Cheap Airfare

Airfarewatchdog

Traveling is expensive with a family of 7!!  I love sites like Priceline for hotels and cars, but haven’t had much luck with airfare. It is almost never cost-effective to fly rather than drive.  BUT recently I have discovered a way to cut back on airfare.

My kids have never flown and they have been dying to!  So, as we began to plan a vacation for the end of this year we started looking at airfare.  I found a TERRIFIC site called Airfare Watchdog.  You can visit this site and put in where you want to fly.  Anytime there is a drop in cost, they will email you to let you know.  We have not purchased tickets yet, but I have seen the tickets drop as much as $75/person.  If your dates are flexible, this is a FRUGALTASTIC way to hit the skies!!!

One of my favorite features is that it also gives you alternatives to your flights.  It might find a good deal at an airport that is a little further from you.  You may fly into DFW instead of Lovefield or LaGuardia instead of JFK….not super inconvenient but it might save you a lot of money.

What do you do to save money on vacations????
