I Wish I Could Find Reasonable Air Fare! Here Are A Few Ideas To Make That Happen!!!

The cost of flying is a little out of control. Actually, some may say it is totally out of control. Fares seem to be changing quicker than the speed of light. A few weeks ago I was checking a flight to the East Coast and every single day the fare changed. Some days it changed over $400 in either direction. Like most, I like a good deal on flights. So here are a few tips that might help:
Recently, I read an article about a few amazing deals:

  • If you subscribed to “news flash” emails from Travelzoo you could have gotten a $9-each-way flight from Boston to New York City.
  • Airfarewatchdog recently highlighted a Los Angeles/Las Vegas fare for $18 round trip.

There are other price-finding sites abound, such as:

  • CheapOair: You can set an “alert” for fares to specific locales.
  • Yapta: This service tracks prices even after you book. If fares drop you’ll be advised how to apply for a refund. This worked for someone on our team and she saved hundreds of dollars on a recent trip!
  • Bing Travel: Microsoft’s search engine combs through more than a billion airfares each day and forecasts whether prices will be going up or down soon. I have never checked this out but it sounds like I need to!
  • Compete 4 Your Seat: Professional travel agents send you their rock-bottom itineraries.

Wow – lots of ideas for sure. Clearly another indication that technology can help you save money!

  • Have you tried any of these sites?
  • What tools are you using to get great deals?
  • Have you gotten great deal recently?

I look forward to reading your comments.
