Cheap airfare strategies

Some of these simple airfare strategies will help you save money while you travel.

Even though finding good airfare deals has become easier, there are some ways to narrow your search and find those even better deals.

Check out FrugalMonkey’s summer strategy for cheap flights and air travel.

Right now you can find incredible international and domestic flight deals. But consider the simple equation that the further you fly, the more expensive the flight will be. That’s why if you live on the East Coast, you can fly to Greece for less and if you live on the West Coast, you can travel to Anchorage, Alaska and Hawaii on extremely low airfares. It’s because proximity to your location will inevitably affect your travel costs. Consider this when planning your next vacation and you will find the really cheap flights. Proximity plays a big part! Flights such as $300 round trip to Hawaii from the West Coast, or mind blowing European rates from New York and Florida are just a few clicks away.

Another thing to do is to hunt for online promotions. Signing up for newsletters, looking for online coupons and simply things like setting an email alert for certain airlines, are excellent ways to find those really good travel deals and cut down on costs.

You should also consider the time of year when you travel. Flying during high season will cost you potentially hundreds of more dollars than if you fly during the low season. One great trick is to plan vacations on the cusp of high and low seasons. That way, you can enjoy the low season rates but high season weather and activities will still be accessible. Not only will your airfare be cheaper but, so will hotels, restaurants and local activities.

Lastly, the tried and true way to find the best airfare deals is through travel auction sites. A lot of the sites like Travelocity, Hotwire, Orbitz and Kayak will not only offer airfare discounts, but vacation packages as well. Doing your research through these sites will certainly pay off when your family vacation is hundreds of dollars cheaper at the start!
