- If you're traveling in Europe, try using sites like RyanAir or easyJet. The flights are cheeeap. Sure, you'll be packed like a sardine in an airplane full of sweaty people, and you won't be eating any free peanuts, but hey, the flights are short and it's totally worth it. In my opinion at least.
- In the US, Allegiant is a great budget option. The planes are larger and less sardine-y than their european counterparts, and they often fly into smaller airports, which for me is a plus. No long security lines or crazy airport crowds.
- Kayak has a really cool feature Explore, which allows you to enter your departure city and find the lowest fairs on flights around the world. (Those prices, btw, are round trip! I know. Paris is calling my name.)
- Like I mentioned in an earlier post, European Destinations has some killer deals. In fact, sometimes, it can be cheaper to book an entire vacation with them than to pay for the flights on another site (even a budget site). I really don't know how it's possible, but I promise it's true!
TRAVEL TIP 5: USE BUDGET AIRLINES
To be honest with you, I'm not really sure why people ever pay full price for airfare. There are so many good deals out there.
