You want to schedule your dream vacation or weekend getaway but the big question is how do I save? Travel can be expensive if you don't know the secrets to saving money. Frequent flyers can be savvy travelers in that they have information on how to save money as well as the best places to go for a dream vacation or weekend getaway. The tips I will share with you today are 4 of 16 ways to save money on your next trip.
1. The Wednesday night bargain window. On Wednesdays between 12:00 Midnight and 1:00 a.m., most airlines rid their computer systems of deadwood caused by people who reserved lower-cost flights but never paid. You might land a big bargain by booking in the time zone of the airline's home base during this window.
2. Wednesdays are also when airlines offer deep discounts on undersold flights to certain cities for the coming weekend, if you can leave and return on their choice of days.
3. Be flexible with your travel dates. Leaving or returning just one day earlier or later than you'd prefer might save you 25 percent or more. (By the way, staying over Saturday night seems no longer necessary. Don't ask why. Nobody knows.)
4. Reserve as far in advance as possible! 30 days for international flights, and 2-3 weeks for domestic. The closer to your departure date you make the reservation, the more you'll pay.
Beat the booking windows when rates go higher, which open up at most airlines 21, 14, and 7 days before departure.
