How to find the best flight deals

Are mind-blowing flight deals the stuff of travel legend? No, they’re not. They’re real.

Find the best flight deals for your next trip by following these tips:

  • Stay flexible with timing. This is probably the most important part of scoring those cheap flights — because the lowest prices will be during off-peak travel times. If you can fly on a Thursday morning instead of a Friday night, for example, you’re probably gonna save some dough. And if you’re planning a trip to Italy, don’t go in August when much of the country is on vacation — opt for October, a shoulder travel season when the weather’s still good.
  • Stick with budget carriers. Frontier, Sun Country, Spirit and Allegiant consistently offer round-trip flights for less than $100. But keep in mind that you’ll usually need to travel light with budget carriers, since carry-ons usually cost extra.
  • Get creative with layovers. If you’re bowled over by the cost of a direct flight, try booking a couple of one-way fares to get to your final destination. Or you could use a site light Skiplagged, which uses an algorithm to do this for you.
  • Consider a rewards credit card. When I booked a flight from Chicago to visit a friend in the Bahamas, I saved $600 by opening a Delta credit card, and my trip was almost free. Two years later, I still use that credit card, because the miles come in handy when I need to book flights for family weddings and other essential travel that’s less flexible. It’s worth looking into if you’re dropping major moolah on a flight.
  • Sign up for a mailing list. The best flight deals are usually only available for a limited time, so signing up for a newsletter can help you stay up to date. If you’re worried about your inbox overflowing with promotions, consider choosing a travel booking site like Orbitz or Travelocity to comb sales from dozens of airlines and send the best deals your way.
  • Bundle your flight with a hotel. Yup, you really can score discounts when you book a bundle. Try United Vacations, Southwest Vacations or use a booking site like Expedia to see what you can save when you book your whole trip at once. We often see promo codes from United Vacations and Southwest Vacations with up to $600 off per booking when you opt for a package.
Traveling during COVID-19
The CDC continues to advise caution when traveling within or outside the US, However, it no longer requires self-quarantine or a COVID-19 test for fully vaccinated domestic travelers as of April 2021. International travelers need to get tested three days prior to flying out of the US and within three days after returning, even if you are fully vaccinated. It recommends that you delay travel if you’re not fully vaccinated to protect yourself and your family from getting or spreading the virus.

If you’re planning a trip outside the US, bear in mind that many countries have placed restrictions on US tourists. Check the US embassy website for updates before booking international travel.
