    Hi there Possibly "with own airfare" i.e. you must pay for flight it is not included in the price of the stay.

    Sorry I do not understand what you are asking me "where you got this message"


    Correcting your English it should read "where did you get this message" but I still do not understand.
    Thinking about it w/o could mean.... without

    Re: w/o airfare

    w/o is usually without. It is a common business abbreviation.
    The other meaning with own is still helpful.

    The business intends to state a very low price, by excluding the cost of air fare. Their price is without , which means you're paying your own airfare.
