I found a flight for $775 for my trip.
it’s a round trip departing from Philadelphia going to Amsterdam.
The trip is in May so it is a far way away but it’s the best price i have seen and i don’t want to miss out.
Is that a good price? or will there be better later on?

I am leaving from pa with $8000 for 98 days

That’s a pretty good price for summer these days, especially for a trip of longer than 30 days. There’s a chance that you could find a sale between now and then, but you’d have to watch fares diligently and buy ASAP when there’s a sale. A freak sale might get you that ticket in the $500-600 range (judging by the absolute cheapest spring/summer fares I’ve seen out of PHL recently). However, even winter fares for PHL-AMS are in the mid $700’s, you never know if a sale will materialize, and you’d have to hope the sale fares allow stays as long as yours. You’ll have to weigh the peace of mind that comes with locking in the fare you found and the risk/reward of waiting on a sale. See what Don thinks too.
