I have been receiving email alerts from American Airlines since my last trip to Florida to see my dad. Sometimes you can get great deals on flights. With patience and flexibility in planning you might be able to save yourself a ton of money. Check the airlines that you would like to travel on and sign up for their alerts.
Make sure you search for your travel arrangements in secret because your price might increase if you don’t. Your browser has cookies and when you repeatedly search for the same route the booking sites will realize this and could raise your prices because they want to get you to book the flight, hotel, or other arrangements. Make sure you search in incognito or private browser mode to get the lowest prices.
For Google Chrome – The easiest way to open an Incognito window is with the keyboard shortcut combination Ctrl-Shift-N (Windows) or Command-Shift-N (macOS).
For Mozilla Firefox – From the keyboard, a private browsing session can be called up using the combination Ctrl-Shift-P (Windows) or Command-Shift-P (macOS).
For Safari – To open a Private Window on a Mac, users can do a three-key combination of Command-Shift-N, the same shortcut Chrome adopted.
Your cookies are reset each time you re-open an incognito window. So if you want to start anonymously for each flight search (so your previous searches aren’t “remembered”, potentially inflating costs), close all your incognito windows, open a new one, and then perform your search.
