Go Undercover

No, you’re not crazy when you see the price of the ticket increase every time you search. We’ve already established this in the beginning of the article.

The cookies in your browser are reset every time you open an incognito window. You start from a clean slate each time and as said before there are no booby traps waiting for you.

Pick The Cheapest Day To Fly

There is a lot of controversy when it comes to pinpointing the cheapest day to fly. Some experts say that Tuesday is the cheapest day to fly, and others turn their noses up and call this a myth.  Instead of telling you to book your flight on a Tuesday, we’re going to tell you the smart thing to do. When you’re searching for cheap flights, do search for a flight on Tuesday and every other day of the week too for that matter. Generally, weekdays are supposed to be cheaper so go through multiple days and dates, then pick the one that actually shows you is the cheapest. Also, be flexible when choosing a date, because that always helps. Most people want to fly out on a weekend and that is bad, bad move. You’ll only find escalated ticket prices on a weekend.

Don’t Be Scared Of Budget Airlines

The funny thing is people who are actually on a budget tend to shy away from budget airlines. According to them budget airlines aren’t up to their standards. Why not pick a carrier that is actually catering to your needs, and your need is an inexpensive airline ticket. Some budget airlines don’t offer “free” food or drinks, but hey, food and legs space equals a higher priced ticket.  Our favorites are AirAsia, JetStar and Spirit Airlines. They have quality service and a budget friendly price.
