Finding last minute cheap flights to Boston
First, flexibility is key when looking for last minute flight deals, and flights to Boston are no exception.

Also know that many airlines looking to fill seats on flights at the last minute will post Web-only weekend fares around midweek.
Travel aggregators like Orbitz.com and LastMinuteFlights.com are of course a must when searching for last minute airfare. Some aggregators even include special search tools for those looking for a flight at the last minute. Along with Orbitz, travel aggregator Expedia.com has such a tool to aid you in your search for cheap last minute flights to Boston.

As you're likely in a hurry to find the cheapest tickets possible, you can't waste your time making poor bids at Priceline. The best tactic is to find out what prices other travel sites are listing for both last minute flights and flights that leave in three or more weeks from the current day. Usually by bidding slightly more (roughly 10 to 12 percent more) than the advance flight price, you'll be successful in your Priceline bid.
