10 Ways to Save Money This Summer #7
Flight, Meet Budget
Summer flight-deals abound. But, how can you make sure youâ€™re saving the max? First, opt to have your budget determine where you go and when. Kayak.com/explore letâ€™s you enter your flying budget, preferred locations (worldwide) and flight times, then shows you just where you can go on what dates for your money. If youâ€™re flexible on travel days, take advantage of Googleâ€™s Itasoftware.com where you enter your desired airports to see what days on the calendar are cheapest to fly. One trip from New York to California showed me $380 on a Sunday, but $611 the day before, and $469 for flying the day after. Twenty-four hours means some serious savings!
