Finding summer travel airfare deals

Updated:

It's not too late to book a cheap flight for your summer vacation!

One way to save on airfare is to book in advance.  Experts say the best time is about 21 weeks prior, but that may be too late for most of you.  Here are some other tips:

  • Be flexible about your travel dates
  • Leaving on a Tuesday is much cheaper than on a Friday
  • Check out airline consolidator web sites, they buy the tickets in bulk and give great prices
  • Research the hubs -- it's usually cheaper to fly to an airline's major hub airport
  • Clear your internet browser's cookies -- if you're searching for tickets online, the airlines will monitor your search history so they give you a price and if you don't book right away and come back later, you may notice the price went up.
