here are many factors that affect the price of a plane ticket, such as the destination, the season, the demand, the airline, and the booking site. However, there are also some tips and tricks that can help you save money and find the best deals. Here are some of them.
1. Start looking for domestic tickets at least 6 weeks in advance.
If you’re planning a domestic flight, it’s a good idea to start searching for tickets about a month and a half in advance. Continue checking weekly to find out if tickets get any cheaper up until the point that you make your purchase.

2. Purchase your tickets at least 2 weeks before flying.
The ideal window of time to get your tickets is 2-4 weeks before you’re planning to fly. Most airlines will raise their ticket prices once fewer than 14 days remain prior to the flight.

3. Use price comparison websites or apps.
There are many online platforms that can help you compare prices from different airlines and booking sites. Some of them also offer price alerts, which notify you when the price of your desired flight drops or rises1. For example, you can use Expedia or Trip.com to search for cheap flights.

4. Choose an airline and booking site wisely.
Some airlines offer lower fares than others, especially budget airlines that have no-frills services and charge extra fees for baggage, seat selection, meals, etc.

You can also look for special offers or discounts from certain airlines or booking sites. For example, you can use "Google Flights" to find cheap international flights by following some hacks.

1. Flexible Travel Dates and Times
Flight prices vary significantly based on the day of the week, time of year, and upcoming holidays like Christmas, New Year's Eve, or Thanksgiving. Flights in the middle of the week are often cheaper than those on weekends. Early morning or late-night flights might also offer lower fares.

2. Use Multiple Search Engines
No single search engine consistently offers the cheapest fares. Use a variety of flight comparison websites. Some sites include airlines that others do not, and booking sites often have special deals with specific airlines.

3. Consider Nearby Airports
Sometimes flying out of or into a nearby airport can save you a lot of money. Be sure to factor in the cost of any additional transportation to your final destination.

4. Book Early... But Not Too Early
Booking your flight approximately 2-3 months before domestic travel and 3-4 months before international travel is often the ideal time to get the best rates. However, this is not a hard rule and prices can fluctuate.
5. Set Fare Alerts
Many websites and apps allow you to set fare alerts for specific routes. You'll receive a notification when the price drops, which can help you book at the optimal time.

6. Check for Discounts
Some airlines offer discounts for certain groups like students, seniors, or military personnel. Also, some credit card companies have partnerships with airlines to offer special discounts or rewards.

7. Consider Budget Airlines
Budget airlines typically offer lower fares but with fewer amenities and stricter baggage policies. Make sure to read the fine print for any additional fees that might apply.

8. Be Open to Layovers
Flights with layovers can be significantly cheaper than direct flights. If you don't mind the extra travel time, consider these options.

One of the most important factors to get cheap flights is to be flexible with your travel dates and times. You can use KAYAKs flexible dates feature to compare prices across different days or months.

You can also try flying on weekdays, early mornings, late nights, or during off-peak seasons to avoid high demand and prices.

Another way to find cheap flights is to be flexible with your destinations. You can use Skyscanner’s “Everywhere” search option to find the cheapest places to fly to from your departure city.

You can also look for alternative airports or nearby cities that may have lower fares.

You should also keep an eye for special deals and promotions from airlines, travel agencies, or online platforms. You can sign up for newsletters, alerts, or memberships to get notified of the latest offers and discounts.

You can also use tools like Thrifty Traveler Premium or Scott’s Cheap Flights to get curated deals delivered to your inbox.
If you are willing to fly with budget carriers, you can save a lot of money on airfare. Budget airlines offer lower fares by cutting down on amenities, baggage allowance, and customer service. You can use Skyscanner or KAYAK to filter for budget airlines and compare prices with other options.

However, you should also be aware of the hidden fees and charges that may apply to your booking, such as baggage fees, seat selection fees, or payment fees.

Sometimes, you can find cheaper flights by not flying direct. You can look for flights that have one or more stopovers, layovers, or connections. This can reduce the cost of your ticket, as well as give you a chance to explore another destination.

You can use KAYAK’s hacker fares feature to find two one-way tickets that can save you money compared to a round-trip ticket1. However, you should also consider the extra time, hassle, and risk of missing your connection when booking indirect flights.
