===Searching for and Acquiring Cheap Tickets===
Many people have heard about ticket search engines like Cheaptickets.com, Orbitz, and [http://www.kayak.com Kayak] (only the last one is hyperlinked because the others suck). But if you are truly committed to saving money, you have to do more than simply search on these sites. Here is the
three step process:
:(1) Look at ticket prices for your destination and dates on [http://www.kayak.com Kayak.com]. If you sign up with them you can see prices for up to 3 days before and after the date you choose. This is a good idea. Take note of all the airlines that have reasonable prices. Also note if the ticket is being sold by the airlines website or by another search engine (like Orbitz or Vayama). Avoid buying off these websites if possible.
:Search around and find a good deal. The best are those that expire soon. $50 is an average saving, and taking less is not really worth the risk. Contact the poster and arrange payment through [http://www.paypal.com Paypal], but be careful. Some people may offer to book the ticket for you and then you pay them. This explanation requires a whole other article.
:(5) Enjoy your flight !
