I either need a flight to Florida, anywhere, anytime or the hostel in Fort de France. I have very limited internet time, could someone help? I am in the job from hell and need to get out. THanks so much!

http://www.mobissimo.com/travel/results_ai...bc251c&seqNum=1

The cheapest I can find is $529(£297.50)
A random date:

1.
Air France #3940
Depart: Fort-de-France--October 24--2120
Arrive: Pointe-A-Pitre--October 24--2155
Airbus Industries A320 Jet
35 Minutes

2.
American Airline #5411
Depart: Pointe-A-Pitre--October 25--1410
Arrive: San Juan--October 25--1558
Atr Turboprop Turboprop
1 Hour, 48 Minutes

3.
American Airlines #1522
Depart: San Juan--October 25--1825
Arrive: Miami--October 25--2100
Boeing 757 Jet
2 Hours 35 Minutes


It's the cheapest way out that I can see, if you want it go to this website: http://www.ebookers.com/afo/flights/step3....Rn8AAAEAAHEFhnw

You can change the dates and stuff too. The first link will help also, change the date to the first link too and see what it comes up with if you want to leave sooner.

Good luck!!!!

Thanks SOSOSO much for the help. I ended up going to a travel agency in Martinique to get home, because I couldnt get on the internet. Thanks again!

SV, So obviously 2 years ago I never saw your post. The au pair thing was a bust. The woman (mom) was nuts and hit her kids and didn't pay me correctly. I ran out of dough so I had to leave. Plus I couldn't stand to be in a house (well, I wasn't in the house, I had a room in the garage) when she treated her kids so poorly. And to top it all off, her dog jumped over the fence (once) and she took him to the pound. It was just a lot of things that made me crazy. But even if I wanted to stay I couldn't. She didn't pay me what my contract said so I just started racking up the credit card debt...

I don't think everyone's au pair experience would be like this, I just had bad luck I think

This community is so great and I appreciate all the advice I have gotten over the years. Obviously when I started this thread I was in a panic and it was nice to know you guys are there for everyone. I am trying to get some more travelling under my belt so I can help out too!
