If you really want to save money on domestic and international flights look for promo deals. I know that one is quite obvious, but you would be amazed on some of the price reductions you get from promo deals. The next tip is from my wife who owns a travel agency. If you really want to save money on flights, buy tickets from the direct company, (Jet Blue, Southwest, etc.) instead of using Orbitz, or another online booking site. Those sites have a large mark up. The only problem is you will have to deal with additional or upgrade baggage costs, cancellations, and re-bookings. But the money you could save just may be worth the effort. Any other tips from seasoned travelers???
