Tips for finding cheap airfares

1. Airlines usually reload their computers at midnight, so as soon after that as possible is a good time to shop online for low cost seats that folks might have reserved but not paid for.

2. For international flights between major cities, it's hard to beat the price of flying courier - often half or less than regular fare. Of course, some restrictions apply. Click here to learn more details about flying as an air courier.
Imagine flying to exotic destinations all over the world, but paying 50% or less regular airfare costs. Once in a while you might even get an overseas flight completely free. It sounds too good to be true, but air couriers get these kinds of deals all the time, and the best news is, you too can easily join their happy numbers.

3. When one airline announces a sale to a particular destination, chances are the others will soon follow suit, so be on the lookout and call or click around.

4. Seniors should ask about domestic airfare coupon books. Several airlines offer this option of discounted fares that are bought as a block of 4 coupons. Some airlines also offer this option to students.

5. Use the internet to search out last minute bargain weekend fares. Most airlines' websites have a place where drastically reduced weekend fares are available. Start checking on Wednesday for the weekend ahead.

6. When flying in the US, some of the least expensive flights are available on the smaller airlines which are subsidiaries the major airlines, for instance Delta Express and Metro-Jet.

7. If you can't find an inexpensive flight to the city you want to go, it's often cheaper to fly to a nearby city and then catch a low cost connecting flight to where you really want to be. Depending on the distance, you might also be able to hop on a quick train or bus.

8. Smart travelers know how to take advantage of overbooking. By volunteering your seat when a flight is overbooked you can earn free flights and often even cash from the airline. If you don't absolutely have to be there on time, volunteer to give up your seat, if it becomes needed, when you check in for your flight. Monday morning and Friday afternoon flights are the most likely to be overbooked.

9. When traveling to Washington DC, always compare prices for flying into nearby Baltimore instead, it's almost always much less expensive.

10. When flying into New York City, be sure to compare prices for flying into nearby Newark, New Jersey instead.

11. When flying to Los Angeles, be sure to compare prices for flying into nearby Orange County, Burbank or Ontario (California) airports.

12. When flying to London, be sure to compare prices for flying into nearby Birmingham instead.
