The easiest way to save money on airfare is by being flexible — flying on certain days and at certain times can be more affordable, depending largely on supply and demand. However, not everyone has the luxury to schedule so loosely. If you can’t take time off work for a short trip, don’t despair — there are plenty of other things you can do to save money when buying a ticket at any time.
You don’t have to travel often to be a savvy traveler, but you do have to be resourceful about using the tools at your disposal. The internet is a wonderful place for finding bargains, but it can also be used to collect information on your frequent searches, helping companies sell you things — airline companies, for instance, may hike up your ticket price once the data shows that you’ve searched the same flights several times.
