Be flexible on departure times and days to save money. Travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Saturdays and remember that staying over on Saturday night may offer the best pricing.
Subscribe to special e-alerts offered by various online travel sites. Many sites allow you to receive fare information to and from any city or weekly updates for your favorite destination.
Take advantage of last minute travel deals. Most airlines offer specials that are typically released mid-week for travel during the upcoming weekend.
Here are a few more tips to help you on your way:
Book Early: The earlier you search for your airfare, the more likely you are to receive a discounted rate.
Pack Light: The lighter you travel, the more money you could save as many airlines charge a fee for checked bags. Be sure to check with your airline before packing regarding any restrictions on weight or bag size.
Think 3-1-1: TSA restricts carry-on liquids, aerosols, creams and gels to 4 ounces (3) or less per bottle. Liquids and gels must be placed in a one quart-sized (1) clear, plastic, zip-top bag. Only one (1) bag is permitted per passenger. When in doubt, put your liquids in checked luggage.
