I heard that if you point your computer towards the North star at midnight and then pour a glass of brandy out your window that the travel Gods will shine upon you and bring you the lowest fares. This nonsense, along with so many other ludicrous theories perpetuated by clickbait morons keeps people from getting great deals and it’s high time that someone dispelled the rumors. All of the below are false…

Tuesday Is The Magic Day To Buy Airline Tickets…

This is utterly false. There’s no magic day. If there was no one would ever book any tickets on any other day. There is a general range where you’ll find the best deals. Anytime from 200 days to 21 days is a good time frame, and some say roughly 54 days can be the best. In a world of increasing flash sales it’s far more important to have an understanding of average prices so you know a steal than to think about days. Don’t hesitate if a bargain comes along 355 days out.

When An Airline Says “Sale” It Means Cheap Tickets…

When Justin Bieber says he doesn’t use autotune should we believe that as well? The thing about airlines is that they’re having a “sale” just about every day of the year. With few exceptions, if an airline is actually announcing a sale, there’s a high likelihood that it’s hardly a deal and you should at best glance and then keep calm and carry on.

This One Site Always Has The Best Prices…

Think about that. Can you actually imagine? Everyone else would be out of business overnight! Not all sites display all airlines or fares and occasionally one undercuts its competitors, but that changes by the search. To know you’re getting a good deal use Google Flights, compare different online travel agencies and compare booking direct with the airline. You’ll get a different outcome almost every time…

Clearing Your Internet History Will Get You Lower Prices…

It’s never a bad idea to search using an Incognito Browser, which is easy to do with Google Chrome but it won’t often lower fares. It will however keep you from getting those creepy emails telling you to finish booking your flight, even when you’re not logged in. There’s no evidence that fares have actually spiked because of browser history, just creepiness, but for the sake of your privacy, go Incognito anyway, it’s a lot easier than clearing history…

Airlines Punish You For Skipping Flights…

There are millions of reasons why someone may possibly need to miss the last leg of their itinerary, ranging from personal emergencies to changing business plans. As long as you don’t specifically tell an airline you plan to miss the last leg, and you follow the guidelines for hidden city ticketing, there’s virtually no instance in which the airline will remotely care or do anything. Sure, you won’t get the miles for the flight you miss, but you’ll get the rest.
