And there's no reason to spend more than you have to. However, there are some common mistakes you may not even realize are costing you extra money. Recognize them, and start saving on your next booking.</p> <h2>1. Revealing Your Browsing History</h2> <p>If you haven't been searching for flights in incognito mode, or at the very least clearing your Internet browser's cache, you may be spending more on flights than you should. That's because flight booking sites often use technology that tracks what its customers (<em>you</em>) have been browsing.</p> <p>That means they know when you've looked at a flight multiple times. Rather than lowering the price to lure you to a final sale, they may raise the price to encourage you to buy before the price goes any higher. You can easily remedy this by browsing in incognito mode or clearing your cache, saving anywhere from $50&ndash;$200 in some cases.

Clear your cache first and buy your ticket second.</p> <h2>2. Buying Your Ticket From a Booking Site</h2> <p>Search engines that aggregate flights from a variety of airlines can be a great resource when you're trying to find the cheapest flight (see tip number eight for a great search engine). However, you need to be aware that some third party bookers will charge you an extra booking fee &mdash; which you can avoid by booking your flight directly through the airline's website.</p> <p>Some small and more obscure airlines may not have a website, in which case you can either call or shop around for a third party booker that doesn't have these fees.</p> <p>Even if the booking engine doesn't list a fee separately in the price breakdown, it may still be jacking the price up. It's always a good idea to refer back to the airline's listing of the flight and make sure that you're buying it from the least expensive website.

Booking to Fly on a More Expensive Day</h2> <p>Another common mistake that people make is forgetting to check flexible dates. Different days of the week usually offer different fares. For example, flights leaving the U.S. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays are the least expensive days to fly, according a study by Fare Compare.</p> <p>If your schedule is adjustable and you're not checking flexible dates, you're probably paying more than you should for your ticket. Prices can vary wildly from day to day for the exact same flight.</p> <h2>4. Flying Into a More Expensive Airport</h2> <p>Some airports cost more to fly into than others, depending on taxes and airport fees. If you're flying into the most expensive airport, you're going to be spending more money on your plane ticket than you have to, and the same is true with respect to the airport you're flying <em>out </em>of.</p> <p>For example, the United Kingdom has an Air Passenger Duty (APD) of $90 for one adult economy traveler to fly out on a long haul flight. If you have the time, it's cheaper to book a short haul flight (with an APD of $16) to a place like Dublin or Paris, then book your long haul from there.</p> <p>In general, it pays to be aware of what your departure and destination airports are charging you to take off or land there. It may require some digging around to find these fees, but doing so could save you money on fees associated with your departure and destination airports, and even those where you have a layover.</p> <h2>5. Forgetting Your Airline Rewards Points</h2> <p>If you travel infrequently, or are a member of a lot of airline rewards programs, it may be easy to forget those piles of frequent flyer miles you've accumulated through flights or <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-best-co-branded-airline-credit-cards?ref=internal" target="_blank">credit card airline rewards</a> programs. The last thing you want to do is let a hefty rewards stash expire simply because you forgot about it. Whether you use a <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/get-started-with-travel-rewards-in-4-simple-steps?ref=internal" target="_blank">rewards-tracking website</a> or an old-fashioned spreadsheet, it pays to keep track of your rewards points and expiration dates. Getting organized can prevent you from missing out on opportunities for free travel.

Missing Out on the Best Sales</h2> <p>How can you find out about the best deals on airfare? Airlines almost always have an email newsletter where they will announce their sales, but if you're not subscribed, you're likely missing out on these deals.</p> <p>It doesn't cost you anything to subscribe to airline emails, and it could save you a lot the next time you're ready to book a ticket.</p> <h2>7. Buying Your Ticket Too Early or Too Late</h2> <p>How early or late you buy your ticket can affect how much you pay as well. According to studies by CheapAir, the best time to book domestic airfare in the U.S. is about eight weeks in advance of your trip. If you can't be that exact, at least try to book within a window of 21&ndash;112 days before your flight, which is when tickets will be at their lowest prices.</p> <p>There's some hype about being able to grab last-minute cheap tickets, but this usually has to do with a quirky sale &mdash; so it's nothing you should count on if you've been planning your trip for a while.</p> <h2>8. Using the Wrong Search Engine</h2> <p>When it comes to paying less for a flight, using the right search engine is a must to ensure you're getting the best prices. You can use the free <a href="https://matrix.itasoftware.com/" target="_blank">ITA Matrix</a>, which has been rebuilt on Google technology, to take advantage of the same software that travel agents often use to book you a flight.

You're already feeling the pinch on your budget as he or she starts their (fingers crossed) four-year career, but there are perhaps a few expenses you may have overlooked during all the hustle and bustle &mdash; like how your little smarty pants will get home during breaks and holidays. To keep these travel costs manageable, consider these inexpensive ways.</p> <h2>1. Cash in Miles for Free Flights</h2> <p>In all the years you've been saving those airlines miles for the vacation of a lifetime, I bet you never thought you'd have to compromise them by bringing your kid back and forth from college for holiday breaks. Yeah, it sucks, but when they graduate and land that high-paying job, they'll totally pay you back&hellip; right?</p> <p>While you hold your breath on that prospect, consider consulting <a href="http://www.rewardexpert.com/">RewardExpert</a>, which helps travelers create easy-to-follow strategies by developing customized points earning plans and maximizing frequent flyer rewards. The service makes it easy to earn free tickets in just a few months, or help you make the most of what you already have.</p> <h2>2. Carpool With Someone Headed the Same Direction</h2> <p>I often carpooled with friends to and from college who lived at least somewhat close to my home. I'd offer gas money for the ride, and my parents would pick me up from their homes so they didn't have to go out of their way to drop me off at mine. Your kids can do the same thing the old-fashioned way by asking their friends for a ride, or &mdash; if they don't have any friends who live within driving distance of where you're from &mdash; suggest that they post an ad on Craigslist or a community or school message board looking for a driver.</p> <p>Alas, if that's too 20th century for them, there's <a href="http://thecollegecarpool.com/">College Carpool</a>, one of a handful of services that allow students to connect with others driving the same direction through private pages for each college. Through forums, students can find available rides, or proactively request one.</p> <h2>3. Enroll in a Car Share</h2> <p>Does your kid prefer to take the wheel, but they don't have a car of their own on campus? Nowadays they can sign up for car-sharing services, which help eliminate the issue of not being able to rent a car from traditional services (like Alamo) that usually require drivers to be at least 25 years old. Car-sharing services like <a href="http://www.zipcar.com/universities">Zipcar</a> and <a href="https://www.enterprisecarshare.com/us/en/home.html">Enterprise CarShare</a> are available to university students, and monthly fees are low. Once registered, students can reserve a car whenever they need one. This is a helpful convenience especially around the holidays when the rest of the family is busy with their own day-to-day concerns.</p> <h2>4. Hop on the Bus</h2> <p>I never took the bus home from college &mdash; that eight-hour ride didn't much appeal to me, plus I had awesome friends who didn't mind giving me a lift &mdash; but when I moved to Manhattan without a car in my mid-20s, I often hopped on a Greyhound to get back to my hometown of Baltimore. It was convenient, fast, and, most importantly, cheap.</p> <p>Thus, if you live a reasonable distance from child's university and they don't mind tight quarters, this may be a good option for you and your family. It's actually a rather relaxing ride once you get situated; most modern bus services, including BoltBus and Megabus, feature free WI-FI, power outlets, and even reclining seats. Smaller-scale regional buses, like <a href="http://www.coachusa.com/info/shortline/ss.studentdiscounts.asp">Short Line</a>, also offer student discounts.</p> <h2>5. Travel by Train</h2> <p>If booking your kid a bus ticket isn't an option, perhaps riding the friendly rails is a more accommodating compromise. <a href="https://www.amtrak.com/student">Amtrak</a> provides service from 500 destinations in 46 states, and it offers a 15% student discount along with the opportunity to earn points toward free travel. Amtrak is the only nationwide rail-service, which means you don't have any other options for train travel, unless you can work your regional lines to your advantage if they exist.</p> <h2>6. Get Creative</h2> <p>You don't always have to choose one option over another. Sometimes you can use a few different methods &mdash; like a bus to a train or a train to a plane, for instance. Look for the best deals among the types of transportation available to you and plan your student's trip home accordingly. It may take some time to plan and settle on the most efficient and cost-effective method, but it's worth it &mdash; especially when you consider how often you may have to do this over and over again in the next four (or five or six) years.</p> <h2 style="text-align: center;">Like this article?

There are ways to get more value out of your miles, though, than just getting a ticket for the first place that comes to mind.</p> <p>For starters, international destinations are a better value. The value of each point rises with the cost of the ticket. For example, an international flight might cost twice as much as a domestic ticket, but the points required to redeem a free flight are only 1.5 times the points for a domestic ticket. For one flight, you might only get a $0.50 per point, but for another, you might get a few dollars per point!</p> <p>Also, award miles value are sometimes counted by region. So if you book a domestic flight, you can still get a good value out of your miles by comparing different destinations in the same region. And don't forget seat availability. It's not a good idea to get your heart set on a location only to discover that there are never any award seats available.</p> <p>If you're counting down the days until you're able to redeem your free flight, here are some often overlooked international destinations that can give you great value for your miles while discovering a new and unique part of the world.</p> <h2>1. Valparaiso, Chile</h2> <p><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/scenic_chile_87675863.jpg" width="605" height="340" alt="" /></p> <p>Valparaiso, referred by those who know and love it as &quot;Valpo,&quot; was once the most important port in South America and is full of recently-renovated 19th century architecture. Many boutique hotels have sprouted alongside new and innovative restaurants. There have been promotions in the past for as little as 30,000 miles.</p> <p>You can fly into Santiago, which is an international hub, and take a 90-minute bus ride to get to Valparaiso from there. Santiago is easily accessible from many hubs in the U.S. such as Los Angeles, Houston, and New York, with plenty of seat availability for those looking to redeem awards.</p> <h2>2. Helsinki, Finland</h2> <p><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/helsinki_finland_scenic_67161215.jpg" width="605" height="340" alt="" /></p> <p>Finnair releases a fair amount of reward seats, especially in the winter, so you're sure to get an authentic colder-weather experience. You can expect to use 20,000 miles in economy or 50,000 in business class with the American Airlines loyalty program. Flights are nonstop from JFK.</p> <p>Of course, if you do travel in the winter months, you'll easily be able to reward yourself for braving the colder temperatures with a soak in the traditional <a href="http://www.visithelsinki.fi/en/see-and-experience/activities-in-helsinki/swimming-and-saunas#/?listing_id=52343&amp;mode=list">Finnish sauna</a>.</p> <h2>3. Copenhagen, Denmark</h2> <p><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/Copenhagen_denmark_35003198.jpg" width="605" height="340" alt="" /></p> <p>This beautiful city in Denmark is easily accessible with Scandinavian Airlines, offering nonstop flights from the east coast (Newark and Washington) to the middle of the country (Chicago) and on the west coast as well (San Francisco). Scandinavian Airlines offers plenty of economy seats for reward mile redemption. If you're looking to fly business class, you can easily find a seat with United.</p> <p>Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark as well as the country's biggest city, with picturesque architecture and many unique, historic sites to visit. It is known for among other things its vibrant design scene and wide offering of innovative dining experiences.</p> <h2>4. Malé, the Maldives</h2> <p><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/maldives_island_scenic_17979750.jpg" width="605" height="340" alt="" /></p> <p>Interested in booking an island getaway? The Maldives are easier to get to than you may think, and you can use your miles to do so. To score the best value use miles from any Oneworld airline. This alliance of 15 airlines includes American Airlines, Japan Airlines, British Airways, and other well regarded carriers. Note that you can also use <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/which-american-airlines-us-airways-credit-card-should-you-get?ref=internal">American Airlines AAdvantage</a> Miles.</p> <p>Just 70,000 miles will get you there and back in economy.</p> <p>In the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Maldives are a series of over 1,000 islands. There is excellent diving and snorkeling, not to mention fantastic, nearly untouched beaches. For a more urban experience, you can check out Malé, the bustling capital.</p> <h2>5. Mexico City, Mexico</h2> <p><img src="http://wisebread.killeracesmedia.netdna-cdn.com/files/fruganomics/u5171/mexico_city_95991235.jpg" width="605" height="340" alt="" /></p> <p>Getting to Mexico City is an easy flight from anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. You can get a nonstop flight from Montreal, Toronto, multiple airports in New York, Las Vegas, or Los Angeles.</p> <p>Southwest Airlines is now serving Mexico and the Caribbean, with a great offer of unlimited reward seats, according to their website.</p> <p>Mexico City is one of Latin America's largest and most vibrant hubs, with a population of over 22 million people and amazing street food (tacos, tlacoyos, tlayudas, and burritos, just to name a few).</p> <p>Beyond the delicious culinary offerings, Mexico City is a center for art and the museums here are world-renowned. Architecturally, the city is diverse and portrays an interesting and unique history, from the Palacio National that houses some of Diego Rivera's most beautiful murals, to Bellas Artes that permanently feature Jose Orozco artwork plus other displays that change over time.</p> <h2>Bonus Tip: Get an Around the World Ticket to See More</h2> <p>Did I say five cities? Well you can actually enjoy your miles in scores more cities around the world instead!</p> <p>Using awards to buy an Around the World ticket is actually becoming quite rare, but there are still some options if you want to book multiple destinations. An Around the World ticket can allow you up to 16 different stops, and it can definitely save you money when compared to booking all of the legs of your trip individually.</p> <p>If you are redeeming with Star Alliance, you can purchase an RTW ticket for 200,000 points.</p> <p>The <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/choose-the-best-travel-rewards-credit-card-with-this-guide?ref=internal">best travel rewards credit cards</a> will offer flexibility and award seats to the destination that you want. A card like the <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/chase-sapphire-preferred-review?ref=internal">Chase Sapphire Preferred</a> will allow you use their travel portal to book with your points as well as transfer points to airline partners to book directly. An <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-best-co-branded-airline-credit-cards?ref=internal">airline credit card</a> would limit you to that particular airline and its partners, but if you have a strong preference for a certain airline and its destination selection meets your needs, then you may be able to build up points faster by being a frequent flyer.

You Can Earn More Miles on the Ground Than in the Air</h2> <p>Even for frequent travelers, most airline miles are earned on the ground, not in the air. That's because <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-best-co-branded-airline-credit-cards?utm_source=wisebread&amp;utm_medium=internal&amp;utm_campaign=travel">airline credit cards</a> award miles based on how much you <em>spend</em>, not how <em>far you fly</em>. That includes nonflying purchases. Use your card to pay for all your expenses and watch your miles add up.</p> <h2>2. You Don't Need an Airline Credit Card</h2> <p>Some of the <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/top-5-travel-reward-credit-cards?utm_source=wisebread&amp;utm_medium=internal&amp;utm_campaign=travel">best travel rewards credit cards</a> aren't airline branded cards, but their <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-best-credit-cards-that-transfer-points-to-airline-miles?utm_source=wisebread&amp;utm_medium=internal&amp;utm_campaign=travel">points can be transferred to the airline miles</a> of your choice. This gives you more flexibility in choosing the card that offers the most points for the category you spend the most in. Choose a card that offers <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/the-5-best-credit-cards-for-dining-out?utm_source=wisebread&amp;utm_medium=internal&amp;utm_campaign=travel">bonus points for dining</a> if you frequent restaurants often. Get a card that offers <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/the-best-5-credit-cards-for-groceries?utm_source=wisebread&amp;utm_medium=internal&amp;utm_campaign=travel">high grocery rewards</a>. This will help you earn more points faster.</p> <h2>3. Not All Redemption Opportunities Offer the Same Value</h2> <p>Frequent travelers know how to look for <em>value</em> when redeeming their miles. Planning ahead of time to grab the best award price and comparing different routes will get you a much higher value for your hard earned points.</p> <h2>4. Look for Award Flights on Partner Airlines</h2> <p>If you're searching for award seats on a particular airline, look up the partners that also accept that airline's miles, and search for flights through them. Sometimes award seats show up on a partner site search rather than the specific airline site you're looking to fly on. Sometimes fees are much lower for the same flight through a partner airline. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/how-airline-partnerships-can-supercharge-your-travel-rewards?utm_source=wisebread&amp;utm_medium=seealso&amp;utm_campaign=travel">The Secret to Getting the Cheapest Award Flights</a>)</p> <h2>5. Look for Business and First Class International Flights</h2> <p>You might think that business or first class seats are out of your reach, but when it comes to miles, a seat in business class on an international flight that would normally cost two to three times the cost of a coach seat, might only be 50% more miles. Instead of using your miles for a few domestic flights, saving them for upgraded seats on an international flight would give you much more value for your points.</p> <p><em>Do you play the airline miles game?

Now that travel is a necessity more than a luxury, we'll take whatever quality of service we can get (right down to being stuck on the tarmac for hours). So, to make your travel experience a more pleasant one, try any combination of these <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/5-hidden-comforts-to-consider-when-choosing-an-airline">in-flight amenities</a>. Even if they cost a bit, they are worth the added comfort.</p> <h2>1. Priority Boarding</h2> <p>If you're running late for your flight or simply hate standing in long lines, know that some airlines let you purchase priority boarding passes. Buy these pre-flight or at a kiosk while you're checking-in for your flight. The cost is between $10 and $25.</p> <h2>2. Special Meals, Wine, and Spirits</h2> <p>Unless you remember to bring your own food and drinks or have a really short flight, don't give up your personal comfort because you don't want to pay for the onboard food and beverage service. It's not much more expensive than food purchased at any airport or train station.</p> <h2>3. Wi-Fi</h2> <p>In-flight Wi-Fi costs anywhere from $5&ndash;$14 per day to $25&ndash;$50 for monthly passes. Meanwhile, you can download your own movies or log-in to a subscription service and stream your very own in-flight entertainment (though some Wi-Fi packages include movies). It's a great way to be entertained or catch up on work and e-mails.</p> <h2>4. Headsets</h2> <p>Headsets are a necessity, especially if you're going to be on a long flight. Definitely splurge and pay the extra $2 for a pair. They are yours to keep, so you can hang on to them as a backup pair. It's worth it to drown out the noise of others and relax during your flight.</p> <h2>5. Extra Legroom</h2> <p>Personally, I will not pay for seats with extra legroom. Then again, I'm 5'7&quot;. But, if you're tall, or just like extra space, grab yourself an extra legroom seat and stretch out. They are definitely worth the cost on longer flights. And don't be fooled into thinking you can just wait until the flight takes off and switch seats, because that is no longer allowed.</p> <h2>6. In-Flight Entertainment</h2> <p>Some airlines offer in-flight entertainment programed with television stations, popular games, Sirius Satellite radio, and box office movies for around $6 per movie or $16 for a day pass for the full in-flight entertainment package.</p> <h2>7. First Class and Business Class</h2> <p>The in-flight amenities mentioned above are complementary if you're willing to shell out some extra cash and fly first or business class. Additionally, with a premium seat purchase, most airlines throw in added perks, like access to the airport lounge, one complimentary checked bag, and complimentary food and alcoholic beverages.</p> <p><em>Which in-flight perks do you indulge in?</em></p> <h2 style="text-align: center;">Like this post?

But did you know that many of these websites are powered by the same search engine?</p> <p><a href="http://matrix.itasoftware.com/search.htm">ITA Matrix</a> is the powerful software behind such household names as Kayak and Orbitz. It's a great place to start when you're looking for airfares. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/top-5-travel-reward-credit-cards">Best Travel Rewards Credit Cards</a>)</p> <h2>Why Have I Never Heard of It?</h2> <p>Unlike other flight search websites, ITA Matrix does not book flights for you. Other websites earn money through bookings, while ITA earns money through selling its software to the travel industry. This is why consumers are not likely to see their ads or find them by googling &quot;book cheap flights.&quot; What ITA Matrix does is search for flights so you can book them elsewhere. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/10-ways-to-get-free-or-almost-free-airline-tickets?ref=seealso">10 Ways to Get Dirt Cheap Airline Tickets</a>)</p> <h2>Why Use It?</h2> <p>Using ITA Matrix does involve an extra step, but it's worth the extra time because it's the most flexible flight search engine out there. It can take into account many different factors of your trip to help you find the perfect airfare. If you have a flexible itinerary or if you're using <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/top-5-travel-reward-credit-cards">air miles</a>, ITA Matrix can actually save you time by doing in one search what other websites can only do in multiple searches. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/negotiate-all-your-travel-the-ultimate-guide?ref=seealso">Negotiating All Your Travel</a>)</p> <h2>Searching for Airfares on ITA Matrix</h2> <p>At first glance, the search form looks like any other flight site's. You first choose between &quot;round trip,&quot; &quot;one-way,&quot; and &quot;multi-city.&quot; Then, you enter your city, the destination, travel dates, number of passengers, and cabin class. The magic lies in its other search options.</p> <h3>Flexible Dates</h3> <p>If you don't have specific travel dates in mind, you can take advantage of price fluctuations to get cheaper airfares. When you do a search on ITA Matrix, choose the &quot;See calendar of lowest fares&quot; option and enter the earliest date you can fly out. The website will show you a calendar view of the cheapest dates over the next month.</p> <h3>Flexible Trip Duration</h3> <p>If you can't decide how long to stay in your destination, ITA Matrix can help by showing you how much your airfare would cost depending on the length of your stay.</p> <p>For example, if you enter &quot;5-7&quot; in the &quot;length of stay&quot; field on the search page, you'll again see a calendar view of the airfares over the next month. But this time, when you hover over a date, ITA Matrix will show you how much the airfare would cost if you were to fly out on that date and stay for each trip length option &mdash; in this example, five, six and seven nights. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/20-secrets-of-last-minute-travel?ref=seealso">20 Secrets of Last-Minute Travel</a>)</p> <h3>Flexible Airports</h3> <p>Another way you can save big on airfares is by choosing to fly out of less-busy airports. With other flight search websites, you may have to search each airport one by one.</p> <p>ITA Matrix allows you to search multiple airports at once. You can enter each airport by name, but where ITA Matrix really shines is when you click the &quot;Nearby&quot; link and let the software search all airports up to 2,000 miles.</p> <p>This is especially useful when you have several destination options and can't decide which one to choose. If you enter all your possible destinations, ITA Matrix will show you whether it's cheaper to go to Fiji or Australia.</p> <p>This feature is also great for when you want to explore an entire region and have no preference on where you start or end your trip. For example, if you want to book airfares for a trip to Europe, you may search the entire region to see the cheapest entry and exit points. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/how-to-get-the-lowest-price-on-airfare-even-after-you-buy?ref=seealso">Get the Lowest Rates on Airfare Even After You Buy</a>)</p> <h3>Using Air Miles</h3> <p>If you'll be using air miles to pay for the flight, ITA Matrix is undoubtedly the best place to find your airfare. The software has all sorts of advanced search functions that allow you to make full use of your air miles.</p> <p>If you click &quot;Advanced routing codes&quot; on the search page, you can search by airline. You can also have ITA Matrix calculate the price per mile of your flight.</p> <h2>Choosing Your Flights</h2> <p>After you choose a date from the calendar view, ITA Matrix will show you all your flight options, arranged by price.</p> <p>You can narrow down your search at this point by playing around with the column headings. For example, if you click the &quot;from/to&quot; heading, you can choose to see only flights leaving from the JFK airport.</p> <p>Another neat feature is the &quot;Time bars&quot; view, which shows each flight as a color-coded bar from departure to arrival.</p> <p>Once you've made a decision, you can choose an airfare by clicking on the price button. ITA Matrix will show you all the flight details you need to make a booking.</p> <h2>Booking the Flight</h2> <p>Armed with the flight details, you can go to the airline website and book there directly. For example, if you choose a flight on United Airlines, just go to the United Airlines website and find the flight there.</p> <p>Alternatively, you can make a booking through a travel agent or another website.

While I used to use my flight time as a way to catch up on reading, sample new music, or even catch a nap, I now see flights as a wonderful opportunity to get some much-needed work done. Being productive on an airplane isn&rsquo;t always easy, however; heightened security measures, electronic device limitations, and even the lack of personal space are all common obstacles to the motivated traveler. Here are the tips I swear by &mdash; all designed to pack more punch into your traveling workday. (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/top-5-travel-reward-credit-cards">5 Best Travel Reward Credit Cards</a>)</p> <h2>1. Pack Well</h2> <p>It is important to know just what tools you will really use on your flight. If you are like me and own a smartphone, tablet, netbook, and full-size laptop, it can be tempting to bring just one or go overboard by stuffing them all into an already stressed out carry-on. I like to take an assessment of what tasks I will realistically want to do during my flight. If I will be doing a large amount of word processing, for example, the netbook or laptop is a requirement; if the flight will be short, and I can use the time to catch up on industry articles and e-mail organization, my tablet will suffice. Don&rsquo;t bring any more than you need, and make sure you don&rsquo;t leave your best tools at home.</p> <h2>2. Research Your Flight (and Seat)</h2> <p>Not all flights have Wi-Fi, and most won&rsquo;t have access to a power outlet. Using a site like <a href="http://www.seatguru.com/">Seat Guru</a> can help you plan your travel time wisely by showing you all of the amenities your flight (and specific seat) will provide. Please note, however, that flights get changed at the last minute. I have pinned my hopes on a flight that said it offered Wi-Fi, only to find that that particular plane was grounded for the day; the alternate plane left me completely without the Internet service I was counting on.</p> <h2>3. Assign and Check In Early</h2> <p>Regardless of whether you book your flight personally or you rely on a company travel department, you still have the ability to view and change your specific seat assignment &mdash; provided there are alternate seats in your price class available. This is not only great for those who insist on an aisle seat (more elbow room for using the laptop); it can also help you secure one of the few spots on the plane in an empty row, giving you even more room to work. Some small carriers and fully booked flights won&rsquo;t allow you to see your seat assignment until you board the plane; for every other flight, however, checking in before arriving at the airport can help you secure the most productive seat in the cabin.</p> <h2>4. Prepay for Internet</h2> <p>For flights that offer wireless in-flight Internet, you can choose to pay for your service time while in the air, or pay for a code that can be used on any future flight. If I know that I am traveling soon, I buy wireless Internet time before I leave. Not only is it usually more affordable, it also guarantees that I can start surfing the web while everyone else is fiddling around for the credit card. When you only have 30 to 90 minutes of &ldquo;electronics are okay&rdquo; flight time, it is essential not to waste even 10. Wireless providers often offer free service time during holidays or special promotions; if you find that you don&rsquo;t need to use your prepaid code, you can still use it on a later flight.</p> <h2>5. Save Pages for Later</h2> <p>If your flight is not offering Internet, you can still view the web. Services like <a href="http://www.instapaper.com/">Instapaper</a> not only save your favorite web pages and articles for offline viewing, they simplify the page design for optimal text reading. (I also use <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/evernote/id281796108?mt=8">Evernote</a> for my iPad to do reading without internet.)</p> <h2>6. Have a Back-Up Plan</h2> <p>If it is absolutely imperative that you get a certain number of tasks done while flying, be prepared to have a plan B or plan C in place. Flights are unpredictable, and turbulence, technical issues, or even a chatty seatmate can make it impossible to do those things you needed to get done during flight. Have a supply of alternative activities to do that don&rsquo;t require electronics (brainstorming ideas in a notebook can be very productive), research airports ahead of time to see if you can cram some busy time in during a layover, and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/6-things-to-keep-you-sane-on-a-plane">bring headphones to wear</a>, even if you aren&rsquo;t jamming to music &mdash; it politely lets other travelers know that you want to be left alone.</p> <p>Flights are an energy and time drain that many don&rsquo;t look forward to. If you view them as an opportunity to get to where you need to go while you <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/tips-for-accomplishing-more-in-a-day">get stuff done</a>, however, it creates a window of productivity that you may not get in your daily office life.</p> <p><em>What tips do you have for cranking out more work while flying?</em></p> <br /><div id="custom_wisebread_footer"><div id="rss_tagline">This article is from <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/linsey-knerl">Linsey Knerl</a> of <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/6-ways-to-get-more-done-on-airplanes">Wise Bread</a>, an award-winning personal finance and <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/credit-cards">credit card comparison</a> website.

I'm sure that I don't even have to tell you that all of these flight deals are <strong><em>non-refundable</em></strong>, as well.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">Since my airport isn&rsquo;t served by Spirit Airlines, I decided to take look-see anyway, using some hypothetical travel scenarios, and comparing them to results I found on Travelocity.<span> </span>Here is what I found:</p> <p class="MsoNormal">To travel from Atlanta (ATL) to Fort Lauderdate (FLL) on April 14th, returning the very next day, it would cost:</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong>$158</strong><span> </span>($138 + $21 in fees) from the Spirit Airlines Red Light promotion site</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><strong>$210</strong><span> </span>($183 + $27 in fees) for the cheapest flight on Travelocity.<span> </span>Interestingly enough, this flight was the same flight on Spirit Airlines.<span> </span>The next highest airline was AirTran.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">A dozen subsequent searches gave me the same kind of results.<span> </span>Spirit Air was significantly cheaper, in most instances.<span> </span>In only one case, a flight from New York to Detroit, Spirit Airlines was $5 less on Travelocity. There were still quite a few seats left on these select flights, and surprisingly, the flights weren&rsquo;t all red-eye seats in the back cabin.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">While it&rsquo;s not likely that many people are going to be able to take advantage of the jaw-dropping $9 fare, there are still deals to be had, especially if you&rsquo;re heading to Florida in the next month.

On an airplane? (See also: <a href="http://www.wisebread.com/alternatives-to-flying-other-ways-to-get-from-here-to-there" title="Alternatives to Flying: Other Ways to Get From Here to There">Alternatives to Flying: Other Ways to Get From Here to There</a>)</p> <p>Try <a href="http://www.airtech.com/">Air Tech</a>.</p> <p>The premise of these services is that airline companies who don't fill flights would rather the seats go at a discount than not at all. So they sell their extra seats to the above companies, who in turn offer them to their subscribers.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Here's how it works: You purchase a &quot;voucher&quot; to fly from Los Angeles to Hawaii for $179 for example. Once you have the pass in hand (and within a year of purchasing it usually), you submit your travel window or preferred dates of travel. You will be notified of any available seats, and you basically fly on a glorified stand-by basis. You need to be flexible in your travel; sometimes your preferred date of travel isn't available, or there's only a flight to a neighboring city (or even country) on that day. If you are a business traveller or have a very specific window of availability, it is suggested that you book a confirmed flight instead.</p> <p>But if you have an open itinerary and want to get on a plane inexpensively, air-hitch-hiking seems to be a way to do it on the cheap.</p> <p>Most of the available flight routes I found in my research were from selected US cities to Europe or Hawaii.</p> <p>I don't have any experience with these services, so I turn it to you: Has anybody flown with either of these companies? Or are there other ways to fly inexpensively that Wise Bread Bloggers need to know about?
