For most domestic flights, you’ll want to start looking 1 – 3 months before you need to travel for the best deals. International is more like 2 – 8 months out.
Travelocity is another company that allows you to enter the days you plan to travel and get back a list of prices in order of least to most expensive of the major airlines.
TRY TO BE FLEXIBLE
If you are willing to be flexible with your dates, you can sometimes get flight vouchers if the airline has overbooked your flight.
SAVE ON LUGGAGE
Not only is avoiding checked bags a great way to save on airline travel, it is also a great way to save time since you won’t have to wait at the baggage terminal.
