Smart Money Saving Tips on Airfare
The best way to find the lowest airfare is "first, know what good price is" and "shop around". When you shop around remember these bargain tips. Here are some practical rules to consider when you want to find cheap airplane tickets...

Book your airplane tickets as far ahead as you can. The real cheap discount airline tickets often sell out very quickly. You might have to pay double the price if you book only a couple of days before your departing day. 21-day or 14-day advanced purchase is a good practice. You may be able to save significantly by booking 21-day advance than booking at the last minute. Remember, last minute shoppers are usually business travelers who are willing to pay much higher price for their seats.

Stay over Saturday night. The best deals for your airplane tickets are usually limited to travel on certain days of the week. You may be able to save some money by staying over a Saturday night. Why? Many business travelers return in the same week or on weekends, usually on Saturday, at the latest. By avoiding times that business travelers prefer, you may save a lot. For example, departing on Monday and returning back in the same week such as on Thursday, Friday or Saturday may cost more than returning on Sunday. You may save even more by returning on Monday rather than returning on Sunday. So, the rule is stay over Saturday night or even the entire weekend. Also, if you are departing on weekends and coming back on the following weekdays, make sure to compare airfares for Saturday departure and Sunday departure. You may be surprised to find Saturday departure is less expensive in some cases. Again, the rule is staying over Saturday night.

Use off-peak flights and travel on weekdays. Lowest fares are usually found in mid-week days such as Tuesday or Wednesday when the traffic is light. This is because most leisure travelers like to get away on weekends. For example, departing Wednesday and returning on the following Wednesday may cost significantly less than Sunday-Sunday round trip. Off-hour flights such as late night or very early in the morning departure may also help. Also fare prices tend to go lower in off seasons. Typical off seasons are mid-January through March and October through mid-December except for thanksgiving weekend. During holiday periods fares are expensive. However you might be able to get a discount airplane tickets if you fly on the holiday itself (e.g., Christmas Day).

Use alternate airports and routings. In a large metropolitan area, the fare could depend on which airport you use for both departure and arrival. Make sure to include all the small local airports when you shop around. Some of these smaller airports are some times located conveniently closer to the metropolitan area. One such example is Midway vs. O'Hare airports in Chicago area. So, to get the lowest fare, find out about alternate airports and routings and be flexible with your scheduling.

Round-trip tickets vs. one-way ticket. If you are going to buy only one-way ticket, always look into round-trip tickets too. Sometimes round-trip airfares are simply cheaper. Check if there is a promotion.
