- Don't be afraid to mix things up. If that first search doesn't yield an affordable fare, try picking a few different dates for potentially better results. Also, look for early morning or late evening flight times that tend to be less expensive. Sometimes, flying out on one airline and back on another will result in a cheaper fare than flying round-trip on a single airline.
- Try Name Your Own Price®. Even for the peak summer season, priceline.com has tickets available at savings of up to 50% off published fares. With Name Your Own Price® tickets, travelers can begin their trips anytime between 6:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. and there may be up to one connection each way. Visit http://www.priceline.com/flights/ and click on the link to use the service.
- Pack as lightly as possible, then weigh and measure all baggage. Some airlines charge up to $30 or more for a checked bag and $40 or more for an overweight/oversize bag – and that's each way. Check your airline's maximum requirements for checked and carry-on bags to make sure you won't incur extra fees.
- Need a rental car? Bundle it into your airfare. Priceline.com's airline ticketing service lets passengers add a rental car to their trip, often at savings of up to 40% over published rental car rates. Watch for the special rental car offers when booking your airfare. Or book a car separately at http://www.priceline.com/rentalcars/.
- Use Express Deals(sm) for discount hotel rooms.
