10 Ways to Save Money This Summer #7
Flight, Meet Budget
Summer flight-deals abound. But, how can you make sure you’re saving the max? First, opt to have your budget determine where you go and when. Kayak.com/explore let’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 you’re flexible on travel days, take advantage of Google’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!
