Saving On Airline Flights

Posted on April 13th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

Summer is almost here and that means travel! Sometimes air travel may be the less expensive route compared to driving (and certainly faster). Here are a few tips to help find you the cheapest flights.

1. Choose a red eye, early or late flight. Most people don’t like those times so they aren’t in high demand. Less demand, cheaper flight.

2. Book on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Saturdays. These tend to be cheaper to fly days.

3. Try the low cost airlines like Alligient, JetBlue, Spirit Airlines or Frontier. We were able to get round trip tickets for two for $250 total cost. The only thing that’s hard about these airlines is they usually only fly on certain days and only to and from certain cities. But if you can figure out how to make it work, do it! Also, watch all the fees they tack on. Most are optional, so make sure you decline them all to keep the cost down.

4. Try a travel agent. The days of travel agents are not over. They have to compete now with websites that offer great deals, so don’t discount them. Call around and see what they can do. There is usually no cost for their service and could save you some money.

5. Find travel miles. I had a friend who needed to get somewhere the other day. He asked on Facebook if his friends had any travel miles and sure enough he got enough donated miles that he got a free ticket. Sure it’s a long shot, but it could happen! If they aren’t using them, you might as well.

Do you have any tricks to finding cheap airline tickets?
