Want to get away? Well, as we all know, one of the best ways to escape the boring routine of everyday life is to buy a plane ticket and take off to an unknown destination! Unfortunately, the damage it does to our wallet makes it tough to pull the trigger on a ticket.
If you’re tired of spending top dollar on plane tickets, here are some tips that will help you fly cheaper!
Search for Flights Using Private Browsing
Did you know that airline websites use your cookies to monitor your search activity and often raise prices on tickets based on your internet browsing history? Use a private browsing mode to keep the prices from raising based on this practice.
Buy Tickets on Tuesdays or Wednesdays
Did you know that the cheapest days to buy plane tickets are Tuesdays and Wednesdays? Due to lower demand on these days, airlines often lower the prices of tickets on these mid-week days.
Check Out Google Flights
Google Flights is an awesome tool that helps me to find cheap flights on a regular basis. It gives you all kinds of neat tools like price trends and “explore mode” that helps you look for cheap destinations on the days that you have available for vacation.
Sign Up for Email Lists
There are plenty of email lists and services such as Scott’s Cheap Flights and Jack’s Flight Club that provide a daily email listing current flight deals from a variety of airports, all free of charge! These services are extremely useful for helping to find cheap options.
