The internet has made it easier than ever to book tickets. There are several big name sites out there that can seriously help you find the best travel deals — and that is a good thing, because where any type of travel is concerned, you have got to shop around. This is especially true of holiday travel. Comparison shop at as many places as you can, and you increase your chances of getting a good deal.
Believe it or not, knowing the airports in the areas you will be departing and arriving can help save money as well. Say you live in upstate or central New York: it might be cheaper to fly out of Syracuse than Albany, Rochester, or Buffalo. You might have to travel a little farther, but money saved and the availability of fares could be well worth the extra effort.
