cheap air fare

Jump to last reply

http://www.foxbusiness.com/personal-finance/2012/08/30/how-to-get-cheapest-price-on-airfare/

a few questions on the article:

"Prices are at their lowest between 18 to 28 days prior to your trip, she says, and is your magic window to book.
Domestic fares are lowest 21 days before departure"

I havent found that to be true. In fact, I saw no difference in prices if I book 3 months ahead, or 1 week.

"Overnight flights can be good bargains"

sounds good. and you dont lose a whole day in flight.

"Buying two one-way tickets from different airlines may be cheaper than a round-trip ticket"

strange, I have never tried it; but will check it out. Anyone done that?
