Cheaping On Airfare

Check out this story on Yahoo! about how to find the cheapest airfare. With gas prices soaring, cheap travel is going to become harder and harder to find. And I don’t know what we’ll do if we can’t get to an H&M!

Since the Cheaping Girls heart discounted airfare, we thought we’d pass the main points of the article along:

1. Fly during the slowest days of the week – Tuesday and Wednesday are the slowest flying days of the week for business travel so demand is low, and so are the fares.

2. Fly during the slowest time of the year – Traveling anytime between Labor Day and Thanksgiving for the best deals.

3. Fly to popular destinations at unpopular times – Hey, even though Hawaii in January might sound nice, the weather is actually better there in the summer too.

4. Buy during the cheapest times of the day – Early morning is the time to buy.

5. Buy a travel package, even if you don't need it – packages are sometimes cheaper than the airfare alone. We’ve never looked closely at a package, but are willing to now.
