Five ways to book flights without going broke
Traveling doesn't have to be as expensive as you think. These tricks can make those usually pricey flights a little friendlier on your wallet.
1. Book on the right day
Tuesdays at 3 p.m. are often best because many airlines announce deals on Monday evenings. By Tuesday afternoon, other airlines are trying to offer better prices than their competitors.
2. Avoid price jumps
3. Fly international airlines abroad
They're often cheaper than domestic flights.
4. Avoid surprise charges
Check baggage fees, weight allowances, seat selection costs and other added add-ons ahead of time.
5. Find hidden deals
Search your destinations with keywords like "promo," "discount," and "coupon code."
