Some people go to extremes to save on airfare.
They book trips with six-hour layovers. They take off and land from obscure airports. They set alerts so that every device they have buzzes whenever a bargain flight crops up.
Super savers refuse to book tickets over the weekend when prices are slightly higher on average. And they master clothes-folding tricks so complex they can fit a week’s wardrobe into a “personal item” to avoid baggage fees.
But not everyone has the patience or organizational skills to adopt these pro tips. I don’t, and I’m a pro. And as such, it is my professional opinion that you can save just as much money (plus lots of time, and potentially your sanity) by simply improving your online booking game, mostly on the sites you already use.
