7 tips for saving on holiday flying and lodging
Search multiple sites
The cheapest flight doesn't always show up on every website. Expedia, Orbitz, and Travelocity are the biggest online ticket sellers. Sometimes better deals can be found on sites such as Kayak, Hipmunk, AirfareWatchdog, Yapta, FareCompare, CheapOair, Mobissimo, and Fly.com.
Some airlines, such as Southwest, aren't included on many of these sites. Most airport websites list the airlines serving them. Look there to make sure you aren't missing a carrier.
