Cheap Flights 101: The More You Know, the Better the Deals

cheap flights deals

I can hear you now…

“Why do I need to ‘understand’ airfare, Rick? Why don’t you just tell me when to buy?” But it’s not that simple (nothing about airfare is simple).

Believe me when I say, I would if I could – but like you, I have no crystal ball that determines exactly when to buy airfare to get the best deal. Unlike you, though, I have spent years studying airfare (it’s more interesting than you’d think), so there are things I can tell you.

Like the “hurdles” the airlines set up for you – and how to make all those leaps successfully.

Please check out my “Understanding Airline Ticket Prices: Why Your Seatmate’s Airfare Cost More (or Less) than Yours” – it’s full of news you really can use.

    Rick,
    What do you think of “Allegiant Air”. I understand they have great prices.

    Nicole,

    Great company, one of the only profitable ones during the recession, they specialize in Vegas, Orlando, and Phoenix – they fly off the beaten path smaller cities.

    Regards,
    Rick
