Flying During the Holidays? Here’s How to Do It Cheap! [VIDEO]
The most heavily traveled time of the year is coming up fast and these tips will save you money.
It's not too late to get a good deal on flights so, whether you're leaving El Paso to visit family or you're flying family back to El Chuco for those holiday tamales, read this!
- Be Flexible. If you want to fly at the same time everyone else does, like the day before Thanksgiving, you'll pay more. Leave earlier or come back later and save.
- Read the fine print on those super low fares. Many low-cost carriers offer cheap rates but screw you later with extra fees on everything.
- Regarding that last one, pay attention to the major airlines. Many will try to stay competitive by matching those fares without all the B.S, fees.
Early flights are cheaper and there's less chance your flight will be delayed. Switching airports can also save you money and, remember, non-stop flights cost more. Finally, sign up for low fare alert apps like Hopper. They monitor price fluctuations and tell you exactly when to buy so that you get the lowest price.
