT TOGETHER AND FORMED...A LITTLE BIT OLDER AUDIENCE, A LITTLE MORE EDGY, PROVOCATIVE AND AGRESSIVE.
Setting the quartet apart from the sea of male acts is its pop sound with a latin twist, C-Note is three quarters hispanic, with a token blond of course.
In fact the group's new video for its debut single Wait Till I get Home was taped in both English and Spanish. [nats of video....] [25:41:12] RAUL MOLINA: YOU HEAR SOME OF THE LATIN MUSIC, AT THE SAME TIME YOU HAVE THE AMERICAN CULTURE'S BEEN LIGETNING TO HERE TOO. [bridge-standup--MELANIE 24:13:02 ]

[26:19:00] BRODY MARTINA:WHEN WE WERE PICKED UP BY EPIC RECORD THEY THE LATIN INFLUENCE, SAW US HITTING AMERICNA FIRST, IT WASN'T REALLY AND OPTION TO GO TO EUROPE OR SOUTH AMERICA FIRST. [NATS- OF CONCERT]
So will C-Note be the next hit machine for the Trans Con Family? Time (and record sales) will only tell.
But with its debut song starting to make waves on the pop charts and a coast to coast summer tour planned with superstar Brandy, the answer is likely to be yes. DAVID PEREZ: IF WE CONCENTRATE ON WHAT WE'RE DOING AND WE PUT IN OUR TIME AND GIVE TO OUR FANS THEY'LL RECEIVE US THE WAY WE WANT TO RECEIVE WE'RE GIVING THEM.
