The Chicago Tribune shook down a travel expert from American Express and uncovered ten dirty little secrets to getting deals from the airlines. Some highlights:
• Ever flown first-class? Me neither, but there are plenty of ways to do so without paying more. Last-minute tickets (especially international) as well as booking through travel agents are a couple ways where you won’t pay a penny more for the upgrade.
• Book over the holidays and save up to 20%. I guess the airlines are in a festive mood? Or they’re just trying to make up for the inevitable drop in sales post-holiday.
• Check out round-trip prices even if you’re flying one-way. Airlines hate booking one-way, so oftentimes you’ll slash the price by over half even if you’re not using the return ticket.
Nice! I've definitely found the holiday booking tip to be true. Excited to try out the others.
