So here is my story. My brother is going to having his first child in less than a month. I need to be there 8 days after the birth for the bris, but obviously I don't know when that is going to be. So just wondering if anyone has any suggestions out there on how to go about buying plane tickets when I don't know when I'm going to be traveling. Should I just wait until the birth to buy plane tickets and pay the price? Should I buy them now and try to transfer them when the time comes? Anyone have any comments about travel insurance? Thanks in advance for any info you can provide. And yes, I am freaked out about becoming an uncle, but that's besides the point.
