3) Try flying to and from different airports that are nearby

You can also find cheaper flights flying out of major hubs in the United States. For example, you can find cheaper flights to Europe and Asia from LAX and JFK. Then, you could buy a separate ticket to either of those hubs.
4) Search for flights in “incognito”
Use the “incognito” mode when searching for flights. What does that mean? Search engines use a tracking tool called “cookies.” Basically this means travel sites can tell that you’ve been looking at a particular destination and will do whatever they can to raise the prices on you. Making sure your browser is in “incognito” will ensure that these travel sites can’t track your search history.
5) Check flight travel companies
There are flight travel companies that will list out your different airline options to your final destination. They will list the flights from the cheapest to the most expensive. Make sure to check these sites regularly in “incognito” mode.
6) Use your travel points
Do you have a credit card? Many cards offer points that can be applied towards travel. If you don’t have one, sign up today and you could earn up to 60,000 points by meeting their qualifications. You can apply these points directly to a flight to receive a discount, or even pay for the whole flight depending on how many points you have. Chase Sapphire Preferred, for example, is offering 60,000 points.
7) Work With a Monthly Roamers Representative
