Destinations Out of the Country

If you do a little extra sleuthing, you can also find cheap air fares for these destinations outside the country.

  • Punta Cana
  • Santo Domingo
  • Tokyo
  • Mumbai

As you search for the best deals consider airlines breaking into the U.S. market. When airlines enter a new market they often run introductory fare specials. These airlines offer new alternatives and a greater savings. With this in mind, look for airlines breaking into the U.S. market for low air fares if you plan a trip outside the country.

Other Ways to Save

Air fare is just one financial piece of the puzzle when it comes to saving money when traveling. Other ways to save include finding the best hotel for your money. If you plan to frequent attractions, take in the sites, and do some shopping, you won’t spend much time in the hotel room, so all you really us a clean room and comfortable bed.

City passes are another good way to get the most bang for your buck. They cover a multitude of things to do and see and are available for Chicago, Los Vegas, and Orlando.

Lastly, save on meals by eating a late breakfast/early lunch and cut out one meal, or stay at a hotel that serves breakfast at no extra charge.
