When it comes to booking travel plans, a little effort can produce a lot of savings. Mystufflostandfound.com has prepared the following guide to finding the cheapest flights.

BE FLEXIBLE
1-Early morning flights are often the cheapest available. The next cheapest flight times tend to be during or after lunch and at the dinner hour.

2-When beginning an Online search, don’t specify departure times, this will reveal the time of day that really is the cheapest to fly.

3-Departing on Wednesday, Tuesday then Saturday (in that order) typically result in the best fares.

4-Off season flights, avoiding Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving, or Fourth of July are significantly less expensive.

5-Flying into nearby secondary airports on Budget Carriers can often save more than the cost of the rental car needed to get to the final destination.

6-One-stop flights and One-way tickets can be a bargain.

WHERE TO SEARCH
1-Aggregator websites like Kayak.com, CheapOair.com, expedia.com and travelocity.com can efficiently reveal low cost fares.

2-Check smaller, low cost airlines individually, many are not included on aggregator search sites.

3-Use free alerts sites like AirfareWatchdog.com. to get notified when prices fall.

4-Clear computer cache and cookies between airline searches, otherwise old prices sometimes display instead of updated prices.

5-Check the classified section of local newspapers. Airlines sometimes run ads for cheap flights out of local airports on short notice.

6-Airlines have been experimenting with blasting fares via social media. Check Airline Facebook and Twitter accounts.

WHEN TO SEARCH
1-Studies reveal that in general the “magic window” tends to be between 3 and 6 weeks before departure. Earlier than that there is not much movement in prices and later fares tend to go up not down.

2-Many Airlines release bargain tickets first thing in the morning, often on Tuesday. They may be snatched up by later in the day so the “early bird” rule applies here.

3-Fares tend to be highest on the weekend.

4-Keep checking fares after you book. According to Department of Transportation regulations, tickets can be canceled within 24 hours of purchase without paying a fee or penalty. If fares drop the day after purchase, cancel and buy at the new lower fare.

USE PERKS
1-Airline rewards programs and credit cards are a great way to get free flights, upgrades, checked bags and priority boarding.

2-For students, there are many discounts available. Check out statravel.com for deals on student tickets.

3-Most airlines have special offers for companies such as Amazon, Apple, Best Buy, and Target that earn miles with each purchase.

4-Use a credit card that offers bonus points redeemable for travel expenses. Use the card whenever practical to rack up points.
