Vacations are supposed to be relaxing, but if you've ever dealt with booking flights, packing, going to the airport, getting on a plane, or any combination of those, you know that getting to your relaxation destination is actually the most stressful thing in the world.
Thankfully, there are so many little tricks that can take the blood, sweat, and tears out of your travel plans, and thirty of them are below!
No more hyperventilating in the airport bathroom. Get ready for your life to change.
Go Incognito When Booking Flights
When you’re booking flights, be sure to clear your cookies or go “incognito” if you’re using Google Chrome.
Travel sites will often track your visits and can raise the prices on you just because you’ve visited their site before.
Browse For Flights On Tuesdays
via: ZME Travel
Tuesday afternoons are when airlines post the best deals on flights. I’m not sure why, but it’s a real thing. Take this hack, go forth, and book cheap flights, my child.
Book Flights Way In Advance OR Last Minute
via: Cheap Air
Sometimes it’s tough, but for the best deals on flights, it’s best to book either super early (we’re talking six months in advance) or really last minute.
This is a great hack for both the uber-planners and uber-procrastinators out there.
Book Two One-Way Flights
via: Pegi Pegi
It can be cheaper to book two one-way flights as opposed to one round trip. You can look through a bunch of different airlines and find individual flights at the times (and prices!) that work best for you.
Fly In the Morning
Turbulence and storms usually occur in the afternoon, so if you like your flights smooth, it’s best to fly early in the morning.
It’s not the most popular option, I know. But that’ll help you on another level. Because early flights aren’t as popular, they tend to be a little cheaper.
Worth the 4 AM alarm if you ask me.
