Holiday Travel 101
Get the Best Airfare
Start with a metasearch engine like Kayak.com; search your destination and dates, then click on "Chart" to see how prices on your chosen route have risen and fallen over the previous 90 days. If you have a price in mind already, plug your details in at Yapta.com; the website will keep searching and alert you when your threshold has been met. With the holidays quickly approaching, however, it's probably best to pull the trigger and book your flight the moment you find anything reasonable.
