in Travel News

Finding cheap flights might be easier than it was a few years ago, but a lot of people get caught watching great deals on airfare pass them by. Don’t be one of them! There are so many tips and tools to finding cheap travel that if you can implement just a few of them, you might walk away with hundreds of dollars saved.

If you haven’t been Dinged you might want to start. Ding is an online feature from Southwest Airlines that allows you to sign up (for free!) and receive travel emails regarding the best deals on Southwest. It will send you emails when they are having their famous, One Day Only sales, in addition to special discounts on cities you wish to be informed about. It is a great feature for finding special discounts online.

The good news is that Ding isn’t the only one of its kind. Delta and United for example, have similar programs. This means by taking the time to sign up for just a few emails each week, you will be first to know of the week’s best travel deals.

Another great way to save money on travel is by utilizing sites like Orbitz, Expedia and Travelocity. However, we suggest you take these airfare sites one-step further. Sometimes the airfares listed aren’t the cheapest available.

One helpful tool for finding cheap airfares is to use the airlines listed as a starting off point. Go to the specific airlines that pop up after your travel search and search that same flight. You will often turn up even better deals than those listed on sites like Orbitz or Travelocity.

Last but not least, don’t forget easy travel-saving tips like picking flights that fall on the cheapest days of the week. It is always cheaper to travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, so book flights that coordinate with these days if you can. Also, if you can wait until early in the morning or late at night you will often run into cheaper prices online!
