Finding Last Minute Flights Online

Finding last minute flight deals online is a great way to save money on your next trip. Three sites I typically use to find these deals are.

1. www.lastminutespider.com/flights.htm
2. www.smartertravel.com/airfare/search/
3. www.cheaptickets.com

Airline sites are another great way to find extremely cheap last minute flight deals. I found Southwest and American Airlines to have the best deals when I am searching  last minute.

If you are planning to fly on one of the more popular days of the year and possibly to one of the most traveled to destinations in the world, then you will want to make sure you book your trip days in advance. Popular flights that are always packed with people tend to increase in price the closer you get to the trip date. Airlines know this so they will increase the price as a type of penalty for waiting to book your flight. They know they will fill the seat regardless of who pays, so charging more money for it is just more money in their pocket.

Sometimes there are occasions when waiting until the last day can work to your advantage. If you are a spur of the moment type person, that likes to travel on a whim and do not really care about what day you leave, then booking a last minute flight may be the best way for you to to take a budget flight. Flights that are hardly ever packed or are to a less than popular destinations will cause the airlines to drop their rates the closer it gets to the flight date in hopes of filling every seat.
