Going somewhere? Driving takes a long time and a lot of gas. So what do you do when you are on a shoestring budget and you need to fly to get to your destination? You plan on planning ahead.
When I knew I would need to make several short trips early this year, I asked the sage advice of friends who travel much more than I do. Several said to start my search at an all-encompassing travel Web site which will list all the airlines going to my destination. Expedia.com, Orbitz.com and Travelocity.com are just a few of the popular ones.
A new one I just found is TravelZoo.com, which advertises last minutes deals. Usually the last minute ones are going places I want to go, not need to go.
I was told next to take the list of airlines going to my destination and check the actual Web site of each airline. This method works great when you know you already have your transportation and housing figured out.
