Did you know there are ways to save just by using some basic functions on your computer?

Travel Hack #1

Enable Private Browsing

Next time you book your flights, hotels and rental car enable private browsing. Travel sites, like many other sites online, use cookies to track your visits. Browsing without enabling the private browsing feature can raise your price simply because you’ve performed more searches for the same trip. If you don’t know how to enable private browsing, Google “enable private browsing your browser here” for directions.

Travel Hack #2

Delete Those Cookies

Have you ever heard of “Dynamic Pricing?” Refreshing the same window over and over will not get secure a better price, but can actually work against you. The more certain criteria is searched, “perceived demand” goes up (even if it’s the same person) and can raise the price, so clear your cookies and enable private browsing.

Travel Hack #3

Book two one-way flights

Need a round-trip ticket?

Aside from having amassed a bounty of frequent flier miles, here’s a one good way to save on a round-trip ticket. Book two one-way tickets. It can be cheaper and can get you better arrival and departure times. Some travel sites do this for you, but it’s best to do your due diligence. Check the airline websites directly, you may find even better deals that way.

Travel Hack #4

Book Economy Ticket with a Y or B Booking Code

Booking an economy ticket with a Y or B booking code, when possible, tells the airline you are looking for an upgrade should any seats come available in the next class up from yours. It will be a complimentary upgrade should the opportunity arise. It works best for those who have frequent flier miles and are loyal to the airline they’ve booked with.

Apps, most airlines have them, they’ve spent a lot of cash developing them and they can help you save money.

Travel Hack #5

Download Your Airline’s App
