Don’t overpay the next time you book a flight. Here are three tips to get the best deal:
– Open a private browsing window. Websites track “cookies,” meaning sites can raise prices on you after you check a particular route multiple times. Or try clearing your cookies.
– Be flexible. Flights that leave on popular weekend days like Friday and Sunday tend to be the most expensive. Try to schedule travel on an off-day like Tuesday.
– Use apps. Rather than searching airline websites, use apps like Hopper and Skyscanner to find cheaper flights and avoid hidden extra charges like booking fees.
