Book on Tuesday at 3pm
Often airlines will have a policy to allow you to get a refund within 24-hours of booking. If this is the case, then you can potentially save by checking the price again for your travel booking within 24 hours. If the price has gone down then you cancel and rebook at the new lower price. Just be sure to check for this policy before banking on this tip.
Choose by Budget not by Destination
Using a website such as kayak.com means that you can check multiple fares all within your pre-set budget. Never exceed your vacation budget again, by narrowing down where you go by price instead of first picking a destination and then finding out the price.

Become a Frequent Flyer
Sign up for a frequent flyer programs and reap the benefits of seating upgrades, and free airfares. Be careful though, as these programs are designed to keep your loyal to one airline, which can blind you to other deals.
Fly Out Early
The earliest flights departing in the morning are the cheapest. The added benefit here too, is that you won’t have to fight traffic getting to the airport and this option might not be that much of an inconvenience if you stay overnight at a hotel the night before departure.
Take a red-eye
Book 6 weeks in advance
Airlines do not want to condition passengers to book at the last minute and they usually do not want to cannibalize the sales for the next season, so the sweet spot for booking seems to fall around 6 weeks.
