Are you specifically referring to flying to the philipines?

In that case I would understand your question.

For others, some people live an hour or less away from each other and just need to drive across the border.

Some other other routes are less than half of that.

 

So it really depends on what the route is.

I been flying to see my fiancé in the Palawan Philippines about every 4 months from Arizona. I watch for deals on Southwest Airlines to get me to LAX. Keep an eye out for specials. Also leaving in the middle of the week is cheaper. The other thing I do is use a cheaper local airline for my flight from Manila to Palawan. So that saves some too.

I know what you mean, believe me......Long distance relationships are tough.  I hope you complete your visa journey as quickly as possible.

It depends on the location and the situation. For example, I used to live in the Middle East. My wife will visit me every 3 months. Ticket prices were between $650-850. Sometimes we will split the cost. When she is there we will stay in my place with my family.

You have to set priorities as stated earlier. How much do you send a month if you don't mind me asking? What places are you at for tickets? Because if you buy a ticket in advance for a non holiday then it is considerably cheaper. What airport are you flying from?
