Get cheap flights is not a piece of cake but also not so hard at all.

For frequent travelers, it might quite easier, but for weary ones, there is no real shortcut to finding cheap airfare. As with any purchase, you need to shop around to get the best deal by trying different booking sites, altering your dates and waiting until just the right time to purchase. 

To make it much simpler for you to get cheap flights, let's take a look at some following tips:

1. Buy Early

Particularly during peak travel periods, making reservations late in the game can cost you lots of money. Airline ticket prices typically go up in the last 2 weeks before flying, so if you are planning ahead, try to make the call before this deadline. And if you are traveling abroad, you are recommended to book even earlier (from 3 to 6 months in advance) for the best deals.

2. Buy Late

Sometimes you can buy tickets at the very last minute for a great price (last minute flight) if the airlines have failed to fill all seats in their planes. You can find such fares at specialized sites like LastMinuteTravel.com, or sometimes on airline websites and online flight booking sites such as Expedia. If you can stand the suspense, and if you are flexible with your dates and itinerary, you can find fantastic money-savers to very beautiful travel destinations.

3. Be Flexible

If you live close to more than one airport, check out the airfares from all of the airports nearby. Many online airfare searching engines will ask you if you are willing to depart from or arrive in more than one city. Yes! Also, experiment with different travel dates; shifting your itinerary by a month, a week or even a few days can make a significant difference in fares. You will usually get the lowest fares for travel on some days of the week like Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Start your search by checking out some of the famous online travel providers such as Airfarewatchdog, TripAdvisor Flights or Kayak. Checking all of these sites helps you have you a preliminary idea of which airlines fly your particular itinerary, what the going rate is and which restrictions might apply.
