What Can I Do to Get Better Airfare Deals

Finding a Cheap Airfare

Have you noticed that airfare is the most costly part of a family vacation or business trip? I have, and the strange thing is that it shouldn't be when you take into account all of the flight delays, overbookings, hefty fees, and non-snacks, the airlines are serving.

Airfare rates are going to fluctuate throughout the entire day as the supply and demand dictates. According to Gabe Saglie, senior editor at Travelzoo,“Airfare is the most volatile part of traveling compared to the price of hotels or cruises.”

Despite the plethora travel search sites, like Kayak, Trip Mama, and Booking Buddy, and even with all those online travel agencies that are popping up, it's still a very tedious process to find low airfare rates.  “There’s not one place or website where you can find the absolute lowest price,” says John DiScala, editor in chief of “It changes every minute and it takes panera bread coupons for pick 2 time to find the cheapest price.”

We suggest setting up daily price alerts on the travel websites. You'll be stunned at how airfare variesthroughout the day and it will alert you know when those prices drop.

Doing research is a great way to get a cheap airfare.
