5 Tips to Get Cheap Flights

May 25, 2009

With so many options for online travel, you need all the help you can get to try and eek out a better price for your airfare. Here are some tips to help you get the best airfare.

  • Early morning and overnight red-eye flights are typically cheaper. Try to seek out airfare at odd hours to get a better deal.
  • Wednesday is usually the cheapest day to fly, but Tuesdays and Saturdays are also relatively cheap. Staying through a weekend also helps lower your cost of airfare.
  • No one likes traveling on holidays. To get a good deal, try traveling on days like Thanksgiving Day or even Christmas Day if your plans allow it.
  • Be flexible with your dates. When searching for airfares, use the option for flexible days.
  • Alternative airports can sometimes reduce the price of your airfare dramatically. For example, instead of Los Angeles (LAX), try airports nearby like Long Beach, Ontario or Burbank. While this won’t always work, it does not hurt to try and I have often seen a 5-10% difference in airfare just by selecting this option.
